"Katherine has spent time with Chris' family and they all love her too. She fits in really well with them and vice versa." 

 In December 2018, Pratt posted a sweet tribute to his girlfriend on Instagram, writing, "Your smile lights up the room. I've cherished our time together. Thrilled God put you in my life. Thankful for the laughs, kisses, talks, hikes, love, and care."
