And it’s not what we expected…
Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger announced their engagement in January, with the Guardians of the Galaxy actor popping the question after just seven months of dating.
But how is engaged life? Well, judging by their Instagram activity, it mainly consists of spending time on the actor’s farm, with Chris owning a ranch on Washington State’s San Juan Island.
So, while we thought they would be busy planning an A-list wedding in the Hollywood hills, they’ve actually been raising sheep, chickens and lambs - something that apparently makes them very happy.
In fact, when asked during an interview with E! what life was like on the farm, Katherine Schwarzenegger replied: ‘Well we don't live there full time, but it's a fun adjustment. I have grown up with a bunch of different animals, so it feels very comfortable and at home and just a beautiful part of life.’
The couple’s farm life has been giving us serious Instagram goals this past month, especially during lambing season, providing an endless stream of sleepy newborn lamb videos.
‘I have often wondered why his hands were so rough,’ Katherine posted about her future husband. ‘Now I know. He works the farm. He’s a real man.’
‘Katherine asked me what to write so I wrote the above even though it is not true,’ added Chris. ‘Full disclosure: I have very soft hands. I literally cut my hand today i think, on a lamb. I am from Hollywood. Love, Chris #farmlife.’
