Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger attend the "SUPER NINTENDO WORLD" welcome celebration at Universal Studios Hollywood on February 15, 2023 in Universal City, California.

Chris Pratt recently revealed that before meeting his wife Katherine Schwarzenegger, his mental health was in really bad shape. While appearing on Tuesday’s (April 4) episode of The Drew Barrymore Show, the Super Mario Bros. Movie voice actor revealed that he was “really struggling and felt really broken” right before he met her.

“I met Katherine five, six years ago,” Pratt, 43, told the host. “God has a fast-forward button, you know. When it’s right — boom! — you’re hit. You fall in love, you get married. Now we have two beautiful daughters to add to my family, and it feels really great.”

Pratt’s Strong Faith

He then shared, “There was a moment in my life that I was really struggling and felt really broken. For me, my own journey finding a higher power and leaning on that and feeling like, ‘Please save me,’ and feeling saved. And then shortly later, meeting the woman of my dreams. It’s all about timing. There’s a perfect plan out there for you. You just have to have faith. If you have faith, it falls into place.”

“And you guys met in a place of faith?” host Drew Barrymore inquired. Pratt recalled, “We met at a church. I was in the front row of church — which is like, you kind of don’t want to be like, ‘Woah, who’s that?’ at church. You know what I mean?”

“But I was kind of sneaking some glances and wondering, ‘Who is that? Anyway, what am I doing? Come on, I’m broken, help me! But who’s that?'” he jokingly recalled. “So we kinda hit it off. And we didn’t start dating right away, but we met there and later on, ended up going out.” The Guardians of the Galaxy star added that their connection was “very quick.” Comparing their fit for each other to a puzzle, Pratt says Katherine’s “piece” was made to fit his “puzzle.”

Most recently, Pratt paid tribute to his wife in celebration of International Women’s Day. He wrote on Instagram, “We would be nothing if it weren’t for the women in our lives. From my wife, my mom and sister to all the incredible women on my team who hold it down everyday.”

Pratt and Schwarzenegger, 33, began dating in 2018 and married the following year. They share two daughters, Lyla Maria, 2, and Eloise Christina, 10 months. He also shares son Jack, 10, with ex-wife Anna Faris.

Chris Pratt took to Instagram this week in a seemingly “sweet” post to his wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger, but the Guardians of the Galaxy star couldn’t help but note his daughter’s great health.

“Guys. For real. Look how she’s looking at me! I mean. Find you somebody that looks at you like that!! You know!? We met in church,” Pratt wrote. “She’s given me an amazing life, a gorgeous healthy daughter, she chews so loudly that sometimes i put in my ear buds to drown it out, but that’s love! She helps me with everything. In return, periodically, I open a jar of pickles. That’s the trade. Her heart is pure and it belongs to me. My greatest treasure right next to my Ken Griffey Jr Upper Deck Rookie card. Which if you know, you know is saying a lot. It’s her birthday in about 6 weeks. So if I don’t get her anything, I’ll tell her to look back on this post. Love you honey. ❤️❤️”
