Chris Pratt has been opening up about his mental health before he met his wife, the self-help author Katherine Schwarzenegger.
On Tuesday’s episode of The Drew Barrymore Show (4 April), the Super Mario Bros Movie voice actor said: “I met Katherine – now it’s been five, six years ago. 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.”
He added: “There was a moment in my life that I was really struggling and felt really broken.
“For me, [it was] my own journey finding a higher power and leaning on that and feeling like, ‘Please save me,’ and feeling saved. And then shortly later, [I met] the woman of my dreams.”
Pratt continued: “It’s all about timing. There’s a perfect plan out there for you. And I think you have to have faith. The minute you have faith, it falls into place.”
The actor explained that he met Schwarzenegger at church. They began dating in 2018 and married the following year.
The couple share two daughters, Lyla Maria, two, and Eloise Christina, 10 months.
Pratt also shares son Jack, 10, with ex-wife Anna Faris, who is also an actor.

Last week, Pratt said he “totally gets” the backlash over his casting in the film, with many criticising the decision to have the American star play the iconic Italian character.
