Pratt first shared Psalm 126:3, which reads, “The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.” He then shared Psalm 127:3-4, which reads, “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.”

Celebrities, Christian recording artists, pastors, and politicians congratulated Pratt and Schwarzenegger in the comments.

Lauren Daigle wrote, “So happy for you both!” While Seattle-based Pastor Judah Smith commented, “LOOOOOVVVVEEEEEEEEE.”
