Chris Pratt, 41, shared a hilarious moment with his father-in-law Arnold Schwarzenegger, 73, during their live appearance on Instagram on New Year’s Eve. The actor was holding a virtual telethon for GreaterGood, a charitable organization he partnered with to raise money for meals to those in need, when he was mistaken for another actor named Chris – Chris Evans – by the Terminator star, who was a special guest on the stream. “Hello Chris…Evans,” Arnold said before correcting himself as his son-in-law greeted him.
“Not Chris Evans, sorry. I’ve screwed up this whole thing right from the beginning,” he joked. “Chris Pratt. Sorry about that. I should know your name, that’s for sure — you’re my favorite son-in-law.”
Chris, who is married to Arnold’s daughter Katherine, 31, couldn’t help but laugh at the mix up and comment and even teased the former Governor of California. “I’m your only son-in-law! I better be your favorite,” he replied.
The cute interaction helped to show the great relationship Chris and Arnold have with each other and got the attention of many fans, who left comments on the video. They also left positive words about Chris’ charitable actions, which ended up raising $615,000, and praised him for ending a tough year on a great note.
“Thank you for this. It was such a positive way to end 2020,” one follower wrote while another called the stream “everything.” A third thanked him and the guests, which also included Jamie Foxx, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Zachary Levi, for “sharing your time and your hearts” with everyone.
When Chris isn’t raising money for those in need with his celeb friends, he’s spending time with Katherine and their new baby girl, Lyla, who was born in Aug. He’s also often seen out and about with his son, Jack, 8, whom he shares with ex Anna Faris, 44, and is known to be a devoted hands-on dad. Whether he’s splashing in waves on the beach with his little ones or openly cuddling them on a stroll, he’s all about family and it’s a delight to see. We look forward to seeing more of Chris’ best moments as an actor and as a father in the new year!
