Could Chris Pratt officially be moving on from his divorce with Anna Faris?

On June 18, TMZ published a photo of the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom star with Katherine Schwarzenegger—who is, as you may have guessed, the daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger. The two appeared to be a romantic picnic date in Santa Barbara, California and seemed super smitten with each other. But hold up, who exactly is Katherine Schwarzenegger?

We decided to do some digging on the celeb offspring who describes herself on IG as an “addict of all things lifestyle.” And as much as we are so very jealous that she scored a date with our celeb crush, we have to hand it to her, she seems like pretty great. Here are five things we learned about our new fave Schwarzenegger.

She is the eldest daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver

As you may have gathered from her uber-famous moniker, Schwarzenegger is the eldest daughter of actor/politician Arnold Schwarzenegger and journalist Maria Shriver. The 28-year-old is eldest of the power couple’s four children, including younger siblings Christina, Patrick and Christopher.

She is a university graduate

In 2012, Schwarzenegger graduated from the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern California.

She is a *huge* animal lover

Schwarzenegger’s IG is peppered with loads of adorable creatures. From cuddling goats, to smooching horses, it’s clear that she has a serious soft spot for animals. An ambassador for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), the Schwarzenegger helps raise money for animal shelters. She is also an active promoter of #adoptdontshop, a movement dedicated to providing awareness about the importance of pet adoption. And she practices what she preaches. Schwarzenegger adopted her adorable pup, Maverick, which brings us to our next point…

She wrote a children’s book modelled after her own pup

Maverick (who has his own Instagram, btw) is the subject of her children’s book, Maverick and Me, which was published last September and intended to introduce children to the idea of pet adoption.

She is a blogger 

Putting her lifestyle “addiction” to work, Schwarzenegger runs a blog with a focus on lifestyle, animals and health. She also frequently promotes lifestyle-related products, from face masks to popsicle recipes, on her social media.
