Anna Faris has offered to officiate Chris Pratt's wedding to Katherine Schwarzenegger.

The 42-year-old actress was married to Chris - with whom she has six-year-old son Jack - for eight years before they split in 2017 but she is thrilled for her ex and offered her services as an ordained minister.

Speaking on her podcast Anna Faris Is Unqualified she said: "Chris texted me this morning and he was like, you know, 'I proposed to Katherine last night,' I was like 'Ah! That's amazing.'

And I texted him back, 'Just want to remind you, I'm an ordained minister.'"

The House Bunny actress went on to explain that she's "so happy" to be able to extend their family to include Katherine - the daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver - and insisted she's over the moon the couple "found each other".

She added: "I so subscribe to the idea of expanding family and love with Jack, I'm just so happy. We're all really happy.

"I knew that it was going to happen, I love her, and I love him, and I'm just so happy that they found each other.

"They're both f***ing amazing people, the truth is there isn't any bitterness."

This isn't the first time Anna has shown her support for the couple, and sent her well wishes to the Guardians of the Galaxy star after he revealed on social media that he had popped the question to his new partner.

Commenting on Chris' Instagram post - which pictured himself and Katherine with her engagement ring on show - Anna wrote: "I'm so happy for you both!! Congratulations! (sic)"

Meanwhile, Chris and Katherine are reportedly planning a summer wedding.

Sources close to the 39-year-old movie star and the 29-year-old author have claimed that their wedding could be right around the corner: "They are one of those rare couples that you root for from the beginning. It won’t be a long engagement - Katherine has already talked about having a [American] summer 2019 wedding."

The couple are also reportedly planning a "religious wedding", as the pair bonded over their shared Christian faith when they started dating back in June last year.

The source added to People magazine: "They’re going to want a religious wedding. I know that Chris does, and I assume that she does, too. God is going to be a part of this marriage."

The news comes after it was claimed earlier this week that the couple had already begun planning their big day.

A source said: "[They are] already starting to plan. They are thinking about Martha's Vineyard which is a special place for Katherine and where she spent a lot of time growing up. Chris wants her to have her perfect day and whatever she wants. It will be a big wedding and very traditional.

"They will have an engagement party and bridal shower for Katherine coming up. It’s a very special time for the family and everyone is completely thrilled. They can't stop smiling and celebrating.”
