Pregnant Katherine Schwarzenegger Posted the Cutest, Never-Before-Seen Childhood Photos with Mom Maria Shriver

Celebs—they're just like us, in that they adore their moms. Case in point: Katherine Schwarzenegger, who shared an adorable slideshow of never-before-seen photos of her family (including mom Maria Shriver) in celebration of Mother's Day.

Among the ten photos she posted are a precious shot of herself as a baby with her mom, a few snaps of her siblings and a candid from her wedding to Chris Pratt. Alongside the photos, Schwarzenegger wrote, "Happy Mother’s Day to the greatest and most remarkable Mama in the entire world! We are the luckiest 4 kids in the entire world to have you as our mama. I am so beyond blessed to learn from you and you have made me want to be a mama for as long as I can remember. You mother not only us 4, but everyone you come in contact with. You are the Queen mother to all and I am so lucky to have you as my mom. I love you!"

Too sweet, right? The 30-year-old author will soon be a mom herself. Less than a year after tying the knot with Pratt in an intimate ceremony in Montecito, California, the couple is expecting their first child together, according to People. This will be the second child for the 40-year-old Pratt, who shares 7-year-old son Jack with ex Anna Faris, and the first child for Schwarzenegger.

The baby news is no big surprise—the couple has been open about wanting to expand their family since the early stages of their relationship. A source previously shared with E! News that Schwarzenegger has "expressed [that] she'd love to be pregnant in early 2020. Chris has a busy year coming up with filming, but both of them are ready to start this next chapter and bring a baby into their happy marriage.”

Can't wait to see what next year's Mother's Day post looks like.
