EXCLUSIVE: Day out with grandma! Maria Shriver is spotted at 18-month-old granddaughter Lyla in Montecito, where pregnant daughter Katherine and husband Chris Pratt now rent a $ 20,000-a-month house block from the Sussexes
Maria Shriver was every inch the doting grandmother when she spent quality time with her namesake granddaughter Lyla Maria Pratt in Montecito, California, earlier this month.
The 66-year-old was spotted walking through Upper Village Park while visiting her daughter Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt, 32, and her young family.
The smiling grandmother could not get enough of the adorable 18-month-old tot, who kept her busy so her pregnant mother could grab a quick bite at the nearby Pierre LaFond & Co market.
‘Maria looked radiant,’ a supervisor told DailyMail.com, adding: ‘She never let go of Lyla’s small hand and pointed things out in the park for her to look at such as dogs, flowers and insects. You can see them enjoying their new role as grandmothers. ‘
Katherine, who is expecting her second child with husband Chris Pratt, was seen stopped for a bite to eat while her mother cared for little Lyla. She stayed comfortable in a black button-up, black leggings and white sneakers for the outing.
The trio hopped into the parking lot before returning to Katherine and husband Chris Pratt’s 3,300 square feet, five bedrooms, eight bathrooms, $ 20,000 a month mid-century modern rental just minutes away. They seem to split their time between this ‘small’ vacation rental in Montecito and their headquarters in the Pacific Palisades area of Los Angeles.
DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal that the Pratts have been renting the $ 4.3 million house for just over a year. While more of a political dynasty, the Kennedys are often referred to as the closest thing the US has to royalty. Thus, it is fitting that the rental house of American royal families is so close to that of a British royal family.

Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, live in the castle with nine bedrooms and 19 bathrooms that they bought in June 2020, with their children Archie, two, and Lilibet, nine months.
“Living so close together, if not all of them have already clashed with each other, it’s just a matter of time, especially with small children to enjoy,” a longtime resident told DailyMail.com. Image: Harry and Meghan’s $ 14.7 million expanded estate in Montecito, California.
Unlike the Sussexes, the family has some ties to the rocky coastal city of Montecito, located just 85 miles north of Los Angeles. Back in 1953, Mary’s uncle John and Aunt Jackie Kennedy were celebrating their honeymoon at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito. There is to this day a cottage named after her on the property. Chris, 42, and Katherine also exchanged wedding vows at San Ysidro Ranch on June 8, 2019.
And now the granddaughter Katherine of the Kennedys lives just two miles from that historic five-star hotel. Another connection to the area is that Mary’s best friend Oprah Winfrey, 68, lives in a $ 50 million Montecito estate, but on the other side of town.
