During an appearance on "The Drew Barrymore Show" Tuesday, the "Guardians of the Galaxy" star spoke about a moment in his life "when I was really struggling and felt really broken."
"For me, my own journey, [it was about] finding a higher power and leaning on that and being like, 'Please save me,' and then feeling saved," he explained. "And then shortly later, [I met] the woman of my dreams."
Pratt, 43, began dating Schwarzenegger, the daughter of Hollywood star and former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, in 2018 and the two tied the knot the following year.
"God has a fast-forward button, you know. When it's right, boom! You're hit. You fall in love, you get married," he said.
The couple have two daughters, Lyla Maria, 2, and Eloise Christina, 10 months. Pratt is also a father to 10-year-old son Jack, whom he shares with ex-wife Anna Faris.
The "Super Mario Bros. Movie" voice actor also discussed where he first met Schwarzenegger, 33, which he said was at a place of worship.
"I was in the front row of church -- which is like, you kind of don't want to be like, 'Woah, who's that?' at church. You know what I mean?" Pratt recalled. "But I was sneaking some glances and wondering, 'Who is that? Anyway, what am I doing? Come on, I'm broken, help me. But who's that?'"
"So we kinda hit it off. And we didn't start dating right away, but we met there and later on ended up going out," he continued.
Pratt told Barrymore that the experience of meeting his wife was like finding a missing puzzle piece, saying, "it made sense."
"You know when you're doing a puzzle and there's a piece, and you're like, 'I'm certain that's the piece,' and then you jam it, and it looks like it should be the piece (but then) you're like, 'Oh it's that one,'" he said."It just fits together. You're like, 'Oh, it fits because it was the piece that was made to fit there.' It felt like that."
