Everyone knows Arnold Schwarzenegger and the fact that he is one of the most prominent personalities in both the showbiz and political arena. The iconic actor/politician is also one man who loves his family more than anything else. From Maria, Patrick, Katherine, Joseph, Christina, to Christopher Schwarzenegger, they all mean so much to him. Like his siblings, Christopher is best known as Arnold’s son with Maria Shriver. He is not always in the news like most kids born to celebrity parents and appears to be very comfortable with his decision to distance himself from the curious eyes of the public and media. The young man is still in the process of forging his own path – that’s why there is little information about him. Other facts to know about him are available here.
Brief Bio & Age
Christopher Schwarzenegger was born to Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger on the 27th day of September 1997. He was born on American soil, precisely in Los Angeles, California, in the United States. He holds an American nationality and belongs to the White race. Chris is currently studying at the University of Michigan following his graduation from Brentwood School, East Campus, in 2016. Presently, he has not shown any interest in following the rest of his family into the show business even though it’s still early to rule out the possibility of him doing so in the nearest future.
Christopher Schwarzenegger’s Family – Siblings
As you already know, the Kardashians are not the only popular celebrity family. The Schwarzeneggers have been in the spotlight for decades due to their influential presence in the political sector and showbiz. Christopher has three siblings and a half brother. Kathrine, Christina, and Patrick all came from his father’s relationship with his mother while Joseph Baena is a product of his father’s extramarital affair with his housekeeper of 20 years.
Kathrine, who happens to be the eldest child of his parents, is an author and a graduate of the University of Southern California. She was born Katherine Eunice Schwarzenegger on 13th December 1989 in Los Angeles, California. In addition to writing, she supports the Best Friends Animal Society and also serves as an Ambassador of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. She is engaged to popular American screen star Chris Pratt, as of January 13, 2009.
His elder brother, Patrick, is a model and actor famed for appearing in movies such as Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, The Benchwarmers, Stuck in Love, Midnight Sun, and Grown Ups 2. Born on September 18, 1993, in Los Angeles, California, in the U.S, he is a graduate of Brentwood High School, the University of Southern California, and the USC Marshall School of Business, from where he passed out a minor in Cinematic Arts in May 2016. The 6 feet 1-inch hunk also has a clothing line which he launched at the age of 15. He would franchise his own Blaze Pizza in the year 2014 at The Grove in Los Angeles and today boasts other locations at USC. He is signed to LA Models and hoping to make it to Armani and Ralph Lauren ad campaigns.
Christopher’s immediate older sister is called Christina Schwarzenegger. She was born in Los Angeles as well on 23rd July 1991. Nothing much is known about her personal life but we can confirm that she is a student at Georgetown University, where she has been studying since 2013.
The last child that was born into the Schwarzenegger family is Joseph Baena, who was born to the legendary actor by his housekeeper called Mildred Patricia Baena just five days after the birth of Christopher. Joseph was born on the 2nd day of October 1997, in Los Angeles, California, but Arnold was only told Joseph was his son after he clocked eight years. The shocking revelation eventually led to Arnold and Shriver’s devastating divorce in 2011.
Although Baena was illegitimately born to the actor, Maria and her children maintain a cordial relationship with him. Like his father, Joseph is already great in bodybuilding. He graduated from Frontier High School in 2015 and is currently studying at Pepperdine University.
Christopher’s mother, Maria Shriver, is a renowned author, journalist, former First Lady of California, and currently a special anchor and correspondent for NBC News. She is the only daughter of Sargent Shriver (a politician) and activist Eunice Kennedy Shriver (mother), who gave birth to her on November 6, 1955, in Chicago, Illinois.
His dad Arnold is a multi-hyphenate – an actor, politician, filmmaker, philanthropist, businessman, investor, activist, author, former professional bodybuilder and powerlifter. Born on July 30, 1947, in Thal, Styria, Austria, as Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger, he rose to immense popularity as a Hollywood action film icon. He got married to Maria on April 26, 1986, in Hyannis Massachusetts.
