Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son Patrick might be the most famous of the kids, but his siblings are also stars in their own rights.
As far as Icons go in the entertainment industry, Arnold Schwarzenegger is an unmissable addition. The iconic actor dominated the industry with legendary movies like “Terminator” and “Conan The Barbarian.” Arnold would cement his legacy by successfully transitioning to become a foreign-born governor of California in 2003.
However, besides his accomplishments in politics, bodybuilding, and the movie industry, being a father is Arnold’s most accomplished role. The Hollywood icon is a father of five children; four from his marriage to famous ex-wife Maria Shriver and another a product of his transgressions.
Nevertheless, while Arnold might be too old to star in blockbuster movies and turn the industry upside like he used to, his children carry the Schwarzenegger name nowadays. However, while his kids dominate in different arrears of their careers, one person who seems like the front-row flagbearer is Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son and actor, Patrick.
Is Patrick the Most Famous Among the Schwarzenegger Siblings?
Patrick Schwarzenegger is an American model, entrepreneur, and actor famously recognized for his role in the NatGeo miniseries “The Long Road Home.” Patrick, who obtained his bachelor’s degree from the University of Southern California, rose to fame very young. After taking lessons from his father and Nancy Banks, Patrick made his on-screen debut in the sports comedy film “The Benchwarmers” in 2006. He followed it up romance-drama “Stuck in Love” six years later in 2012.
However, since then, the actor has continued to appear regularly in movies like “Grown Ups 2,” “Go North,” and “ Midnight Sun.” Also, Patrick was just 15 years old when she started his clothing line before he then got signed with LA models. Like his father, Patrick is showing his talents in dominating different industries. He has not only continued his father’s legacy in the movie industry, but Patrick is also raising it in the modeling and business world.
The Schwarzenegger Kids
Besides Patrick, the rest of the Schwarzenegger kids also make Arnold proud with their lives and careers. Here are some details about them.
Kathrine Eunice Schwarzenegger Pratt
The oldest of the Schwarzenegger kids, Katherine was born on December 13, 1989, to Arnold and his ex-wife Maria. Katherine was just 21 when she became a New York Times best-selling author with the release of her first book, “Rock What You’ve Got: Secrets to Loving Your Inner and Outer Beauty from Someone Who’s Been There and Back.”
She followed that up with another self-help book, “I Just Graduated . . . Now What?” after she graduated from the Univerity of Sothern California. The book aimed to help her fellow graduates navigate their lives in the “real world.” Katherine is also the author of “Maverick and Me,” a children’s book in 2017, and “The Gift of Forgiveness.”
Now 33 years old, Katherine is a mother of two kids, daughters Lyla and Eloise, from her marriage to husband actor Chris Pratt. The pair started dating in 2018 after meeting at church before tying the knot in June 2019.
Christina Maria Aurelia Schwarzenegger
Christina is the second born and daughter of Arnold and his ex-wife, Maria. The couple welcomed her on July 23, 1991, in Los Angeles. Like her mother, Christina attended Georgetown University, where she obtained a bachelor’s degree in English. She then studied interior architecture at the Parsons School of Design.
Now 31 years old, Christina is a founding member of the Special Olympics Founder’s Council. In addition, she and her mother co-produced Netflix’s 2018 documentary “Take Your Pills.” The series explored Christina’s one-time Adderall addiction, and she has dealt with societal pressures contributing to abusing the controlled substance.
Christopher Sargent Shriver Schwarzenegger
Christopher is the last child of Arnold and Maria; the couple welcomed him on September 27, 1997. In contrast to his elder siblings, Christopher has stayed largely out of the limelight. However, he graduated from the University of Michigan in 2020.
However, due to the Covid restriction, Christopher attended his graduation ceremony online. Still, that didn’t stop Arnold from praising his son with a post on Instagram. After posting a photoshopped image of his son on Instagram, Arnold wrote:
“Christopher, you are a champion and I love you. I know your graduation from Michigan wasn’t the big celebration you dreamed about for years, but walking across a stage isn’t what makes me so proud of you.”
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son from his affair with housekeeper Mildred Baena, Joseph, was born on October 2, 1997. Mildred kept his identity as Arnold’s son hidden for almost a decade before their resemblance erased all doubt. However, while his existence ended Arnold’s and Maria’s marriage, the father and son maintain a very close relationship.
Although it took some time for things to appear normal between the two, the duo now even attend gym sessions together. Joseph wants to follow in his father’s footsteps as a bodybuilder, and with Arnold’s genes and dedicated coaching, the sky’s the limit for what Joseph can achieve.
