The Kinder­garten Cop actor mar­ried Shriv­er in 1986 after meet­ing at a ten­nis event nine years ear­li­er. The duo wel­comed four chil­dren — Kather­ine Schwarzeneg­ger, Christi­na Schwarzeneg­ger, Patrick Schwarzeneg­ger and Christo­pher Schwarzeneg­ger — between 1989 and 1997.

The founder of the Alzheimer’s Wom­en’s Move­ment, for her part, issued her own state­ment, say­ing, “These are painful and heart­break­ing times. As a moth­er, my con­cern is for the chil­dren. I ask for com­pas­sion, respect and pri­va­cy as my chil­dren and I try to rebuild our lives and heal. ”

Eunice Kennedy Shriver’s daugh­ter cit­ed “irrec­on­cil­able dif­fer­ences” as the rea­son for her split after more than two decades togeth­er. She also asked Arnold to pay her attor­ney’s fees and spousal sup­port, accord­ing to court doc­u­ments obtained by Us.

Also, for me, as a girl, watch­ing them in this new role is such a beau­ti­ful thing. ”
