Age, parents, siblings
Christopher Schwarzenegger is the youngest child of the famous actor Arnold Schwarzenegger. He was born in Los Angeles, California, on the 27th September 1997. His mother’s name is Maria Shriver, and the niece of the former American president John F. Kennedy. She is a journalist and an activist in her charity organization Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement.
The eldest child is Katherine, who was born in 1989 and is the ambassador for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty. She is an author, and she became engaged to the famous actor Chris Pratt in January this year.
The second eldest sibling is his sister Christina born in 1991; she is an actor, producer, and blogger.
The next is his brother Patrick, born in 1993; he attended the University of Southern California but is now an actor and a model. He gained fame with his role in the film “Midnight Sun”. He is very proud of his little brother Christopher, which he openly showed by congratulating him on the day of his high school graduation, which both parents attended, although they are no longer together.
Education, Personal life
Christopher matriculated from Brentwood School, and in 2016 enrolled at the University of Michigan for his bachelor studies. We don’t know much about his personal life, because unlike his siblings, he likes to keep it private. However, there were some rumors about him being gay, but he has not said anything about it. In 2016, on Valentine’s Day, he was seen with an unknown brunette, so many suspected it was his girlfriend. Christopher is 5 feet 11 inches tall (180cm) tall and weighs 232 pounds (105 Kg). He has been compared many times to his famous father, who was a bodybuilder, and his brother who maintains his good looks, although we have never seen him commenting on any likeness.
When he was 13, he suffered a surfing injury. He had a collapsed lung, broken bones including ribs, and ended up in intensive care. His sister Katherine tweeted at the time saying her brother is a tough little guy, and that he will be fine, but asked everyone to send their positive vibes.
Trivia and Additional Info, Net Worth
He has a mixed ethnicity as he has Austrian, English, Dutch, German and Irish descent.
He also has a half-brother from his father’s affair with the housekeeper named Mildred Baena. She got pregnant, and in 1996 Arnold Schwarzenegger got another son who they named Joseph. This is the reason why his parents divorced, although in one interview Arnold said that it was the stupidest thing he had ever done. Arnold at first didn’t want to accept paternity, but after years with Joseph starting to look more and more like him, he couldn’t deny his son, so he came clean about it.
When he was a teenager, he liked lifting weights like his father, but realized it was not for him, so he decided to learn about acting as well.
Their parents live separately, but all of his siblings and him are in good relations with both of them, and they can be seen grabbing lunches and celebrating on many occasions.
His father, Arnold Schwarzenegger, has also been the governor of California.
He currently has no career as he is in college, but his worth is estimated to be $250,000 courtesy of his parents.
His Famous Father- Arnold Schwarzenegger
Christopher’s father, Arnold Schwarzenegger was born on the 30th July 1947 in Thal, Styria, Austria, the son of Gustav Schwarzenegger and his wife Aurelia. Arnold’s parents were very strict and had different plans for him, but he chose to pursue a career in weight lifting and body-building, and was dedicated to the point that he didn’t attend his father’s funeral. His brother Meinhard died in a car crash in 1971 while driving under the influence of alcohol. Arnold received a bachelor’s degree from Santa Monica College, University of Wisconsin.
