American news journalist and noted family, the second of five kids and only daughter of Sergeant and Eunice Kennedy Shriver. She touched the political trail at 16, working on a Kennedy campaign before going to Georgetown University, graduating 1977. She went immediately into journalistic broadcast training.

She was a national correspondent by 1981, a roving reporter for the syndicated "PM Magazine" TV series. In 1983, she moved to CBS News, then to NBC as a Nightly News Anchor.

One month after graduating from school, she met Arnold Schwarznegger and was instantly attracted. After eight years together they married in Hyannis, MA on 4/26/1986: two daughters were born, Katherine on 12/13/1989 and Christina on 7/23/1991, and a son, Patrick, on 9/25/1993. On 2/01/97 she was admitted to the hospital under the threat of miscarriage. Their son Christopher was born 9/27/1997.

An attractive brunette, she is pencil thin. She and Arnie live in Pacific Palisades, CA where she does much of her work at home. A devoted parent, she takes the kids with her whenever possible.

On February 3, 2004, she quit her job as anchor of Dateline NBC, a news show, in order to attend to her duties as First Lady of California, following her husband's election to Governor. Her mother died on August 11, 2009. Her dad died on January 18,2011. In addition to her recent losses, she and her husband announced their separation after 25 years of marriage on May 10, 2011. Two months later on July 17th, her son Christopher suffered a serious accident while boogie boarding at Malibu Beach. He sustained broken bones and a collapsed lung and was hospitalized in serious condition.
