Imagine being born into a world of the spotlight and being a hot topic from the moment you are born? Although this comes with its perks, there are many downsides associated with being a celebrity child. While some of these kids readily embrace and thrive in the life they were born into, others prefer to stay away from the limelight and lead a more private life away from their famous families. However, it is not easy to hide from the public – especially if your father is the “The Terminator” and a former California governor. This is precisely the case with the youngest of the Schwarzenegger’s, Christopher Schwarzenegger.
Early Life and Childhood of Christopher Schwarzenegger
Christopher Schwarzenegger was born in Los Angeles, California, on 27th September 1997 Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver. He is the youngest of five children. While his father is known as the biggest movie star in the world, his mother is a California newspaper reporter, journalist, and activist. She is also a niece of the late American President J.F. Kennedy.
Christopher belongs to a uniquely mixed ethnicity background, with Austrian, Irish, German, Scottish, English, Dutch, and French blood. He has four older siblings Christina, Patrick, Katherine, and Joseph Baena (half-brother).
Growing up, Christopher was doted on by his parents and older siblings as the baby of the family. He attended the prestigious Brentwood School in Los Angeles for his high school. Then he went on to the University of Michigan and graduating in 2020. But the major he studied is still a mystery.
Unlike the rest of his family, the ‘fit-body genetic makeup’ seems to have skipped this young man. He also doesn’t seem to be keen on bodybuilding and workout like his father. This is why it is not surprising that he made headlines late last year when the 22-year-old was spotted late last year looking more trimmer than his usual self.
The young man stands at the height of 5’11” and is a bit chubby. He has brown hair and blue eyes. Due to his effort to keep his life private, not much is known about his weight, dress size, shoe size, etc.
Luck is not on your side if you are looking to peep into his life through his social media. Christopher Schwarzenegger is not active over social media. Unlike his siblings, he does not have any official social media accounts on any platform.
At best, you only get to see his face once in a while from his siblings’ social media accounts. Other than that, this celebrity-kid face is a rare occurrence online.
His Dating Life
Very little is known about this Schwarzenegger’s romantic life, unlike his siblings. Most of what is known is only through speculation. In addition to his older sister, Katherine Schwarzenegger, getting married to the Hollywood sweetheart Chris Pratt, the fans of the Schwarzenegger family know all the other siblings’ relationship status except for the youngest.
Just like any celerity family, fans like to know everything that is going on in the family. And the youngest son of Schwarzenegger hasn’t made this very easy. Thus, the speculations. However, according to reports, it is believed that Christopher is currently single.
Accident and Recovery
When he was a teenager, Christopher enjoyed surfing. However, when he was 13, right after his parent’s divorce, he was involved in a surfing accident that left him with broken ribs and a damaged lung.
This accident did bring his parent together to care for him even though they were already in the final stages of the divorce. They come together with a united front to care for their son through the recovery process.
Relationship With His Half-Brother
Rumor has it that the Schwarzenegger siblings’ relationship with their father’s love child is questionable. Joseph Baena was born from an affair Arnold had with their housekeeper, Mildred Baena. This was why Arnold’s wife and Christopher’s mother, Maria Shriver, filed for divorce in 2011.
Although Joseph was fathered by Arnold and was born just a week after his half-brother Christopher, he was kept a secret, and the matter only came to light years later.
According to sources, Christopher has a better connection with his half-sibling than the rest of Schwarzenegger siblings. Despite this, joseph follows all his siblings on social media platforms and regularly interacts with their posts.
To sum up, it is clear that Christopher Schwarzenegger’s life is the complete opposite of his family. He is determined to keep a low profile and keep his private life away from the prying eye of the public. To keep his privacy, he tries his best not to be seen in public and does not have any interest in social media platforms – unlike other young people his age.
Therefore, although many fans like to follow and keep tabs on his life, the best they can get is a few hints and a tonne of speculations. But the young man needs privacy, and it would be best to give him just that.
