Patrick Arnold Shriver Schwarzenegger (born September 18, 1993)[1] is an American model and actor.

Early life and family[edit]

Patrick Schwarzenegger was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. He is the third of four children and eldest son of Maria Shriver, a journalist and author who is a member of the Kennedy family, and Austrian-born bodybuilder, actor, and former Republican California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.[3] His maternal grandmother, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, founded the Special Olympics and was the sister of President John F. Kennedy, and his maternal grandfather, Sargent Shriver, was the United States Ambassador to France, the 1st Director of the Peace Corps, and the Democratic vice-presidential candidate in the 1972 U.S. presidential election.

Patrick has two older sisters, Katherine (born December 13, 1989) and Christina (born July 23, 1991)[1][4] a younger brother, Christopher (born September 27, 1997),[5] and a younger paternal half-brother, Joseph (born October 2, 1997).[6][7] Patrick has the same birthday as cousin Matthew Maxwell Taylor "Max" Kennedy, Jr.

Following his parents' separation, it was reported in the media he was changing his surname to "Shriver." None of these reports is based on statements made by him but are based instead on speculation over why he used the screen name "Patrick Shriver" on his Twitter account. Shriver is his mother's surname, which is part of his full name: Patrick Arnold Shriver Schwarzenegger.[8][9] Schwarzenegger added Achilles as his Catholic confirmation name.[2][10]

Schwarzenegger graduated from Brentwood High School in 2012.[11] He's been studying at the University of Southern California since 2012.[12]
