Katherine Eunice Schwarzenegger[1] (born December 13, 1989)[1] is an American author.

Early life

Schwarzenegger was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. She is the oldest child of actor and politician Arnold Schwarzenegger (who is Austrian), and journalist and author Maria Shriver (of Irish and German descent), whose mother Eunice is from the Kennedy family.[2] She has a younger sister, Christina Schwarzenegger,[3] and two younger brothers, Patrick[4] and Christopher Schwarzenegger.[5] Through her father, she also has a half-brother, Joseph Baena.[6][7]

In May 2012, Schwarzenegger graduated with a communication degree from the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern California. Her mother delivered the commencement address for the satellite ceremony for the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism.[8][9]


In 2010, Schwarzenegger wrote a book entitled Rock What You've Got: Secrets to Loving Your Inner and Outer Beauty from Someone Who's Been There and Back.[10] Schwarzenegger uses the book to describe her personal journey and encourage other young women to achieve confidence and a positive self-image.[11] She had body-image issues between fourth and seventh grade, but now controls her physical and mental health with walking exercises and yoga.[12]
