American author and the elder daughter of actor/politician Arnold Schwarzenegger and broadcast journalist Maria Shriver. A member of the Kennedy family, Schwarzenegger is a grandniece of John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States.
She has a younger sister, Christina Schwarzenegger, and two younger brothers, Patrick and Christopher Schwarzenegger. Through her father, she also has a half-brother, Joseph Baena.
In 2010, Schwarzenegger wrote a book, Rock What You've Got: Secrets to Loving Your Inner and Outer Beauty from Someone Who's Been There and Back. Schwarzenegger uses the book to describe her personal journey and encourage other young women to achieve confidence and a positive self-image. She had body-image issues between fourth and seventh grade, but now controls her physical and mental health with walking exercises and yoga.
After graduating from college in 2012 and unsure of her next steps, Schwarzenegger sought career advice from a variety of people, including athletes, singers, entrepreneurs and actors. She compiled their wisdom into her second book, I Just Graduated . . . Now What? which was released in 2014 as a “survival guide” for recent college grads.
In 2017, Schwarzenegger authored a children’s book, Maverick and Me. The book tells the story of how Schwarzenegger rescued and subsequently adopted her dog, Maverick. Using her own experience as a “foster fail” (when a foster home turns into a “furever” home), the book touts the benefits of pet adoption and rescue.
Schwarzenegger is an ASPCA Ambassador and supports the Best Friends Animal Society.
On 13 January 2019, she became engaged to actor Chris Pratt. They married on 8 June 2019. They welcomed their first child, a daughter, in August 2020.
