Went to opening night of Terminator last night and yes, I cried, but this time it was not out of fear that my dads face was going to stay bloody and metal (you can imagine me processing this at a young age 🤪), I cried this time because the movie is SO GOOD and I am SO proud of my dad! Go make weekend plans to see it!

Katherine is US royalty – the daughter of former American politician and actor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Maria Shriver, journalist and member of the Kennedy family. In fact, Maria introduced her to Chris in 2018, and now the couple have paid tribute to her by giving their daughter her name!

According to E! News, Katherine has said that her mother, Maria, “has been the greatest mom and continues to be the greatest mom.”

Katherine has previously told E! News that being pregnant during COVID has been ‘interesting’ but that she’s found ways to see the silver linings by being able to spend more time organising.

ET reported that according to a source, “The couple is so excited for their new addition and have been showered with love from their family and friends … Chris was there for the birth and the couple can’t stop taking their eyes off their daughter. Katherine and Chris are doing well and Katherine is enjoying the experience of being a first time mother.”
