They say when it rains, it pours. In the case of former Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife of more than 25 years, Maria Shriver, that’s an understatement. While the public is fully aware of the governator’s infidelity and controversial, pending divorce, reports emerged this week that Christopher, the couple’s youngest son, is recovering from serious injuries he obtained after a boogie-boarding accident.
The accident took place in Malibu last week, but now that attention is back on Schwarzenegger as a result of a failed divorce filing, more people are learning about Christopher. Since July 17, the 13 year old had been in intensive care with multiple broken bones and a collapsed lung.
The governor addressed concerns on his Twitter account: “Thanks for all your support for Christopher. It means a lot to me and to him. He’s doing much better, and we’ll have him back at full speed soon.” Shriver, who has been largely thought the victim in this incredibly publicized separation, joined with her still-husband to release a joint statement about their son: “Christopher is surrounded by his family and friends. He is a brave boy and is expected to make a fully recovery.”
When a couple wants nothing more than to get away from one another, the children are always a tie that binds. In this case, differences are almost insurmountable between Schwarzenegger and Shriver, but they did raise four happy and thriving children. Let’s hope for Christopher’s sake that the injuries he sustained are, indeed, temporary setbacks to a long and prosperous future.
