Spouses Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, Kennedy's very little resemblance to each other. He - the hero of militants and she - a serious political TV observer, the girl most sophisticated education, a member of the "American royalty". Her name is preceded by a very impressive "titles" (or "comma," as she calls them): the niece of John F. Kennedy, sister of John F. Kennedy Jr. ... And yet this marriage has been thirteen years is a model of prosperity for all windy Hollywood ...
California's Pacific coast. Sunset. Maria Shriver, sitting on a white sofa on the terrace of his house, posing for the last for this day Camera capture. Filming is suddenly interrupted - on the sofa, under the side of Mary, climb year-old boy, and after him - year-old girl holding a baby ... And the baby - a miniature copy of Arnold Schwarzenegger - once adopted a desperate cry. "It's always, - complains Maria, - perhaps with porabotaeshN!" Somehow reassuring Christopher, having had Christine and Patrick return to the house and sent a photographer, Maria had already prepared to answer questions ... But nine years Catherine brought mother a notebook, so that she checked the puzzle in mathematics ...
. - Mary, do you yourself do with detmiN not it easier to hire uchitelyaN was
. - Actually, I offered to take Catherine for teachers, because just in mathematics, I am not strong
. But Arnie said: "UchitelN! But never in my life!" Nobody will give our children a better education than we do. And if you have problems with math - then you go to the teacher. And then she'll teach and Catherine, and all the rest ...
- So your husband - diktatorN
- Is that a tiny little bit ... He simply does not allow me to be lazy ... A deal with children and I very very much! While this is certainly not easy. In fact, I had no idea what that work - to be a mother. That motherhood has given me a sense of pride that I - a woman. I'm grew up surrounded by four brothers, and, of course, in childhood was sorry that I had not a boy ... Then it passed, but really I realized what being a woman just gave birth to children ...
- What is involved in the upbringing of children ArnoldN
- He brings them mostly in the mornings. Wakes six hours (with the exception of Christopher, of course). Then he rides on the football field, and after forcing pour cold water ... In short, he is "responsible" for their physical development. And I - for the spiritual. Here they, too, the poor, have hard times. For example, on Sundays, when you want to go to church, Patrick always whining: "I do not want to go to church, do not go!" I do not want to wear this tight dress ". Then I said to him: "You have no choice, baby" ...
- And what is the main principle you laid the foundation of your education sistemyN
- Our children are half-Irish-Catholic, half the Austrians - in short, Americans. And I want them to be well aware of their roots. Although more importantly - learn to think of myself as an individual. Even if they do something that does not lead me into ecstasy, I try to respect their actions. And Arnold, too. Although it just infuriates Patrick's passion for "female" work at home - for the harvest and brew. However, with the same pleasure with his father Patrick is building a toy wooden windmills. In short, each of my children something remarkable. And this - the most important. Believe me, I know what I mean! I well remember as a child went for a walk with two dozen relatives and cousins and passers-by said: "Wow, that's going Kennedy. And you - which of nihN "And people never even knew they could not distinguish us, and no wonder: the same head of hair, same smile ... And I was very upset that I was perceived only as "one of those Kennedy."
Now Maria is not very similar to nц?e Kennedy. What are her diamonds glittering in the rays of the setting sun: a platinum ring "Heart" on ring finger of his left hand), another - on the right, watch the dial and bracelet, just sprinkled with diamonds on her neck - a diamond necklace ... No one else from her family decided not to be so flagrantly "violating rules", which required restraint and modesty ...

Maria worked day and night at a television studio in California (five thousand kilometers from the "descent" in Washington). Eventually she managed to become the leading newsmaker, first at C-PBS, and then to NBC-si. Fidel Castro and Colonel Gaddafi melted under her radiant and stare, members of Congress willing to share state secrets in front of microphones, tightly compressed in its subtle and strong hand. Kennedy family had to accept the status of Mary, but then she presented them a new surprise - a novel, and then the marriage either with the actors, whether from an athlete, an immigrant with a monstrous accent, but also a member of the "hostile" the Republican Party!
