Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s kids are banding together to support their mother during this difficult time. Unfortunately the couple’s four children are old enough to understand what’s going on, and this makes things even harder. When children are little, it’s easy because nothing has to be explained and they don’t really know what’s going on. With Maria and Arnold’s kids, it’s a-whole-nother story. However, these kids seem very smart, and they are all there for each other now more than ever.
“The kids are all banding together to support their mom right now and they’re doing their best to stay out of the spotlight. It’s tense because the kids need a sounding board just as much as Maria does but it’s difficult to go to their mom for questions in a time like this. Everyone feels really betrayed and embarrassed that it’s out in the open. Not for their dad’s sake but for Maria,” says a source.
In a way it’s good that the kids are able to support their mother, but it must be so hard. How can you even look at your father the same way again? It’s like their lives have now changed forever and they are all left picking up the pieces. Arnold was very selfish when he chose to have affairs. Not only did he betray his wife, but his children, and it’s absolutely heartbreaking.
