Arnold and Maria Shiver

Arnold Schwarzenegger has spoken out for the first time since he and Maria
Shriver announced their separation.
"I just talked to Maria an hour ago before I came here and we both were saying
the same thing we are amazed to be extremely blessed to be surrounded by so many
wonderful people and so many wonderful friends," Schwarzenegger said at the 63rd
Israel Independence Day Celebration at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los
Angeles on Tuesday night.
"We both love each other very much," the actor and former Governor of California
continued. "We are very fortunate that we have four extraordinary children and
we're taking one day at a time."
Adding, "But the bottom line is I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank
you to all the people for their great, great support."
On Monday, after 25 years together, Schwarzenegger, 63, and Shriver, 55,
announced their split in a joint statement saying that this is "a time of great
personal and professional transition."
"After a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion, and prayer, we came to
this decision together," the statement continued. "At this time, we are living
apart, while we work on the future of our relationship. We are continuing to
parent our four children together. They are the light and the center of both of
our lives."
On Tuesday, the couple's daughter, Katherine Tweeted, "Just wanted to thank
everyone for the sweet comments and ur concern and love in this changing time!
It means a lot!"
Their son, Patrick also Tweeted on Tuesday, writing, "Appreciate all your
messages. Small speed bump in life, luckily we own hummers, we will cruise right
over it. All will be okay. #peace"
