Maria Shriver was reportedly "shaken horribly" when a July 17 body-boarding accident left her 13-year-old son Christopher Schwarzenegger hospitalized with a collapsed lung, broken bones and broken ribs. But today, Shriver -- who recently filed for divorce from Christopher's dad, Arnold Schwarzenegger -- is in much better spirits because her son is back at home and on the mend.
"Blessed to be able to take Christopher out of the hospital last night," Shriver, 55, tweeted Tuesday. "What a feeling of relief to know that he's going to be fine. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. The whole family, especially Christopher, felt your love."
Arnold, 63, also chimed in over Twitter. "Thanks for all your support for Christopher," he wrote Monday night. "It means a lot to me & to him. He's doing much better & we'll have him back at full speed soon." On Tuesday, he added: "I knew Christopher couldn't be stopped! Big thanks to all the doctors, nurses & staff at UCLA that helped him recover."
Shriver had reportedly been at Christopher's bedside throughout his recovery, even sleeping at the hospital. And despite their impending divorce, following the revelation that Arnold had fathered a child with the family housekeeper, she and her estranged husband have been able to put aside their differences for Christopher's sake. "Arnold is a great father," an insider told People. "And he and Maria will always come together when it comes to supporting and loving their children."
Arnold may be the action hero in the family, but with the strength Shriver has shown these past few months, we're thinking she could give him a run for his money!
