Patrick Schwarzenegger is engaged to longtime love Abby Champion.

The eldest son of exes Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver officially announced his engagement in December 2023, after more than eight years with Champion.

“💍❤️FOREVER AND EVER ❤️💍,” the duo captioned a joint Instagram post at the time, sharing photos from the romantic proposal. Schwarzenegger got down on one knee on a beach, surrounded by rose petals.

“She said yes,” Schwarzenegger wrote via his Instagram Story after the proposal news broke, posting a throwback photo with Champion. “9 years ago. Two little kiddos falling in love.”

While Schwarzenegger and Champion started dating in 2015, Us Weekly didn’t confirm the news of their relationship until the following year. A source confirmed to Us in March 2016 that the couple had been together for “a while.”

They were first spotted together at West Hollywood hotspot The Nice Guy. Champion also attended a bash for Schwarzenegger’s mom during the early days of their relationship.

“I think we stay in touch obviously through FaceTime and calls … but it’s really not hard,” Schwarzenegger told E! News in September 2019 of their busy schedules. “Being away from each other so often allows us to appreciate the time that we have together and really enjoy it. I’m usually so slammed in the week with work and she’s usually traveling, so it allows us both to have super fun weekends.”

While talking to the same outlet about his relationship years later, Schwarzenegger still had amazing things to say about his other half.

“She’s such a good girl,” the actor told E! in November 2022. “She’s a hard worker, dedicated, determined. She moved here from Alabama to pursue her dreams to become a supermodel. She’s great.”
