Arnold Schwarzenegger Breaks Silence About Split From Maria Shriver

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver shocked the world on Monday when they announced they were separating after 25 years.

Just one day later we learned that they've been living separate lives for years and Maria has been absolutely miserable. But just because they're celebrities doesn't mean the split is any easier on them.

Arnold spoke out for the first time about the split yesterday confessing they're both taking it "one day at a time."

Speaking at the 63rd Israel Independence Day Celebration in Los Angeles last night, he said: “We both love each other very much. And we're taking it one day at a time. The bottom line is we want to thank all the people for their great, great support.

"I just spoke to Maria an hour ago before I came here. We both were saying the same thing - we're extremely blessed to be surrounded by so many wonderful people, by so many wonderful friends."

Maria stopped wearing her wedding ring back in March and Arnold was spotting biking with his son on Tuesday sans wedding ring. They haven't announced their plans to divorce, but considering the fact that she's been living at the Beverly Hills hotel for months, it looks like they're headed for the big D.

Meanwhile, their son Patrick has since taken to his twitter page to discuss the separation, but is hopeful his parents will work through their problems.
He tweeted: "Appreciate all your messages. Small speed bump I'n life, luckily we own hummers, we will cruise right over it. All will be okay. #peace (sic)"

You think these two will patch things up? Arnold's ego is going to be busy for the next year or so working on three different movies and hopefully not making headlines for groping PA's.
