Schwarzenegger thanks family, friends for support

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has made his first public appearance since the announcement that he and his wife of 25 years, Maria Shriver, had separated.

Speaking Tuesday night at a Los Angeles event marking Israeli independence, Schwarzenegger thanked friends and family for an outpouring of support.

He said he and Shriver "both love each other very much" and they "are taking one day at a time."

The two issued a joint statement Monday that they were living apart as they work on the future of their relationship and continue to parent their four children.

Schwarzenegger ended a seven-year term as California governor in January.
