Who is Caroline Kennedy's Husband?
Caroline's husband is Edwin Schlossberg. She met him while she was working at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Edwin was a exhibit designer at the museum. The couple dated for five years before finally deciding to tie the knot.
The beautiful couple got married in 1986 at Our Lady of Victory Church in Centerville, Massachusetts. The couple had a 12 years age gap, which didn't seem to be a problem for them. However, she opted for taking his last name as Schlossberg.
Children's complete the family
The pair brought only three beautiful lives to this world through their union, unlike Bria Murphy's father, who had ten children. Their first child was born on June 25, 1998, as Rose Kennedy Schlossberg.
