Maria Shriver's four kids with Arnold Schwarzenegger are growing up fast, and the NBC news correspondent knows that she'll soon be facing an empty nest.
"I think that if you're awake in your life, you fear being alone," the 58-year-old says in the December/January issue of AARP The Magazine. "But if you face that fear, realizing that ultimately we all come in alone and will end up alone, you enjoy your alone company."
Shriver, who split with her husband of 25 years in 2011, after learning that he'd fathered a child with the family's longtime housekeeper, comes from a big family and admits she's "not a big fan of living alone."

Arnold Schwarzenegger says it took seven or eight years before he found out that he had fathered a child with his housekeeper.
It wasn't until the boy "started looking like me, that's when I kind of got it. I put things together," the action star and former California governor, 65, told 60 Minutes on Sunday.
Though Mildred Baena continued working in the family household and Schwarzenegger quietly began to provide financial support to her and their son Joseph, Schwarzenegger deliberately delayed revealing his secret to his wife Maria Shriver and their four children.
"It was very difficult, strange, bizarre," said Schwarzenegger. "I just said to myself, 'Okay, I'm going to put this away.' "

Arnold Schwarzenegger says his affair with his family's housekeeper wasn't the first time he cheated on Maria Shriver.
The action star and former California governor admits in his new autobiography to a "hot affair" with actress Brigitte Nielsen while they filmed Red Sonja in 1985 when he and Shriver were living together, Time magazine reports.
Schwarzenegger, now 65, never thought the relationship with Nielsen was serious and that the fling only convinced him to marry Shriver, he writes in Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story, according to Time.

Opening up for the first time since his marriage collapsed with the revelation that he fathered a child with a housekeeper, Arnold Schwarzenegger acknowledges how badly he hurt wife Maria Shriver and their family.
Promoting his upcoming book on Sunday night's 60 Minutes on CBS, the action star was asked by correspondent Lesley Sthal, "Was this just the most unbelievable act of betrayal to Maria?"
"I think it was the stupidest thing I've done in the whole relationship," Schwarzenegger, 65, replies. "It was terrible. I inflicted tremendous pain on Maria and unbelievable pain on the kids."
