She had gone to the laundry to get some cleaning done when she bumped into Charles who was also there to clean. They picked interest in each other immediately as they struck up a conversation. The pair started dating shortly after, hence making plans to tie the knot.

In 1974, two years after their first meeting, Robyn and Charles tied the knot in holy matrimony and remained married till Charles died of cancer in 2018. The couple loved themselves and pushed each other to do their best in their different careers. In fact, Charles has often talked lovingly about how his wife urged him to follow his calling and succeed at doing it. Robyn has also spoken glowingly about her husband’s help in pushing her career to sublime heights.

She Has A Son With Charles Krauthammer

The union between Charles Krauthammer and Robyn Krauthammer produced just one child, a boy whom they named Daniel Krauthammer. Both Robyn and Charles loved Daniel and made sure they gave him the best life. Daniel has grown into a fine young man who has taken after his father as a writer.
