Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver‘s split has not stopped their family from sticking together.

The couple’s daughter Katherine, 26, recently sat down with PEOPLE and opened up about how the family has gotten along since her parents’ 2011 separation.

“We do everything together as a family,” Katherine said. “We’ve maintained very, very close relationships with every member of my entire family and my family has done a great job at keeping us all together, showing up for one another.”

Schwarzenegger and Shriver separated in 2011 after the former governor of California admitted to fathering a child with the family housekeeper 14 years earlier.

Yet Katherine, who has spoken before about her family’s tight relationship, said the breakup has had little effect on the family dynamic. “We are very, very close and love one another – and just because my parents aren’t necessarily together, doesn’t mean anything or affect our family in any other way.”

The separation has taught the author and lifestyle blogger to appreciate “healthy relationships,” a topic she said she often discusses with her mother. “I think being in a loving and healthy relationship is the greatest gift.”
