Since his passing, the web has been buzzing with searches for Ted Kennedy Jr., and Kara Kennedy Allen. While there is not a great deal of information available about Kara Kennedy, here’s what we’ve got:

Kara Kennedy Allen Biography

Kara Kennedy was born Kara Ann Kennedy in February of 1960 in Rockville, Maryland. She is Senator Ted Kennedy’s only daughter. Kara appears to have inherited her father’s fighting spirit, as she herself struggled with cancer, but recovered after successful treatment.

She married Michael Allen in September of 1990 in Centerville, Massachusetts. They have two children together, Max Greathouse Allen, 13, and Grace Kennedy Allen, 15.

Kara Kennedy occupies herself as a television news producer, but spends a great deal of time doing charity work.
