Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday his daughter Cara is leaving for Harvard University and her twin Mariah is leaving for Brown University this week.
Cuomo's third daughter with Kerry Kennedy is younger and attends a private school in New England.
Cuomo says he's a desperate father trying to cling to the last days before his daughters "leave the nest."
Cuomo was divorced from Kennedy in 2003. She's the daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy and a Brown graduate.
The governor attended Fordham University and Albany Law School, both in New York.
