Regarding his education, there are no details in the media. However, some years back, his mom once mentioned John’s college while she responded to the interviewer’s question about how hard it is for her to watch her children going out in the world. Michelle said,

Let me tell you; it is no laughing matter. It is really hard. Claudia’s in her first year of college. She’s doing great.

In her further explanation, she talked about John’s college and stated,

 My son is applying to colleges now. I remember reading an interview with Dustin Hoffman; his first child had just gone off to college, and he said, “Nobody talks about their [empty] room.” I feel like I’m going to cry just thinking about it.”

So, counting on this statement, John, in 2023, is studying in a college but sadly details about his college are behind the curtain.

Moving on to the brother-sister relationship, both of them are really close to each other. In one interview, their mom revealed that they have good bonding. She said,

“They’ve been close their whole lives, and they’re close in age. But don’t get me wrong: They have their moments of sibling conflict.”

The siblings, John and Claudia though have a beautiful bonding, but their interest area is completely in the opposite direction. In an exclusive talk with Good Housekeeping, their momma Pfeiffer talked about John’s early childhood days and his resemblance and difference with his sister. She stated,

“When [John and Claudia] were little, they couldn’t have been more different — John was into trucks and Claudia was into kitty cats, and he was eating bugs and she wasn’t.

On September 29, 2021, the Dangerous Liaisons actress shared her image with her both children and wrote some appreciative words for them. She wrote,

“I know, I’m late recognizing National Daughter & Son Day. John & Claudia. I love these two rascals. From the moment they were born they gave me and continue to give my life a depth of meaning beyond measure. 18 months apart. Best friends. Inseparable. “🙏❤️

Further, in one interview, she also stated that having kids in life helped a person to move out of negativity. She explained,

“Well, one thing that’s great about having kids, especially given my career, is that it forces you out of your narcissism. I mean, I’m in a career where my product is me. So it was nice to have something, someone, come along and take the focus off me. I really needed to give myself some distractions from myself.”

Seeing this, we can really say that John and his sister are really a source of inspiration for their mom and dad.
