Digital News Report – Former governor Arnold Schwarzenegger admitted that he had an affair with a house-keeper, Mildred ‘Patty’ Baena, and that relationship produced a child. His Wife, Maria Shriver, and his mistress were pregnant at the same time.
The Los Angeles Times broke the story on Monday. Harvey Levin, the producer of the TMZ celebrity gossip show, said that he had the story for a week but could not confirm it.
Earlier this month the couple said they were separating. On May 9th Shriver said she was moving out of their Brentwood mansion. Since then there are reports that she told friends that Arnold Fathered a son with their house-keeper.
After leaving Sacramento in January, Brena left their employment.
The “Terminator” star said that he has taken financial responsibility for his actions. The local KNX radio station reported Arnold bought a four-bedroom house with a pool about two hours north of Los Angeles in 2010 for Brena.
“I ask that the media respect my wife and children through this extremely difficult time,” said Schwarzenegger’s statement. “While I deserve your attention and criticism, my family does not.”
