An insider tells HollywoodLife.com Maria Shriver joked for years that her housekeeper’s son looked exactly like Arnold Schwarzenegger — but never thought anything of it!
They say your first instinct is usually your best instinct, which means Maria Shriver should have realized her husband, Arnold Schwarzenegger, had a child with their housekeeper, Mildred Baena. An insider tells us Maria always thought Mildred’s son bore a striking resemblance to Arnold — can you believe it?
“Maria, the family and even other members of the staff joked around from time to time that Mildred’s kid looked like Arnold,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
“Looking back on those jokes now…it’s like, hindsight is always 20/20,” the insider explains, adding, “It was if it was so obvious they looked alike, that it was just a coincidence and something to be joked about.”
Arnold, 63, and Maria, 55, broke off their 25-year-marriage after the former California governor went public with his infidelity and love child. Less than a week later, his mistress was identified as their long-time housekeeper, with whom Arnold fathered a son, who is now 14-years-old.
According to our source, Arnold’s love child is “super nice and well-behaved. He is a joy to be around.”
We feel horribly for Maria AND Arnold’s illegitimate child. Neither of them asked for this to happen! Do you think Maria should have suspected what had happened before she did? How would YOU handle this situation? Sound off below!
