Poor Maria and her four kids! Arnold reportedly had unprotected sex with their housekeeper in the family mansion when Maria wasn’t home — and he fathered a 14-year-old son from the affair!
Arnold Schwarzenegger, 63, has been living a lie. The former Governor of California and his wife Maria Shriver, 55, split last week after 25 years of marriage and reports of Arnold’s infidelity. Just one week later the identity of the household staff member, Mildred Patricia Baene, 50, who had an affair for more than two decades with Arnold and gave birth to his now 14-year-old love child was revealed and they had a torrid affair right under Maria’s nose!
Mildred worked for the family for 20 years before “retiring” this past January. But did she really leave on “good terms”? RadarOnline.com reports that Mildred was working for the Schwarzenegger’s up until four weeks ago, and she was actually fired by Arnold after she threatened to go public with their scandalous affair.
TMZ reports that Mildred aka “Patty” began to “pursue Arnold” in the late 90s. She would allegedly tell her friends that she would have unprotected sex in the middle of the day with Arnold at the Schwarzenegger home when Maria wasn’t there — and they were never caught.
It turns out Maria and Mildred came in contact on the the family grounds almost daily and that her 14-year-old son would frequent the house as well. But Maria thought the son belonged to Mildred’s ex-husband. HollywoodLife.com has seen pictures of Arnold’s son with Mildred and he does bear a resemblance to Arnold and his two sons with Maria, Patrick, 17, and Christoper, 13.
Reports claim that Arnold fired Mildred in an attempt to “save his marriage.” But Maria has since moved out of their Brentwood mansion and into a hotel. She appeared in Chicago on May 17 despite the scandal unraveling in front of the world. Maria was there to support longtime friend Oprah Winfrey and tape the second-to-last episode of her Oprah Winfrey Show.
Two of Maria and Arnold’s four children took to their Twitter to address the devastating reports and express their sadness and eagerness to move forward.
Maria and Arnold met in 1977, and were introduced by NBC’s Tom Brokaw at a charity tennis tournament, and were married in 1986. Together they have four children: Katherine Eunice, 21, Christina Maria Aurelia, 18, Patrick Arnold, 17, Christopher Sargent, 13.
