After weeks of speculation, Mildred Baena, the mother of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s love child has spoken out.
The 50-year-old former Schwarzenegger housekeeper has revealed the moment Arnold’s wife Maria Shriver discovered the sordid secret she had kept for almost 14 years.
‘Maria did ask me directly if Joseph was Arnold’s son and I just broke down,’ Guatemala-born Mildred says in an interview with Hello! magazine. ‘I dropped to my knees and I was crying, saying that, yes, he was and I was so sorry.’
In her first interview Mildred reveals: ‘She was so strong. She cried with me and told me to get off my knees.
‘We held each other and I told her it wasn’t Arnold’s fault, that it takes two. That is what I admired about her, her strength and the way she handled it.’
The physical similarities between the youngster and his biological father had become too obvious to ignore, and Mildred says she thinks Maria heard whispers after people in the house noted the likeliness.
