Arnold Shwarzenegger, Maria Shriver & Mildred Patricia Baena

Arnold Shwarzenegger, Maria Shriver & Mildred Patricia Baena

The whole world just basically watched with mouths agape earlier this week as the Governator himself, Arnold Shwarzenegger, held a press conference and admitted to fathering a child out of wedlock while he was married to Maria Shriver. The story only got ickier when news broke that the other woman was a housekeeper named Mildred Particia Baena and that she worked for the family for 20 years, all the while keeping this bombshell secret to herself. In fact, she was pregnant with her baby boy at the same exact time the Ahnold's wife, Maria Shriver, was pregnant with their youngest son and the boys were born just five days apart. Maria has since announced that she would be divorcing Shwarzenegger post-haste. Baena has been unwavering in her support of the Governator and has kept mum about the affair all week.

About this author

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
