UPDATE: The Latina Behind the Arnold Schwarzenegger Sex Scandal


The mother of Arnold Schwarzenegger's illegitimate love child has been revealed. 50-year-old Mildred Patricia Baena (who identifies herself as Latina on a social network) worked for the Schwarzenegger family for 20 years and was pregnant with Arnold's son at the same time Maria Shriver was pregnant with their youngest son. Shockingly, the boys were born just 5 days apart.

Mildred, also known as Patty, began working as a housekeeper and assistant for the family in 1991 and told sources that the reason she stayed was because she wanted to put in her 20 years in order to be able to retire with severance. Baena was also married at the time, but she divorced her husband, Rogelio de Jesus Baena, in 2008. E!Online is reporting that she separated from Baena just 21 days after her son with Arnold was born and that Baena, not Schwarzenegger, is listed as the father on the birth certificate. She has three other children.

"I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family," Schwarzenegger said on Tuesday when he finally admitted to press that he had fathered a child out of wedlock."There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry."

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.
