Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Divorce: Family Life Explained.

The Arnold Schwarzenegger Affair.

The world-class bodybuilder, who turned to acting and eventually a political career, had a “perfect” family. However, just days after Schwarzenegger and Shriver announced their separation, it was revealed that he had had a child with Mildred Baena, who had been the family’s housekeeper for more than 20 years.

Interestingly, the actor’s wife had learned of the matter months before it became public information and had confronted him in a couples therapy session.

In his memoirs of 2012, Total Recall: My incredibly true life story, Schwarzenegger explained that his wife had asked him during their routine session on January 4, 2011.

“As we sat down, the therapist turned to me and said, ‘Maria wanted to come here today and ask about a child, did you father a child with your housekeeper Mildred,'” he wrote. “I told the therapist, ‘It’s true.’

Baena, now 60, was married to Rogelio Baena and claims that she believed Joseph was her son for many years. The couple divorced three years after Joseph’s birth.

She, along with Shriver and Schwarzenegger, began to notice striking similarities between Joseph and his real father as he began to grow up.

Finally, Shriver confronted Baena and asked if she had been having an affair.

“She would say things like, ‘I’m here if you need to talk.’ I felt like something was up. I have a lot of love and respect for Maria,” Baena said. Hello! Magazine in 2011. “Finally, he asked point blank.”

“She was so strong. She cried with me and told me not to kneel. We hugged and I told her it wasn’t Arnie’s fault. It takes two.”
