The actor-turned-politician has made tabloid headlines multiple times for his Casanova image and tales of sexual misconduct. Among these many stories, six women came forward and recited their part of the story.
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 25-year marriage to two-time Governor of California Maria Shriver was torn apart in 2011 when it was discovered that Arnold had fathered a love child with his mistress governess Mildred Patricia ‘Patty’ Baena there over fourteen years old.
Mildred Baena had worked in the Schwarzenegger household for two decades and retired in 2011. Baena was discovered to be pregnant with Arnold’s son at the same time Maria was pregnant with Arnold’s youngest child. In fact, both deliveries took place in the same week. Shirver gave birth on September 27, and Baena gave birth to Arnold’s illegitimate son, Joseph, on October 2, 1997.
Falling helpless before his paternal love for the child, Arnold searched for reasons and chances to spend time with Joseph, his and Baena’s love child. In an unforeseen event, Arnold’s children and wife attended Joseph’s christening ceremony.
Additionally, Arnold’s moments he spent playing with his child and teaching him golf were captured on film. However, the child never found out that Arnold was his child until the beans were spilled by the media.
Baena and her son received financial assistance from Arnold. It was also reported that Arnold provided Baena and her son with a four-bedroom home in Los Angeles in 2010. Baena also separated from her husband after Joseph’s birth and filed for divorce in 2008.
After this scandal was made public by the media, actress Brigitte Nielsen also came forward and claimed that she even had an affair with Schwarzenegger while Marai and Arnold were dating.
