It’s no longer a secret Arnold Schwarzenegger had quite the double life. Admitting he got a habit of keeping secrets, Arnold Schwarzenegger talked about his other son, the boy he fathered with the house maid 14 years ago.
Take the 60 minutes interview and his memoir and you’ve got yourself a celebrity with a huge number of secrets. Apart from the disturbing thought that Arnold Schwarzenegger was California’s governor while staying on these secrets, it’s amazing that the man kept his cool while hiding all these, including a son. On Sunday, Arnold Schwarzenegger talked about his other son, Joseph.
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s private life is mind-blowing. He told 60 Minutes this Sunday that it took him about seven or eight years before he figured out the maid’s son was actually his son. Apparently it wasn’t until the boy “started looking like me, that’s when I kind of got it. I put things together” Arnold Schwarzenegger confessed.
His affair with the house maid, Mildred Baena, began in 1996 and his wife, Maria Shriver, didn’t know about it until 2011. Only a few months later, after Maria Shriver asked Arnold Schwarzenegger if he was having an affair with the house maid, the two have split, filing for divorce.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mildred Baena have a child together. The former California governor kept his other son a secret from Maria Shriver for more than a decade. Throughout this time, Mildred Baena continued her work as the house maid, but Arnold Schwarzenegger quietly began giving her money and avoided revealing his secret to the rest of the family.
“It was very difficult, strange, bizarre” Arnold Schwarzenegger confessed about lying to his wife and four children for so much time. “I just said to myself, ‘Okay, I’m going to put this away” the former politician and successful actor confessed. “I asked them for forgiveness. They cried. It tears your heart out” he added.
Of his other son, Joseph, the only thing that Arnold Schwarzenegger added was that he wants everybody to know that the takes “care of him and I take care of her. And I fulfill my responsibility and I’m glad to do that”.
We’ve got just one question, this time for the guy that ran for governor of California against Arnold Schwarzenegger. How come your campaign team didn’t stumble upon this big bowl of secrets?!
