Arnold Schwarzenegger's Mistress Of 14 Years Gets Candid About Their Affair And Secret Child

Date January 28, 2019

Arnold Schwarzenegger's life seemed like a true fairytale. He went from living in a small Austrian village to becoming a Hollywood A-list star. When he married gorgeous Maria Schriver, who became the mother of the couple’s four kids, it looked like Arnold’s life is picture perfect.

However, the action hero had been bearing a dirty secret. And all secrets always come to surface. Schwarzenegger’s life fell apart as the word discovered that the actor had been having an affair with his housekeeper, Mildred Baena, for 14 years.

Moreover, his wife and mistress got pregnant around the same time and gave birth less than a month apart. Baena had never talked about her affair with Hollywood royalty until she felt it’s time people learn the truth about Arnold's secret child.

The housekeeper’s tale

Mildred Baena had a candid interview with HELLO! where she talked about the affair that changed her life. When her son, Joseph, was born, she didn’t say a single word to his biological father.

She commented:

I knew Arnold was the father, and maybe as Joseph got older and began to look like him, he [Arnold] wondered. But he never said anything to me.

Joseph and his mother continued to live with Arnold’s family and the older the boy got, the more he started to resemble Arnold. Even though the actor didn’t notice anything himself, there was someone else who realized the truth before him and it was Schwarzenegger’s wife, Maria Schriver.

Baena recalls:

She would say things like, “I’m here if you need to talk.” I sensed something was up. I have so much love and respect for Maria. Finally, she asked point blank.

But Maria’s reaction to the truth completely shocked Mildred:

She was so strong. She cried with me and told me to get off my knees. We held each other and I told her it wasn’t Arnie’s fault, that it takes two.

That conversation put an end to Schriver and Schwarzenegger’s marriage. Arnie opened up publically about his affair, saying that he still loves his wife and hopes that she will one day forgive him. But she didn’t. Maria left Arnold for good.

Meantime, Joseph Baena has grown up and looks strikingly like his father, who invited him into his family and has been supporting him ever since.
