Arnold did not willingly admit to having an affair. He actually confessed when his estranged wife Maria confronted the mistress. hit the jump to read the rest of the story.


Arnold Schwarzenegger did not voluntarily tell his wife that he fathered a love child with the housekeeper — instead he confessed only after Maria Shriver confronted the woman, who admitted it.

Maria asked Mildred Baena if her son was fathered by Arnold and the housekeeper broke down and confessed, and Star magazine uncovered in a joint investigation.

Armed with that information, Maria confronted her husband, who also admitted it.

That’s the real story of how the love child scandal unfolded in the Schwarzenegger household.

In his only public statement about the matter, Arnold said earlier this week: “After leaving the governor’s office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago.”

Those carefully chosen words don’t begin to tell the story, and Star magazine discovered.

“Maria has suspected this for a long time and she asked the housekeeper,” a source close to the situation told us. “The housekeeper admitted it.

“Maria then went to Arnold and he confessed.” He didn’t volunteer the information, and it could have remained a secret if Maria hadn’t asked.
