Schwarzenegger’s Babymama Mildred Baena Talks For The First Time


Almost a month after the world learned about Arnold Schwarzenegger’s out-of-wedlock child, Mildred Baena, the housekeeper who gave birth to the kid after a long affair with the future California governor, has finally given an interview. Turns out that part of the reason it took so long for word of the kid to come out is that his parents never really talked about it themselves. “It was as [son] Joseph grew and I started to see the resemblance that I wondered—but it became more apparent as time went on,” she tells Hello! “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.”

Unsurprisingly, it was Arnold’s wife Maria Shriver who pushed the subject. “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. 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.” While Shriver was reportedly angry enough to want to reveal the child’s existence in a press conference, Baena sounds hopeful they’ll reconcile. “He’s a good man and I know he’s suffering too. He loves Maria. I hope with time they work things out.” Even if they don’t, one person seems comfortable with the situation. When told who he his real father was, 13-year-old Joseph reportedly told his mom, “Cool!”
