Arnold Schwarzenegger and his housekeeper/mistress Mildred “Patty” Baena didn’t only deceive Maria Shriver. They also lied to the boy they conceived together. The boy, now aged 13 (he turns 14 this year), never knew that the actor and former Governor of California is his father.
Schwarzenneger’s former long-time housekeeper and mistress Baena hid the truth of his father’s identity from the boy. However, the actor turned politician often bought him gifts and even put a down payment on his family’s home. He also reportedly paid maintenance to Patty throughout his son’s life so far.
Neighbors of Patty and her son, in Bakersfield, California, said the boy refered to Baena’s current boyfriend as his dad. He had no idea of the truth.
Schwarzenneger’s estranged wife, Maria Shriver, doesn’t need any further humiliation on top of knowing her husband brought up a love child with their housekeeper, side by side with her own family. But still the hurt comes. The boy was born in October 1997, just five days after Christopher, Arnold’s youngest son with Shriver, was born. So Arnie had two women pregnant at the same time.
Shriver (55) split from Schwarzenegger (63) earlier this month after 25 years of marriage, when she confronted Arnold about the affair and love child, and he finally admitted the truth.
Shriver has since retained famed Los Angeles divorce attorney Laura Wasser, who has represented such celebrity clients as Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie,Ryan Reynolds, Christina Aguilera and Stevie Wonder.
So Arnold Schwarzenneger’s love child never knew the true identity of his father. But now that the story is everywhere, including photos of the boy, who bears a strong resemblance to his biological father, and Patty has gone into hiding with him, I’m guessing that has now changed for the innocent boy in the middle of all this.
