Mildred Baena Speaks Out About Son With Arnold Schwarzenegger

It was just weeks ago that news of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s secret son first grabbed headlines, and now the boy’s mother is speaking out for the first time.
Mildred Baena, the longtime housekeeper of Arnold and his wife Maria Shriver and their family, tells Hello! that over time her son Joseph’s resemblance to the former California governor left little doubt as to his paternity.

“It was as Joseph grew and I started to see the resemblance that I wondered – but it became more apparent as time went on,” she says. “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, now 13, only learned that Arnold is his father a year ago. His reaction to the shocking news? “Cool!”

Mildred says that Joseph is looking forward to developing a closer relationship with his biological dad.
She also shares how Arnold’s now ex-wife Maria reacted to the secret, revealing that she became suspicious after hearing “whispers” among the household staff.
“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.”
Despite Arnold and Maria’s split, Mildred says she hopes there’s still a chance for them: “He’s a good man and I know he’s suffering too. He loves Maria. I hope with time they work things out.”

    He doesn’t look that much like Arnold. A DNA test should be done.

    That is an awkward picture. His head is too small for his body or something…looks photoshopped….or something. Just kinda weird.

    Are you guys kidding? Have you seen pictures of young Arnold Schwarzenegger? This boy looks a lot like him. No doubt he’s his son.

    Wonder what she’ll tell him – “gee I slept with a married father of 4 and got knocked up and had you”. Real classy.

    He looks like his mom, but he also looks more like Arnold than his other kids IMO. I think they must know what they’re saying… Maybe she didn’t have intercourse with another man at the time. And why would she lie about it?

    I agree that she looks awful on that pic (not that I found her attractive in any pic she’s in!)

    If she really had so much love and respect for Maria, this wouldn’t have happened. And same goes for “Arnie.”

    As for the resemblance, he looks like his mom, but he does have his eyes.

    I don’t think he looks so much like Arnold like she is claiming he does however I could see how the cat got out of the bag because if you were to put Joseph next to Christopher Scharzenegger it might get you thinking and this is only one picture of Joseph. I feel bad for all the kids and Maria Shriver

    To Solene: Did you really say “why would she lie about it?”
    One good reason to lie is he’s rich. No different then, when people say I slept with so and so and cause a huge stir. They’re rich. Lets make a quick buck. How much do you think Mildred is making just telling her story? Money money money.

    Where is Maury when you need him? I hope that the children especially two young boys who are 13, will get help to deal with their emotional injury from this scandal and finding out that their parents are liars and cheaters!

    I want to apologize to everyone for your ignorance and intolerance.

    This woman may not be attractive to your standards, but you may not be attractive to someone else’s standard of beauty either!!

    No one know s why Arnold had this lapse in judgment. I doubt it was because she was Latina, Asian, Indian, Middle Eastern, Black or White! He did a stupid thing! Period!

    How many stupid things have you done in your life that you’re not proud of. The difference between you and Arnold is tha EVERYBODY knows him and NOBODY knows you….”Anonymous”.

    None of us have arrived. When you make comments and judgments about other peoples mistakes, you leave no room in your own life to make mistakes!! A dirty rag can’t clean another dirty rag!!

    You have a lot to learn about tolerance, kindness, acceptance and forgiveness. ~ Praying for you!
