Mildred Baena and her 13-year-old son by Arnold Schwarzenegger sat down with Hello magazine to spill details and take photos. Baena says as the boy got older, and came to resemble his father more, there were more whispers around the Schwarzenegger household.
“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.”
She also revealed that Marie Shriver, Arnold’s now ex-wife, had started to put two and two together when she heard whispers in the household about the pair's similarity.
“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 it was Maria’s actions that 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.”
No word on
whether how much Hello paid to get the "world exclusive." The edition of Hello is sure to get a lot of readers, but not necessarily because of the former Schwarzenegger housekeeper. The cover features Kate Middleton in three different looks.
