The actor and former California Governor recently admitted having an illegitimate child with one of his former employees.
According to sources close to Shriver, the journalist has hired Laura Wasser, a California lawyer specializing in family law.
“Maria hasn’t decided yet if she wants to end her marriage,” source said. Wasser was hired before the Schwarzenegger’s adventure went public.
According to documents obtained by CNN, Arnold’s illegitimate was born less than a week after Shriver gave birth to their son.
Schwarzenegger has reportedly provided financial support for the child since 1997.
In June, Baena bought a home in Bakersfield, California. On Wednesday, the house was stormed by reporters and paparazzi. However, the woman hasn’t been seen there.
Schwarzenegger is going through hard times now. Sources say he would do anything to protect his wife and children.
