According to a joint investigation, Mildred Patricia Baena was the mother of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s illegitimate child.
Baena (known as Patty), 50, worked as a housekeeper/assistant for the Schwarzenegger family. The child, now aged 13, was conceived without the knowledge of Maria Shriver, the wife of former bodybuilder.
“She’s the one,” a source confirmed. “They have a son together,” another insider added.
Baena worked for the family for 20 years. According to sources cited by TMZ, Patty began to “pursue” the actor in the late 1990s and he eventually succumbed to her advances. The two had sex in the family’s home without ever getting caught.
Initial reports said that the woman had retired in January. However, sources claim now that this information is false as she was fired by Schwarzenegger.
“Mildred did not retire… she was working for Arnold and Maria until about four weeks ago,” a source told RadarOnline.com. “But all of a sudden and out of nowhere, she was told there was no longer work for her.”
“Mildred was furious that the father of her 14-year-old son would callously fire her from her job after decades of loyal service,” one of Patty’s friends revealed. “She was angry that the father of her 14 year old son of the fired abruptly after years of loyal service.”
“She admitted to friends how she finally wanted to tell the secret — that she had kept faithfully for 14 years — to the world. It was a nuclear blow-up between her and Arnold,” added the informant.
It is unclear whether it was Baena’s desire to speak publicly about the child born of her affair with Schwarzenegger that urged him to confess everything.
Reports say that both Mildred Baena and Maria Shriver were pregnant with Arnold’s children at the same time. Patty’s son was born on October 2, 1997, while Maria welcomed their second son, Christopher, less than a week later, on September 27 that same year.
Latest documents that surfaced show that Patty listed her then-husband, Rogelio Baena, on the child’s birth certificate. Also, in her divorce petition, which was filed in February 2008, she stated that, “There are no minor children.”
In other words, she was admitting that someone else was the father.
In May, Shriver and Schwarzenegger announced their separation after 25 years of marriage. Schwarzenegger recently confirmed in a statement that he was the father of an illegitimate child. He apologized for what he did. His son was born before he came to the governorship of California.
