Schwarzenegger Fathered Child With Housekeeper

Arnold Schwarzenegger admitted that he fathered a child with a longtime member of his household staff over a decade ago (before his first run for office).

“After leaving the governor’s office I told my wife [Maria Shriver] about this event, which occurred over a decade ago,” Arnold told the Los Angeles Times. “I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry.”

“I ask that the media respect my wife and children through this extremely difficult time,” the statement continued. “While I deserve your attention and criticism, my family does not. ”

Maria, 55, announced her split from Arnold, 63, earlier this month after nearly 25 years of marriage. They have four children together, Katherine, Christina, Patrick, and Christopher.
