Arnold Schwarzenegger's Love Child Revealed

For 25 years, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver were a power couple. That all changed in an instant, when the former governor of California admitted that he'd fathered a child with the family's longtime housekeeper thirteen years earlier. "Maria asked me directly if Joseph was Arnold's son, and I just broke down," the boy's mother, Mildred Baena, told Hello! in June. "I dropped to my knees and I was crying, saying that yes he was and I was so sorry." Shriver quietly filed for divorce as other alleged mistresses came forward, including Schwarzenegger's former costar Brigitte Nielsen. "I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family," Scharzenegger said in a statement. "There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused."
