When the scandalous news broke that Arnold Schwarzenegger had cheated on wife Maria Shriver and had fathered a love child with a former member of their household staff, one person in the world was not shocked: actress Jane Seymour, 60, who told CNN Sunday night that she was "not even remotely surprised" by the revelations.
And that's not all. The former Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman star went on to drop a bombshell, claiming that the Governator may have additional love children with other women! "From what I gather, I think there will be lots of information coming people's way," she said. "I heard about two more (out of wedlock kids) somebody else knows about. I even met someone who knows him well." Seymour hastened to say that her main thought is with Arnold and Maria's children. "I feel sorry for the kids," she said.
Mildred Baena, the mother of Schwarzenegger's out-of-wedlock son, lived and worked in the Schwarzenegger home for 20 years. She retired in January, reportedly just before Schwarzenegger broke news of the love child to his wife, causing Shriver to move out of their home. The child had been born before Schwarzenegger began his stint as governor and is now believed to be 14 years old.
But what if there are more children?
Shriver, who calls the entire situation "painful and heartbreaking," has hired a high-profiled divorce attorney -- pretty much putting to rest the short-lived speculation that there might be a reconciliation.
While Schwarzenegger, 63, and Shriver, 55, do have a prenup, it could be rendered null and void in the wake of Schwarzenegger's clear breach of the marriage contract -- especially if more illegitimate children are revealed. If Shriver does decide to divorce her estranged husband, the New York Post claims their split could end up being one of the costliest celebrity divorces in history -- with Arnold potentially shelling out between $100 million and $200 million to Maria.
Whatever the case, Schwarzenegger and Shriver's daughter, Katherine, has taken to Twitter over the past week to plead for privacy. "This is only the business of my family and please respect that!" she wrote, retweeting a quote about forgiveness: "Holding grudges is bad for your health. Forgive and let go."
We'll see how much forgiveness can be expected if Seymour's claim turns out to be true.
