HOLLYWOOD star Arnold Schwarzenegger recently revealed in an interview about the time he told his wife that he had an extramarital affair. The Terminator star also reflected upon the moment he told his wife about having a child with their housekeeper and said that she was “crushed” on hearing the news.
The actor will be a part of Netflix docuseries, Arnold, where he opened up about his illustrious career in Hollywood, his time as the governor of California and his personal life that was in the limelight for various reasons. As part of the series, the actor recalled telling his wife, Maria Shriver about having an affair with their housekeeper Mildred Baena. The two also have a son, Joseph Baena, who is now 25 years old.
Recalling the time he confessed his affair, Arnold said, “Maria and I went to counseling once a week and in one of the sessions the counselor said, ‘I think today Maria wants to be very specific about something. She wants to know if you are the father of Joseph.’ And I was like, I thought my heart stopped, and then I told the truth.”
The actor added that he spoke the truth which left her crushed. “Yes, Maria, Joseph is my son,” Arnold told his wife. “She was crushed because of that. I had an affair in ’96. In the beginning I really didn’t know. I just started feeling the older he got the more it became clear to me and then it was really just a matter of how do you keep this quiet? How do you keep this a secret?”
The actor went on to add how his actions made everyone in his family, including Joseph suffer. “I think that I have caused enough pain for my family because of my f— up. Everyone had to suffer. Maria had to suffer. The kids had to suffer. Joseph. His mother. Everyone,” the actor said in the series.
Arnold Schwarzenegger married Maria Shriver in 1986. The two share four children: Katherine, Christina, Patrick and Christopher.
