Arnold Schwarzenegger shares immense regret for breaking his marriage

Back in 1996, the affair between Arnold Schwarzenegger and housekeeper Mildred Baena allegedly took place when his family was on vacation, with the actor left at home due to the shooting of a movie. Following this, the actor shared a son with the housekeeper, and the affair was kept low until 2011, when things eventually came to light, leading to his wife Maria Shriver parting ways with the actor. And with the Netflix docuseries set to deep dive into this situation, Schwarzenegger has been vocal about his regrets regarding the situation and admitted that he was in the wrong. He said,

“It was very hard on my marriage and on my relationship with my children. I have caused pain to my family. I’m going to have to live with that for the rest of my life.”

But despite being the reason behind the failure of his 25-year-old marriage, the actor hasn’t let this situation negatively impact his children, including his son with Mildred Baena, Joseph Baena.
