Arnold Schwarzenegger is a bonafide Hollywood superstar who has carved a niche for himself over 5 decades starting with his debut film Hercules in 1970. From multiple Mr. Universe titles to becoming a hugely popular action star, the True Lies actor has seen his fair share of success. Schwarzenegger added another feather to his cap with his entry into politics by becoming the Governor of California.
But with great highs also come lows. The multiple Mr. Universe winner was involved in many secret affairs with various women including co-stars while he was married to his wife Maria Shriver. The actor who also had a history of inappropriate behavior was called out by many women over the years for the same. Possibly the most scandalous revelation involved his housekeeper Mildred Baena which ultimately led to the collapse of his marriage.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Had A Love Child With HouseKeeper
Among the many controversial incidents involving action star Arnold Schwarzenegger, his affair with his housekeeper of 20 years Mildred Baena remains one of the most shocking revelations. According to sources, the affair took place in 1996 while the star’s family was on vacation and he had stayed behind owing to a prior film commitment. The secret liason did not end there as Baena gave birth to a child Joseph Baena just days after Maria Shriver delivered her son Christopher to Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The affair was kept under wraps until 2011 when the Los Angeles Times first uncovered the story. With Arnold Schwarzenegger’s dirty linen aired in public, his love child Joseph Baena’s identity and his relationship with the Terminator actor were further confirmed by the star himself when he decided to address the affair rumors surrounding his marriage to Maria Shriver. Mildred Baena ultimately retired on allegedly good terms and was given a “severance” payment as compensation. She is now a culinary-school graduate and a chef.
Joseph Baena Looks Up To His Father Arnold Schwarzenegger
With the shocking revelation that Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered a love child with his housekeeper, speculation was rife about who and where his son Joseph Baena was. Baena is now a model and a fitness enthusiast like his father and enjoys being in the public eye. He worked in real estate in West LA and Silicon Beach but soon after moved towards an acting career in Hollywood. Baena had words of praise for his father when speaking to Men’s Health.
“My father really inspires me.He kind of created the ideal physique for most people.”
Though the young actor who shares a startling resemblance to Schwarzenegger praised his famous father for being a role model, he admitted that he has always carved his path without using the Junior star’s name to gain recognition or roles. Baena was a contestant in Dancing With The Stars Season 31 and also made his acting debut in the film Chariot in 2022.
