Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s msirteess Mildred Baena sat down for an exclusive interview with Hello! magazine. In this interview, Baena reveals how she told Maria Shriver that she had a child with Schwarzenegger.
The interview shows that Mildred wasn’t sure who her son Josephs father was until he started to resemble Arnold Schwarzenegger.
“It was as Joseph grew and I started to see the resemblance that I wondered – but It became more apparent as time went on,” she said.
“I knew Arnold was the father, and maybe as Joseph got older and began to look like him, he [Arnold] wondered. But he never said anything to me.”
Baena also revealed that it was her son’s grandmother, who sat him down and told him that the former governor was his father. Baena recalls that Joseph said “Cool!” once he learned the news.
Mildred told Hello! that Maria did have a feeling that Joseph might have been Arnold’s.
“She would say things like, “I’m here if you need to talk.” I sensed something was up. I have so much love and respect for Maria.
“Finally, she asked point blank.”
“She was so strong. She cried with me and told me to get off my knees. We held each other and I told her it wasn’t Arnie’s fault, that it takes two.”
Baena did finish out the interview by saying she knows that Arnold loves Maria and hopes that the two will reconcile in the future.
“He’s a good man and I know he’s suffering too. He loves Maria. I hope with time they work things out.”
