Latina Mildred Patricia Baena (Patty), 50, has been identified by TMZ.com and Radaronline.com as the former maid and mother of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s love child.
The child, believed to be in his early teens now, bares a striking resemblance to a younger Arnold. Though we have blurred the minor’s face, he his gap-toothed smile and wavy blond/brown hair is reminiscent of his Arnold’s portrayal of Conan.
Baena reportedly has three other children, and lives several hours outside of Los Angeles. Sources have said she began to “pursue” the married man in the late 1990’s. Her and Arnold would have unprotected sex during the day when no one was home, and they were never caught. The action star turned California governor was not told he was the father of the boy until he was a toddler. Upon finding out, sources say he was always “generous” and helped Baena.
The housekeeper had worked for the family for 20 years before allegedly retiring in January. On Monday, Schwarzenegger made the announcement that he had fathered a child with a household staffer more than a decade ago, before he was elected as governor of California.
RadarOnline.com has also reported that Baena did not retire, and in fact was fired by Schwarzenegger as in an attempt to save his 25-year marriage to Maria Shriver, with whom he has 4 children. Prior to Arnold’s statement, Baena was reportedly angry that “all of a sudden and out of nowhere, she was told there was no longer work for her … Mildred took it hard.”
Radar’s unidentified source also said, “Mildred did not retire… she was working for Arnold and Maria until about four weeks ago,” and she was “furious that the father of her 14-year-old son would callously fire her from her job after decades of loyal service.”
