Arnold Schwarzenegger’s out-of-wedlock baby mama delivered their love child within a week of the birth of one of his four kids with wife Maria Shriver 13 years ago, according to published reports yesterday.
Mildred Patricia “Patty” Baena, 50, who had been a housekeeper for the couple and their children for 20 years, said Schwarzenegger, 63, didn’t know he was the father for several years. TMZ.com obtained a copy of his birth certificate that shows Baena’s then-husband was the dad and that the child was born on Oct. 2, 1997.
When Schwarzenegger found out a couple of years later, he “generously” supported them, sources told the site. Now divorced, Baena lives in a $250,000 home in Bakersfield, Calif., with Schwarzenegger’s unidentified son and three other children, TMZ said.
“It’s stunning. He [the teen] is just a spitting image of Arnold Schwarzenegger,” Harvey Levin, TMZ managing editor, yesterday told CNN.
Baena “aggressively pursued” Schwarzenegger and they would get together in the couple’s California home “in the mornings when Maria would take the kids to school,” Levin said she told her friends.
Schwarzenegger reportedly confessed to his wife, with whom he has four children ages 13 to 21, earlier this month after Baena threatened to go public. “She admitted to friends how she finally wanted to tell the secret — that she had kept faithfully for 14 years — to the world,” a confidante of Baena told Radaronline.com and Star Magazine.
Soon after, the former California governor reportedly fired Baena, followed by Schwarzenegger and Shriver announcing last week that they were separating after 25 years of marriage.
Reps for Schwarzenegger and Shriver didn’t return requests for comment. Calls to a number listed in Bakersfield, Calif. for Baena went unanswered.
