Arnie: mistress, wife gave birth days apart

ARNOLD Schwarzenegger’s wife and mistress gave birth within five days of each other.

The actor and former politician fathered a love child with his family’s housekeeper Mildred Patricia Baena (50) while she was employed by him and it has now been revealed his wife Maria Shriver (55) had their youngest son Christopher (13) five days before, according to

According to Baena’s son’s birth certificate, the teen was born on October 2, 1997, while Christopher’s birthday is September 27.

While Baena’s ex-husband, Rogelio Baena, has been listed as the father on documents, divorce papers filed in February 2008 state the couple have “no minor children”.

Baena now lives with a new partner, her son with Schwarzenegger and three other children in a four-bedroom £150 000 (R1,7 million) house in Bakersfield, outside Los Angeles, which neighbours claim the Terminator star bought for her as a “retirement gift” when she stopped working for him.

Meanwhile, Schwarzenegger’s estranged wife Shriver, who left him when she found out about his love child, is said to be considering divorce after she hired prominent Los Angeles attorney Laura Wasser.
