Arnold Schwarzenegger Has A Secret Love-Child With Former Employee

Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has admitted to fathering a child with a member of his household staff more than a decade ago, prompting the announcement that he as his wife Maria Shriver are separating.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Shriver moved out of the family’s Brentwood mansion earlier this year, after Schwarzenegger told her about the other child. Their split comes after being married for 25 years.

The former governor spoke to the times in a statement saying, “After leaving the governor’s office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago. I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry. I ask that the media respect my wife and children through this extremely difficult time. While I deserve your attention and criticism, my family does not.”

The former staff member left Schwarzenegger’s family back in January. She had been working for the couple for 20 years.
