Arnold Schwarzenegger, Maria Shriver split over baby he fathered with member of household staff
By Michael Sheridan DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER
Tuesday, May 17th 2011, 5:57 AM Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver announced their split in early May after having been together for 25 years.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver announced their split in early May after having been together for 25 years.
The marriage between Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver was terminated because he fathered a child with a member of his household staff, it was revealed Tuesday.
The former Governor of California and his wife announced their separation earlier this month. The couple had been together for 25 years, but remained mum on what cause the split.
The surprising split was sparked when Schwarzenegger admitted to Shriver the child, born 10 years ago, was his.
"After leaving the governor's office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago," Schwarzenegger said in a statement.
"I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family," he said. "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."
The 63-year-old former bodybuilder asked that the media "respect my wife and children through this extremely difficult time. While I deserve your attention and criticism, my family does not."
In a separate statement, the female employee told the Los Angeles Times she had said that her husband at the time was the child's father. The birth occurred years before Schwarzenegger became governor of California in 2004.
Another source told the Times that Schwarzenegger has provided financial support for the child from the beginning.

Schwartzenegger is a slob. Arnold just couldn’t keep it in his pants. He has no regard for the sanctity of marriage. He hurt his wife and children in the process. Slob.
Longtime, BIG JERK!
his womanizing has been well known for years. What I find odd is his wife apparently didn’t mind the womanizing, it was only when he had a child that she left him.
Precisely why I never offer to help our maid change the sheets.
Hey, she’s a Kennedy for goodness sake. If she can’t handle this she should renounce the name.
LA Times will not disclose the employee’s name ‘for privacy reasons’.
Wanna bet she was an illegal when she began working for them and has since gotten fast-tracked to citizenship?
I've got that covered...my housekeeper is approaching 70. :-)
“...What I find odd is his wife apparently didnt mind the womanizing, it was only when he had a child that she left him.”
Kennedy women have been tolerating their womaninzing men for generations. Maria still would have tolerated hadn’t been for the child Arnold fathered.
He is Presidential material if you are a Democrat. Especially since place of birth no longer matters.
(Cue creaking sounds of bones being disjointed)
Steven Segal II or Jesse James II or Stupid Guy Tricks 1000!
Apparently he is a Jesse Jackson wannabe.
I’ not defending Arnold, he’s a liberal POS. But if the philandering Kennedy men are heroes in Maria’s mind, why not him?
Uncle Teddy chased skirts and killed a woman wearing one. Yet I’ll bet in Maria’s mind he was still a hero.
I knew the maid was doing more than vacuum the Hummer.
You beat me to it!!
It's not that he fathered the baby that gets to her, it is that he let it live and didn't offer it up to the god of the kennedies as a little human blood sacrifice.
Schwarzenegger is a jerk and a slop. One would think he was a (gasp), a Kennedy!
He is just being a normal Kennedy. She should be proud!
What a creep. I’m glad she left him.
It's women that are married to Kennedy men that are able to handle this.
That makes sense why she would leave him.
****Another source told the Times that Schwarzenegger has provided financial support for the child from the beginning.*****
Coming soon to a tabloid near you: “A million dollar pay-day for story and photos”
That’s one maid who made it big!!!!!!
Exactly. In the Kennedy creed, womanizing is okay as long as you keep is discreet & don’t father a child.
She told ya that, did she?
He should have remained a single man...
I feel badly for all the kids involved.
I'm guessing the same thoughts were on his mind every morning.
The odd thing is the the timing of his confession ten years after the fact. My wild guess, he thought of the one thing that would guarantee skeletor's exit, as well as the end of any political career.
He justed wanted out right now and any crap from the press would be a cake walk compared to another single night with the living dead.
For some reason the Kingston Trio's "Zombie Jamboree" keeps running through my head ;>)
The stripper pole in the maids quarters should have been a dead giveaway.
Always called Aaaahnold “The Covert Kennedy”. Apparently he wanted to live like one in every phase of his life.
The Sperminator strikes again.
He did become a Kennedy, didn’t he?
At least Maria didn’t have cancer.
Since she didn’t mind the womanizing and only objected to the child, as a liberal, she should know how to deal with that. The kid’s ten so all she’s gotta do is perform a late post term abortion. /s
I guess that Arnold was giving the maid more than the sandwich’s that should have gone to Maria.
No she didn’t tell me that....her Kennedy heritage did.
Polishing the Hummer wasn’t enough for Arnold.
Note to Arnold: The only reason you, your wife and your children are going through an "extremely difficult time" is because you didn't respect your wife or your marriage. What a blithering idiot. Never ceases to amaze me how some people go out of their way to screw up their lives......
At least Jackie was attractive both were used by Jack Kennedy, Aristotle Onassis and Arnold and were married for their names not love.
A blood Kennedy being cheated ON?? Usually it’s the Kennedys who cheat on the women they married.
It’s a shame they didn’t split before he allowed her harebrained ideas to influence him.
If I read the article correctly, the “baby” is now 7 years old. At what point was Maria upset, when she found out or when she stopped being the first lady of California?
No, unfortunately. And that's the very thing that might have prevented all this.
This thread is useless without pictures. Maria looks skeletal, and maybe we now know why, being married to a dawg. What does the baby-momma look like?
An anchor baby?
It was someone on his staff?
