Barely a month from the shivering news about Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver’s separation, now Mildred Baena, the former maid turned Arnold’s mistress has vowed to speak out.
Baena says that last summer she brought to the house the 13 year old son born out of secret love between her and the former California governor. Immediately those in the house noticed the boy’s similarity with his father. “They all started whispering about how they looked like each other”, Says Baena in an interview with hello magazine.
Baena reveals that at this point Maria Shriver pushed for confirmation. She says that she was unwilling to talk but Maria insisted. “Finally she asked point blank”, Says Baena.
Baena reveals that she would then break down and drop to her knees as she told Maria the plain truth. But it was Maria’s strong heart that shocked her. “I was crying and saying yes and that I was sorry. She cried with me and told me to get off my knees”.
It was not easy for Maria to come to terms with the shivering revelations of a long 20 year affair, but we can learn a good lesson in her sobriety in such a sad moment in her marriage. She demonstrated what we can boldly say was remarkable maturity.
