Finally some words from Mildred Baena. She reveals that Maria asked her point blank if her son Joseph was Arnold’s son after hearing rumblings and confesses that maria was not upset with her. Maria is such a class act!! Hello Magazine has the exclusive interview,
When it was revealed that Arnold Schwarzenegger had a 13-year-old child with a trusted member of the familyâ€™s domestic staff, the world let out a collective gasp.
The mother, housekeeper Mildred Baena, has since been in hiding.
But with fictitious stories circulating in the media, she has decided to set the record straight, and is giving what will be her first and only interview exclusively to HELLO! magazine.
She is joined by the other protagonist in this distressing drama, son Joseph, who has dealt with the events of the past few weeks with a maturity way beyond his years.
When his grandmother sat him down one year ago to explain that Arnold Schwarzenegger was his father, he exclaimed: â€œCool!â€.
And his mother said the young boy is looking forward to building a relationship with the former Hollywood star.
Guatelaman-born Mildred revealed that she realised the truth once her son started to resemble the former Governor of California.
â€œIt was as Joseph grew and I started to see the resemblance that I wondered â€“ but It became more apparent as time went on,â€ she said.
â€œI knew Arnold was the father, and maybe as Joseph got older and began to look like him, he [Arnold] wondered. But he never said anything to me.â€
She also revealed that Marie Shriver, Arnoldâ€™s now ex-wife, had started to put two and two together when she heard whispers in the household about the pair’s similarity.
â€œShe would say things like, â€œIâ€™m here if you need to talk.â€ I sensed something was up. I have so much love and respect for Maria.
â€œFinally, she asked point blank.â€
But it was Mariaâ€™s actions that shocked Mildred.
â€œShe was so strong. She cried with me and told me to get off my knees. We held each other and I told her it wasnâ€™t Arnieâ€™s fault, that it takes two.â€
Finally, she expressed her sympathy for Arnold and what he must be going through: â€œHeâ€™s a good man and I know heâ€™s suffering too. He loves Maria. I hope with time they work things out.â€
