Mildred Patricia Baena: Mother Of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Love Child

Huffington Post  Ashley Reich  First Posted: 05/18/11 01:24 AM ET Updated: 05/18/11 12:20 PM ET

Mildred Patricia Baena, 50, has been identified as the mother of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s love child, RadarOnline.com reported Tuesday night.

Baena, who goes by Patty, was a housekeeper for the Schwarzenegger family for 20 years before retiring in January.

According to TMZ, the former housekeeper–who lives several hours outside of Los Angeles with Schwarzenegger’s son and her three other children–began to “pursue Arnold” in the late 1990s. She reportedly told friends that she and Schwarzenegger had unprotected sex during the day at his house, though she didn’t tell him that he was the father of her child until the boy was a toddler.

Schwarzenegger announced Monday night that he had fathered a child with a household staffer over a decade ago, before he was elected as California governor.

“After leaving the governor’s office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago,” he said in a statement issued to the Los Angeles Times. “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.”

Arnold Considered Party Switch

The Daily Beast- by Joe Mathews

Feb 23, 2009

How bad did things get between Der Governator and his fellow Republicans? Schwarzenegger’s biographer, Joe Mathews, reports that he recently considered dropping out of the party altogether. It’s the latest blast in a long-running war.

A few months ago, Arnold Schwarzenegger and a few close associates discussed whether he should leave the Republican Party, according to two people familiar with the conversation. His friend Mike Bloomberg, the New York mayor, had become an independent. Maybe Schwarzenegger should, too. But the governor and his people quickly concluded that Californians already saw him as independent of the Republican Party. So what would be the point of a switch? (A spokesman for the governor declined comment.)

To people outside the state, Schwarzenegger’s recent battles with Republican legislators over a budget and his criticism of GOP governors and congressmen for their opposition to President Obama’s stimulus package might sound jarring. Schwarzenegger once was “Conan the Republican” (the first President Bush’s nickname for him), a politician who declared in his 2004 convention speech, “I’m proud to belong to the party of Abraham Lincoln, the party of Teddy Roosevelt, the party of Ronald Reagan and the party of George W. Bush.” Now he is on ABC News saying that “it doesn’t really mater [matter] if you’re a Republican or a Democrat.”
