Arnold Schwarzenegger admits to fathering illegitimate child
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: So that’s why Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver have decided to split.
The former California governor and longtime Hollywood action star has admitted to fathering a child with a member of his household staff more than a decade ago, the L.A. Times reports.
“After leaving the governor’s office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago,” Schwarzenegger said Monday night in a statement. “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.”
The Times is not revealing the employee’s name to protect their privacy, but reports that she retired in January after serving 20 years and left the couple “on good terms.”
