Call it a benefit or a con, but whenever you are close to someone in the showbiz world, there is a high chance you get it. The case is precisely the same with Mildred Patricia Baena, who had a whole lot of history with Austrian-American actor cum politician Arnold Schwarzenegger. Her introduction would be incomplete without mentioning how she is the mother of Arnold’s out of wedding child. So, today we take you close to the personal life and the clear insight upon the life of Mildred Patricia Baena.

Who is Mildred Patricia Baena?

To make the introduction easier, Mildred Patricia Baena is the mother of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s love child. Surprisingly, she was the employee of the former California governor as a housekeeper. It was then when the two crossed paths very often in their house itself and shared a romantic feeling for one another.

Mildred Patricia Baena worked for the Schwarzenegger family for 20 years until retiring in January 2011. The whole incident occurred in the mid-1990s when the ‘Terminator 2: Judgement Day’ actor slept with Baena. Unfortunately, Baena got pregnant with Arnold’s child and later gave birth to their son, Joseph Pena. Interestingly, she put the name of her then-husband as the father in the birth certificate instead of the Austrian origin actor.

Mildred Patricia Baena Confirmed the Affair To Schwarzenegger’s Wife

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s worst fears came true in January 2011 when the secret about his extra-marital affair with the housekeeper came forward to his wife, Maria Shriver. As per the details, it was Mildred Patricia Baena, who confirmed the relationship when the celebrity wife came forward with a suspicion. In fact, the shadow of doubt occurred when Arnold’s ex-wife started to see and hear talk of Joseph’s physical similarity to his father around the house.
