Mildred Patricia Baena and Arnold Schwarzenegger

Baena worked at Schwarzenegger’s Brentwood mansion as a housekeeper from the early 1990s and stayed away from the media for most of that time. She worked there for around 20 years. Before her involvement with the actor, she was married to Rogelio de Jesus Baena. While Baena had a romantic relationship with Schwarzenegger, he was married to Maria Shriver, whom he wed on April 26, 1986.

Despite their marital statuses, Baena and Schwarzenegger carried on a secret romantic relationship that led to Baena becoming pregnant. Surprisingly, Baena did not initially inform Schwarzenegger about the child’s paternity. On October 2, 1997, she gave birth to their son, Joseph Baena Rogelio. This led to conflicts between Baena and her then-husband, leading to their separation on October 23, 1997.

Arnold and Maria Shriver

Baena kept the truth about Joseph’s paternity hidden from Schwarzenegger, only revealing it once she noticed her son’s resemblance to him. The media’s attention turned to Baena several years after their child’s birth. Maria Shriver, Schwarzenegger’s wife, began to suspect a relationship between Baena and her husband. The situation came to light when Baena confessed to Shriver that Schwarzenegger was the father of Joseph.

On May 9, 2011, Arnold and Maria’s 25-year marriage ended due to a highly publicized infidelity scandal involving Schwarzenegger and Baena. The revelation became public on May 16, 2011, when the Los Angeles Times reported that Schwarzenegger had fathered a child with Baena more than 14 years earlier. Schwarzenegger admitted to the affair after leaving the governor’s office.

Baena’s son with Schwarzenegger was born shortly after the birth of Shriver’s child. Shriver already had four kids with the actor, Katherine, Christina, Patrick, and Christopher. Joseph Rogelio acknowledged that it took him several years to realise the truth about his paternity.

In the Netflix series, FUBAR, Schwarzenegger talks about the guilt he carries for hurting his family and he refers to the incident as a “major failure” in his life.

He said: “I have caused enough pain for my family. I will have to live with it the rest of my life.”
