Arnold admits that he fathered a child over 10 years ago with a member of their household staff. So sleazy!
Arnold said in a statement released to the Los Angeles Times newspaper: "After leaving the governor's office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago. 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.
"I ask that the media respect my wife and children through this extremely difficult time. While I deserve your attention and criticism, my family does not."
The baby mama worked for the family for two decades, retired and received a severance package, according to the L.A. Times.
Wow! How do you recover from that? No wonder Maria stopped wearing her wedding ring after he left office. She moved into the Beverly Hills hotel and they starting living separate lives.
Arnold and Maria have been married for 10 years and have four kids together, Katherine, 21, Christina, 19, Patrick, 17, and Christopher, 13. So just three years after their last son was born Arnold had an illegitimate child with a member of their staff. Wow. I’m speechless.
