Arnold Schwarzenegger admits affair was his ‘f***-up’ as he shares love for ex

Arnold Schwarzenegger only legally divorced Maria Shriver two years ago, having split in 2011 following the revelations of his affair with the family’s housekeeper.

The Hollywood actor secretly fathered a child, Joseph Baena, now 26, with Mildred Baena while he was still married to Maria.

Speaking in a new interview with People about a hard time in his life, he admitted it was all his “f**k-up”, and insisted he and Maria are still on good terms despite.

He told the outlet: “My chapter with Maria will continue on forever.

“Even though it’s a different relationship, there’s no reason for me to feel anything other than love for her.”

The Terminator star also stressed the pair always put their children first, sharing: Katherine, 33, Christina, 31, Patrick, 30, and Christopher, 26.

He explained: “We always made it very clear that the kids should not suffer because of [the affair].

“And she has her things, her relationship, I have mine [with Heather Milligan], but we always communicate about the kids, about the holidays, about birthday parties and Mother’s Day parties and Christmas.”

Speaking in his Netflix docuseries, he explained how he and Maria went to counseling before deciding to end their marriage.

He said: “Maria and I went to counseling once a week. In one of the sessions the counselor said, ‘I think today Maria wants to be very specific about something. She wants to know if you are the father of Joseph [Baena].’

“And I was like – I thought my heart stopped, and then I told the truth… She was crushed because of that. I had an affair in ’96. In the beginning, I really didn’t know.

“I just started feeling the older he got the more it became clear to me and then it was really just a matter of how do you keep this quiet? How do you keep this a secret?

“I think that I have caused enough pain for my family because of my f**k-up. Everyone had to suffer. Maria had to suffer. The kids had to suffer. Joseph. His mother. Everyone.”

Schwarzenegger has since moved on with physical therapist Heather Milligan, with the pair first being linked in 2013.

Speaking of his long-term love, he said: “Our relationship is fantastic. I think the world of her. I love that she’s into working.

“She’s clearly independent. She just is driven as hell.”
