The former governor of the state of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, has revealed that he had a secret love child with a long serving member of his staff. The revelation came just one week after he and wife Maria Schriver announced that they were to separate after being married for 25 years.
Schwarzenegger said, "After leaving the governor's office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago.” He continued by saying, "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."
It is believed that the mother of the child was a member of the household staff for 20 years and that she retired in January of this year. She claimed that the father was another man but has refused to comment since Arnolds revelation. Schwarzenegger and wife Maria Schriver
