Shriver filed for divorce in 2011, two months after it was revealed that Schwarzenegger had fathered a child with Mildred Baena, the couple's longtime housekeeper. At the time, she said in a statement, "This is a painful and heartbreaking time. As a mother, my concern is for the children. I ask for compassion, respect and privacy as my children and I try to rebuild our lives and heal."
The former governor of California also released a statement at the time in which he took responsibility for his actions and said, “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.”
Getting To Know Arnold Schwarzenegger
While Schwarzenegger shares four children with Shriver, he's been putting in a lot of effort toward forming and maintaining a strong relationship with his son with Baena, Joseph Baena.
"He's terrific and he totally understands the situation," he told Howard Stern of the Joseph in June 2015. "So, it all has worked out … It's a very tough situation for him. It's a very tough situation for my kids. Very tough situation for my family. It was tough for everybody. But it has happened and now we have to figure it out, right?"
