Boy's reaction to being Schwarzenegger's son: 'Cool!'

When the 13-year-old son of Arnold Schwarzenegger's former housekeeper found out the Terminator was his father, he answered with one word: "Cool!"

That's what the housekeeper, Mildred Baena, tells HELLO! magazine, in what the British publication says will be her first and only interview on the subject.

The housekeeper told the magazine she didn't realize at first that the boy, Joseph, was Schwarzenegger's son.

“It was as Joseph grew and I started to see the resemblance that I wondered – but It became more apparent as time went on,” HELLO! quotes Baena as saying.“I knew Arnold was the father, and maybe as Joseph got older and began to look like him, he (Arnold) wondered. But he never said anything to me.”

Baena also said Schwarzenegger's wife, Maria Shriver, had her suspicions.

“She would say things like, 'I’m here if you need to talk.' I sensed something was up," Baena is quoted as saying. “Finally, she asked point blank.”

Upon learning the truth, Shriver comforted Baena, the housekeeper told HELLO!

"She cried with me. ... We held each other and I told her it wasn’t Arnie’s fault, that it takes two,” Baena is quoted as saying.

    Arnold is a nasty dog and it looks like her profession, besides housekeeping, is sleeping around. Wow, what a duet.

    She was married when she got pregnant, so she thought it was her husbands kid.

      I am sure she may have had some feeling that it could have been Arnold's. If not she was pretty dumb. Any woman that sleeps with more than one man and then finds out she is pregnant is going to wonder which guy is the father. Her husband probably pimped her out, cause there is no mention that he is going to leave her over this. They are probably very happy this has come out.......they will be rolling in dough.

      they've been divorced for a good while – she's probably the only one 'rolling in dough' but maybe the kid will be too, now.

      No, Justin. Mildred said that her husband was out of the country when Joseph was conceived so she knew it wasn't his baby. However, she also said she didn't know Joseph was Arold's child until he began looking like Arnold as he grew up. So - I wonder how long the list was of men that Mildred thought could possibly be Joseph's father.

      Well, by many people's reckoning, it doesn't matter much how many people MIGHT be the parent... obviously children have no right to a stable home.

      She was married when she got pregnant and hoped she could pass it off as her husband's kid.

    white men have been ducking into the servants quarters for centuries, and those servants are usually minorities...white women should start taking care of their OWN homes, husbands, and children, and quit trying to look like Skeletor, and this kind of crap would NEVER happen under her own roof..real men love curves on their women..not skin and bone...eat a real meal white ladies! quit staving yourselves for a men who love MEAT and potatoes!

      Women are not responsible for the behaviors of piggish males. Men need to grow up and take responsibility for their odorous behaviors and stop blaming everything and everyone for theor own failings. If you need a Mommy to keep you civilizated, marry your own mother. And, women need to just say "NO" to the males who think cheating, abuse, and other miscreant behaviors are okay. Kick 'em to curb and move on.

      you people KNOW it's true..If you invite a woman into your home who does a better job of running it than you EXPECT your husband to start sleeping with her..It's like inviting a vampire into your house..she'll suck you DRY..and if the wife has the body of a 12 year old asian boy..expect him to cheat even MORE.

      oh please... on the one hand you minorities show up illegally begging for a job because things are soooooo bad back home. We give it to you then you scr*w our husbands in our own bed... THEN you justify your poor behavior saying it is because we should mop our own floors! What kind of dog meat blames the victim for the perps behavior? Abusive dog meat.

    Hey Arnold, I never thought of the maid as an option. Would have saved me a trip to Perkins and I could have had breakfast in bed. Oh well. get out the checkbook buddy. If you have time, give me a call and we'll swap ideas at McDonalds or Perkins 🙂 !
