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.

    Geez, you people really know how to get off topic, and what I realize reading all of the posts on any subject, that it usually goes in that direction, very clearly showing that America is a pretty racist country! You should all unite – don't wait for the alien invasion, as you depict in movies in order to get all sentimental and realize that we are all humans, with the same feelings, wants, needs and desires. It seems that the more religious the person, the more hatred they have towards other people of colour. Too bad.

    What is missing here is that marriage is not completely a romantic act. It is a commitment to society to provide a stable, loving home to bring up children. The romantic part takes a bit of work sometimes, because if you men think your women lack something in the romantic department, think about how difficult it is to create a loving environment with a man who is, in every moment, a demand that his needs are the only needs in a home with six people. There are wonderful, loving husbands and fathers out there. This conversation is about a man who is not that. This is about a man who screams every minute ARE YOU GOING TO MEET MY NEEDS OR NOT!!!!!

    Not that it makes it ok or nothing, but Maria WAS born into the Kennedy family. Infidelity should NOT be news to her. ALL the Kennedy men cheated on their wives ........ Just Saying.

    That explains her continued dignity with all this going on.

    Arnold AND the maid are both at fault. The resulting child is NOT to blame in any way. He did not ask to be born, and he was not able to choose who his parents were.

      Grabbing other people's land has been going on since the dawn of time. Before Columbus came Native Americans were killing each other off and stealing each other's land. Its just the way of things – lots of the people all over the world you think land was stolen from stole it from someone else first.

    What the hell does being foreign have anything to do with it? We all belong to the same race. HUMAN. How sad. This is why we kill each other. Ignorance.
