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.

      No buddy, it takes two. She opened her legs, she is just as much to blame. Stop giving women the pass.

      Perhaps the O.P. meant to type Loved. The V key and the B key are next-door neighbors.

    Come on Im sure the housemaid felt somewhat swept away by the fact that the Terminator wanted to be with her like that. But then again I blame it on the fact that he married a democrat. Will ruin em every time 🙂

    Nice low-angle view of Maria's plastic surgery scars. If I had to sleep next to that every night, I'd be ducking into the maid's quarters too.

      Wirth your personality and lack of a brain, you probably are below trailer trash standards. What makes you think Maria would even want you? Or ANY woman for that remark? You are a 3rd rate low class jerk

      So, all of you dissing on Maria Shriver might notice that her husband wants her back. If she was such a loss, he would have divorced her long ago. He's not running for Governor, and he is begging her to return. They both have pots of money, so it isn't about money or politics.

    The guy cheated on his wife period. Which it is typical for any politician to lie and cheat. Its there job description. Its what is expected of them. Come on, he's only the governor of one of the largest economies in the world. What do you expect from a bodybuilder – some form of profound thought process, some amazing new plan to maintain a balanced budget? We elected an idiot and we got idiot like results. Don't blame Arnie for being an idiot – he is a politician. That' what they do.

    Why after all this time is the housekeeper talking and to a tabloid yet. Answer: Money! Obviously, she needed a little more security for her retirement and the previous employers were not coming through. I don't believe a word she says about crying and all. Not after 13 years and 9 months. She is one greedy female.

      She needs money to hide her son now that the paparazzi is chasing them around. I can't blame her. That kid never asked to be born and never asked for this story to blow up....Shwartznenegger should be paying big time, more than any magazine.

      Greedy? If this woman wanted to be greedy, she would have been blackmailing Arnold for years! She could have derailed one or both of his gubernatorial races if she wished. How does doing an interview make her greedy? She could have tried to blackmail the Kennedy family as well over the past decade and a half – they certainly have money. She didn't do any of those things and now that the secret is public, she wants to tell her side of the story and leave it at that. Give the woman a break!

      How is she greedy? Ignorance is bliss. Maybe she might have maid opening since she is so "greedy", I suggest you take her up on that offer!

      I agree with you Gayle...........I don't care what anyone else says. It is pure greed. She looks like she is almost at retirement age and probably wanted to cash in now. And alittle bonus money from the tabloids before she goes. Pure greed.

    • oldboldgold

      She didn't come forward until it was a tabloid story already. She may not have wanted her kid to realize she was a ho at work. Now that is is all over the tabloids, she wants to put out a soft version. The kid is about the right age to think it is "cool" that Arnold is his daddy... and that he will be RICH.
