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.
‚ÄúIt was as Joseph grew and I started to see the resemblance that I wondered ‚Äď but It became more apparent as time went on,‚ÄĚ HELLO! quotes Baena as saying.‚ÄúI 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.‚ÄĚ
Baena also said Schwarzenegger's wife, Maria Shriver, had her suspicions.
‚ÄúShe would say things like, 'I‚Äôm here if you need to talk.' I sensed something was up," Baena is quoted as saying. ‚ÄúFinally, she asked point blank.‚ÄĚ
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‚Äôt Arnie‚Äôs fault, that it takes two,‚ÄĚ Baena is quoted as saying.
