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.

    Oh well, at least this won't affect his movie career too much. That had already shrivelled away by the time he went into politics. Terminator 3 succeeded because of the series' enduring popularity, rather than that of its star. End of Days, The 6th Day, Collateral Damage...all box office underachievers.

    He must have been 3 sheets to the wind to sleep with that, or he may have had a bag over his head. She's repulsive.

    They both knew who the father was but they agreed to conceal the secret to protect the marriage and Arnold political career. I only sorry for his wife.

      As an expert in humiliation, I can tell you the kid will have it worse than his mom. The good news is that in about five years he'll be able to whip anyone who teases him like he owns them. I can't even whip little anthony weiner anymore.

    Why do we know this child's name or what he looks like?
    Why is his mother giving interviews to Hello! magazine for profit? Has she not inflicted enough pain and ridicule on her innocent child?
    She is selfish. This is about her ego and her desire to have her side of the story heard. Not protecting her child as she should be doing. She should have taken her blessings and her 13 year old child and stayed away from the press.

      I found the kid's picture on Myspace fairly easily, as did many other people. I wouldn't blame it on the media.

      I actually thought the same thing before. But I realized somebody else would make money off giving interviews and pictures. I guess it is extremely difficult to completely hide in this age. At least she is making money of the interview which her son will benefit too. And once there is an interview, there will be lesser interests for wannabe journalists and paparazzis.

      After figuring it out, she should have left the house. She was there for years after giving birth. If she had ANY respect for herself, her child, Arnold, Maria or their children she would have left the house. She's a tramp and just plain cruel all the way around. I sympathize with her kid (finding out Mom's a Ho) and I feel sorry for Arnold's wife and kids. She didn't deserve what she got and for that long......

      Totally agree with you there. She should be thinking about protecting her child. You know she is getting paid off by Arnold and now the press so it is all about the money.

      FYI- if you are going to cheat on your wife make sure the chick is younger and hotter than your wife.
      Just in case some of you idiotmen out there don't know.
      Better yet, marry a stri pper, they will share their friends with you.

      Making money of everything is the American way. She is just doing what any American will do. Money, money, money, is the American God. She just hit the lotto and many people here are just full of envy.

      Mr Weiner, you wouldn't know constraint from restraint. Which is probably what he meant.

      What does "constaint" mean? If she kept her knees together the "point of entry" would be constrained. Or he could have physically constrained her (locked her in a closet?). Or she could have constained her availability by limiting the available areas of service to the other two orifices.

    This woman is so low class and disgusting: sleeping with your employer who you know is married [because you know his wife] when you are married youself and then not knowing who is the father of your child. Now she's elling ehr story to the highest bidder. No class, no self-respect, utterly contemptuous and self-indulgent. These two certianly deserved each other. I would feel sorry for the kid but for him thinking the situation is 'cool'. No values, just dollar signs.

      I agree. She is not the only illegal that comes over here with only intentions of tryng to take somebodys husband. They are all about deceit, deception and $$, and all the while pretentious as if their inability to speak English makes them someone naive or innocent. Maria and the press should tell this woman that they do not speaka tricka!!! I guarantee you she did all the seducing (that is their culture). Look around at how they dress and how they let their girls dress. As much as I really never liked Arnold anyway, he has actually turned out to be "worse" of a person, politician and husband than I thought he might be. Remember, he is a foreigner too! The two of them are an embarassment to this country and should shipped back whereever the heck they came from! Two heads and not a half a brain between them!
