Arnold Schwarzenegger made a shocking confession that sheds some light on the reason behind his split with Maria Shriver.
Arnold admitted this morning that he fathered a child with a former member of his household staff. The child was born a decade ago, but Maria just found out about the child earlier this year when the staff member retired after 20 years of working with the family.
He released a statement regarding the affair: “After leaving the governor’s office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago. I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologised to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry. I ask that the media respect my wife and children through this extremely difficult time. While I deserve your attention and criticism, my family does not. “
Separating after 25 years of marriage makes a whole lot more sense now.
