If you wondered why Maria Shriver left Arnold Schwarzenegger after so many years of marriage here it is. Arnold fathered a child with a member of their household staff. Sources say that Maria was shocked and utterly destroyed after she learned her husband had done a “John Edwards”. The baby mama worked for the family for two decades, retired and also received a severance package according to the L.A. Times.
The baby that was fathered by Arnold Schwarzenegger was born more than 10 years ago. Just until recently Maria had thought that it was the woman’s husband’s baby. Can you imagine the shock of all of this on Maria? I am sure she will walk away with a pretty penny.
Schwarzenegger told The Times, “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 apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry.” Maria released a statement saying, “This is a painful and heartbreaking time. As a mother, my concern is for the children.”She continued, “I ask for compassion, respect and privacy as my children and I try to rebuild our lives and heal. I will have no further comment.”
