Just call him the new Tiger Woods. What went from a sad (but, sort of normal) separation from his wife of 25 years looks like it may turn into a mistress media circus of epic proportions for former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
According to the New York Times, 50-year-old Mildred Patricia Baena (who supposedly goes by "Patty") was a housekeeper in the Schwarzeneggers' home when she became pregnant with Arnold's love child over 14 years ago. What makes it worse is that not only did the affair happen under his now estranged wife's nose, but Maria Shriver was also pregnant at the same time with the couple's youngest son.

Reportedly, it was only until four weeks ago, when Arnold finally fired Mildred in an attempt to save his marriage, that he went public with his secret to Maria, who reportedly knew nothing about the affair or child. But what prompted Arnold's sudden desire to be honest and claim Mildred's son, who bears an eerie resemble to Arnold, as his own? Some close to Mildred say that she and Arnold had a "nuclear" fight after she was let go from the Schwarzenegger home.
"Mildred was furious that the father of her 14-year-old son would callously fire her from her job after decades of loyal service," said a source to RadarOnline. "She admitted to friends how she finally wanted to tell the secret — that she had kept faithfully for 14 years — to the world." 10 Reasons Maria Shriver Is Better Without Arnold Schwarzenegger
Mildred may not be the only woman Arnold wooed during his marriage, either. "The Sperminator," as some are calling him, could have as many as 13 mistresses, including Gigi Goyette Jeffe, who the National Enquirer claims was only 16-years-old when she slept with Arnold.
It's looking less and less likely that Maria will be able to get over her husband's very public indescretions, especially if the reports that she "disses" him on the finale of The Oprah Winfrey Show are true. Maybe she and and Elin Nordegren should start a support group?
