Arnold Schwarzenegger Says He Still Loves Maria Shriver
Arnold’s recent film ‘The Last Stand’ might not have created much of an impression at the box office, but he personally is still interested in creating an impression in Maria Shriver’s heart. During the promotion of the film he mentioned in an interview that he still is interested in reconciling with Maria. “We’re not fighting any war. I still hope for reconciliation. I still love Maria” Arnold was basically quoted as saying. In fact, he gave this reply when questioned about him spending the Christmas with Maria and his kids.
For those unaware, Maria and Arnold filed for separation when it was revealed that Arnold had fathered a child more than fourteen years ago with an employee in their household, Mildred Patricia ‘Patty’ Baena. Arnold and Maria were married for 25 years, which in other words means Arnold cheated on Maria while they were married. “After leaving the governor’s office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago” Schwarzenegger was quoted as saying, while elaborating about how his wife found out about his infidelity. One thing Arnold conveniently forgot to mention in the statement is that he owned up to whole thing after Maria confronted him about the issue. Turns out, she had her doubts about the child and confirmed her doubts with the housekeeper, who revealed everything. Schwarzenegger has taken financial responsibility of the child “from the start and continued to provide support”.

Well, he seemingly did not have any other options if he wanted to save himself criticism and flak from all quarters for not taking care of his illegitimate son. In fact, after the whole controversy was raked up in the media, actress Bridgett Nielsen revealed that she too had an affair with Arnold and that too during the time Arnold was courting Maria. “Maybe I wouldn’t have got into it if he said ‘I’m going to marry Maria’ and this is dead serious, but he didn’t, and our affair carried on” Nielsen was quoted as saying.
Anyway, Nielsen’s revelation didn’t seem too scandalous and therefore it did not garner too much publicity. Also, it felt as if Nielsen whose career isn’t going anywhere was trying to gain some mileage through this revelation of hers. Shriver on her part had after the scandalous revelation hired a private investigator to investigate Schwarzenegger’s financial history and his personal life, including whether or not he has fathered more than one child out of wedlock.
