Mildred Baena’s first interview is out, and in it, she reveals that she never actually came clean to Arnold Schwarzenegger about the child they had together, People reports. Though she’s not sure of Schwarzenegger’s reaction to the news that he has a 13-year-old son, Baena did reveal to Hello! how someone else reacted: Maria Shriver. Baena admitted the truth after Shriver and others in the household began to notice Joseph’s strong resemblance to Arnold.
“She would say things like, ‘I’m here if you need to talk,’” Baena says. “Finally, she asked point blank.” When Baena confessed and fell to her knees crying, Shriver “was so strong. She cried with me and told me to get off my knees. We held each other and I told her it wasn’t Arnie’s fault, that it takes two.” As for Baena’s son, he had a much less emotional reaction to the news: He simply said, “Cool!”
