(Newser) – October 1997 saw a bumper crop of Schwarzeneggers, according to birth records obtained by CNN. The records reveal that Arnold Schwarzenegger's youngest son with Maria Shriver was born within days of the child he reportedly fathered with the family housekeeper, identified as Mildred Baena. The birth certificate for Baena's son lists the man she was married to at the time as the father. The couple divorced a few weeks after the birth.

A source close to Schwarzenegger says that recent days have been "very hard" on the former governor and he is "doing everything he can to take full responsibility to take all of the spotlight off his children and wife." Schwarzenegger still plans to shoot drama Cry Macho this summer but he has put two other movie projects on hold, the source says. Shriver, meanwhile, has hired prominent Los Angeles divorce attorney Laura Wasser, People reports. (Click to read about the dig Shriver made at Arnold on Tuesday.)
