I grew up watching Arnold Schwarzenegger's action movies my entire childhood, so I've followed his career very closely.

It's definitely not what you expect from an Austrian bodybuilder who could barely speak English when he moved to America.

After becoming a movie star and successful businessman, Schwarzenegger set his sights on politics and became the governor of California.

But the day after he left office, a massive scandal broke that threatened to overshadow his entire career, and ended his 25-year marriage.

The Affair

As you may remember, Schwarzenegger married into a political dynasty.

His wife, journalist and TV producer Maria Shriver, is President John F. Kennedy's niece.

But during his marriage to Shriver, Schwarzenegger was living a double life.

The actor and his longtime housekeeper, Mildred "Patty" Baena, were having an affair.

The relationship went unnoticed by Shriver for years, until questions were raised about Baena's teenage son, Joseph.

The Love Child

Joseph was born just a week after Arnold's youngest child with Shriver, Christopher.

For the first decade of his life, it seems that no one suspected Schwarzenegger was Joseph's father.

But when he became a teenager, the resemblance was impossible to deny.

Baena told Hello magazine that "people in the house started whispering about how much they looked like each other.”

Shriver finally confronted the housekeeper in 2010, and Baena couldn't deny it any longer.

“Maria asked me directly if Joseph was Arnold’s son, and I just broke down. I dropped to my knees and I was crying, saying that yes he was and I was so sorry."

But incredibly, Shriver and Baena didn't confront Schwarzenegger about the affair right away.
