Arnold has revealed that he has a love child with a staff of his household, who retired in January 2011. “After leaving the governor's office, I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago. I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry," Los Angeles Times quoted the actor as saying.
The mystery woman said that she voluntarily retired after serving the Schwarzenegger household for 20 years. Arnold has been taking care of the child's financial responsibilities ever since the birth.
