After it was announced that Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered a child with a member of his household staff, the identity of the mother has been revealed, according to reports.
Online celebrity news and gossip website Radar Online, in a joint investigation with Star Magazine, first reported late Tuesday that her identity is Mildred Baena, 50, who worked as a housekeeper for Schwarzenegger, citing two unidentified sources. Shortly thereafter, TMZ reported.
Both news outlets initially used the same photographs, obscuring the face of the child.
TMZ reported that her full name is Mildred Patricia Baena and goes by the name Patty.
The New York Times reported that Baena's son is believed to be as old as 14. She worked as a housekeeper and an assistant in Schwarzenegger's household for more than 20 years, according to reports from ABC News. Her duties included cleaning, laundry, cooking and other chores.
She retired from her job in January, around the same time Schwarzenegger's term as governor of California was over. This was also the time Schwarzenegger told Shriver about the out of wedlock child. Schwarzenegger and Shriver announced their separation last week, after 25 years of marriage.
Baena also has a MySpace page which describes her as a proud parent and says she is dating or searching for a serious relationship.
She's the one, a source old Radar Online.
They have a son together, the site said, citing another source.
Sources told TMZ that in the late 90's she began to pursue Arnold. She told friends that they would have unprotected sex during the day at the house, according to the report. She never slept overnight at the house and was not caught, according to the report.
She is reportedly living three hours away from Los Angeles with the child, who is about 10 years old.
