First the public found out that former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was ending his marriage with Maria Shriver, a Kennedy heiress, his wife of 25 years, and the mother of four of his children.

Now, it is revealed that Schwarzenegger has a love child, currently 10-years-old, with an employee who has worked in the couple's household for 20 years.

Before it all fell apart, Schwarzenegger and Shriver was one of America's darling couples.  He was the immigrant bodybuilder and actor who lived the American dream.  She was the beautiful heiress with a successful career of her own.

When Schwarzenegger became the governor of California, and Shriver the state's first lady, their marriage seemed even more magical.
