Arnold's Love Child

Spitting Image

5/18/2011 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained lots of information -- as well as photos -- of the boy Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered out of wedlock -- and he looks shockingly like Arnold himself.

Arnold Love Child

The mother -- Mildred Patricia Baena (she goes by Patty) -- was a housekeeper/assistant for the family for more than 20 years. Her jobs included cleaning, laundry, cooking and other chores.

Sources tell TMZ -- in the late '90s Patty began to "pursue Arnold."  She told friends they would have unprotected sex during the day at the house.  Patty never slept overnight at the house and no one ever caught them in the act.

We're told when she became pregnant, she didn't tell Arnold he was the father. Arnold didn't learn he was the daddy until the boy was a toddler.

Patty -- who made $1,200 a week -- was treated well by Arnold once he found out. Sources say Arnold was always "generous."

Patty -- who has recently retired -- now lives in a 4 bedroom house with a pool, several hours outside of L.A. with the boy and her 3 other kids.

We are not revealing the identity of the boy, however his features are eerily like Arnold's.  We have various pictures of him at various ages (he's now in his early teens) and each picture shows striking similarities, especially the mouth and teeth.

Does anyone know if she even speaks english?? Oh never mind, she spoke the right language for Arnold then set him up for her final shot at a huge payday before "retiring." Can anyone afford to retire? Arnold's maid can.

The part where she didn't tell Arnold about the child until the boy was a toddler speaks volumes about her planning the whole thing in advance. What does her husband have to say about the whole thing??

America, the land of "opportunists" and no wonder we're in the mess we're in.

If she was married to her husband when this child was born then the child is legally his child.


Whoever the legal father is i hope he sues the crap out of Arnold.

Arnold Schwarzenegger was a leading Hollywood star. At his zenith, he was making $25 million a picture plus profit.

And this lady was the one he had a kid with? I don't understand. He probably could have f'ed any hot chick in the world, and he had ongoing sex with this homely women?

It isn't an either or proposition Mav, rumors are Arnie was playing the field and having his way with any woman he wants long before he got married. He just never stopped. The reason he ended up knocking her up is he'll bang pretty much anything and it was convenient to nail her when he was home.

How is this exclusive? Before visiting TMZ, I visited a very very Spanish-language forum from a very popular Spanish-language network, and someone uploaded the uncensored pictures. And a user did a side-by-side comparison of son and child, and the child looks like Arnold. Oh, and there are more pictures of the mother.

Poor kid. No need to censor them, people will dig deep to see his face, like a guest said here.

That kid totally is a product of Arnold's Baby Batter.

The undoctored pictures are on myspace and you can find them in like 2 seconds

@ HumanNature, her husband on the other hand just might have excellent grounds to sue the crap out of Arnie. I've got a feeling he was duped big time.

I'd like to say thanks for not showing the child's face. There's going to be so much about to happen to him and not having his identity im sure will make it a little easier. He's too young to have the camera's in his face even if he does look like Arnold.

Shame on you TMZ for posting this. Though the kids face is blurred people will recognize his mother and he will be hounded. Its not fair to him. You should have put more thought into posting those photos.

Seriously, who cares!! Further, Arnold isn't the first & won't be the last... The only reason this is 'considered' a big deal by the media is that Arnold is a public figure for as we all know this type of thing happens every day with many relationships..... Maria knew what she was getting into when she married him for she lived in the world of the Kennedy men who were known for infidelity, wives aware & tolerated it.... To each their own.......
I am surprised that TMZ states their precaution in protecting the boy's identity by blurring his face, when in fact they plaster the mother's photo & obviously it's just a matter of putting 2 + 2 together.... Come on TMZ, we're not that naive & know you aren't protecting anyone.... Psst, I won't tell anyone we figured your little sham out, ohhh, wait... I just did......:) Again, to each their own......

U suck. Lots of families have help and staff to cook, clean and help with the children. It doesn't mean the wife isn't doing her job. Maria is a professional college educated woman. Did Ahnold even go to college. No he was just a bodybuilder and then starred in action flicks. The latter leaves you a lot of time off. I bet Maria was technically working more then Arnold. Why couldn't HE take care of the kids and the cleaning???? Clearly they both felt they needed staff in their home. That is not excuse to cheat!

Jay you r a sexist jerk!!!!

Come on TMZ. The kid hasn't done anything wrong and doesn't deserve to have photos circulated EVEN if the face is smudged. Poor taste.

You should leave this kid and his family alone. Saying that you won't show the kid's face but showing his mother's face is pure irony and extremely disrespecful. You're still in possession of the kid's pictures and along the way someone will know who he is. This kid was living with his siblings and parents a norma life and i don't think that's gonna happen any more. That Schwarzenegger is a public persona doesn't mean this kid should be in the spot light as well. Shame on you for ignoring their right to have some privacy in this way. I think you are excellent but this is just shameful.

It's amazing the mom hasn't taken down the pics off her myspace page. I just went there, typed in her name and they are indeed right from there.
