TMZ has learned ... Mildred Patty Baena has a sister named Mirian who also worked as a housekeeper for Arnold and Maria Shriver for years.

When Mirian's daughter turned 15 -- Arnold shockingly agreed to pay for her "Quinceanera" ... a traditional Latina celebration. Sources tell us Arnold funded the entire event -- including limo service to and from the party venue, food, entertainment, decorations ... the works.

Arnold -- who brought his wife and their children to the celebration -- agreed to speak at the party ... and told the crowd he wanted to "take care" of the family because they had all been close for so many years.

Mildred Patty Baena was also in attendance along with her young love child ... and during the party, the little boy spent time playing with Arnold's other children.

TMZ spoke with one of the partygoers ... who tells us everyone thought it was "weird" that Arnold foot the bill ... but no one could have imagined what was really going on behind the scenes.

BTW -- the wife is usually the last to know. The older kids might have had some suspicion that something was not quite 'right' but don't think the wife knew for sure and she would of course give the husband the benefit of the doubt.

Can't get over the true ugliness of the maid and Ahnold staying in the family home.

From what I have seen over the years, an extramarital child and its mother are usually settled in a different house with appropriate support, etc.

To stay in the family home is just sick and nasty. Ahnold could not persuade her to leave or get another job?

And Maria was there? Didn't she see that Mildred's son looked like her husband? I'm baffled.

why is that shocking, he is worth 400 million..it may sound shocking for the normal folk, but it's about the equivalent of most people giving an extra 5 spot to someone we know..seriously, 20k is nothing to these peeps

I'm not sure what's worse: the fact that Arnie A-Hole was diddling the fat, ugly azz housekeeper, had an illegitimate kid with her and STILL kept her employed in the house, or the fact that he made Maria and the rest of the family attend a "Quinceanera" for these people.

Both are heinous crimes

Arnold Confessed After Maria Confronted Housekeeper About Love Child

Arnold Schwarzenegger did not voluntarily tell his wife that he fathered a love child with the housekeeper -- instead he confessed only after Maria Shriver confronted the woman, who admitted it.

Maria asked Mildred Baena if her son was fathered by Arnold and the housekeeper broke down and confessed, RadarOnline.com and Star magazine uncovered in a joint investigation.

Armed with that information, Maria confronted her husband, who also admitted it.

That’s the real story of how the love child scandal unfolded in the Schwarzenegger household.

n his only public statement about the matter, Arnold said earlier this week: "After leaving the governor's office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago.”

Those carefully chosen words don’t begin to tell the story, RadarOnline.com and Star magazine discovered.

“Maria has suspected this for a long time and she asked the housekeeper,” a source close to the situation told us. “The housekeeper admitted it.

“Maria then went to Arnold and he confessed.” He didn’t volunteer the information, and it could have remained a secret if Maria hadn’t asked.

Mildred, also known as Patty, couldn’t carry the secret any more according to another source.

“It’s amazing she didn’t crack before this,” said the source.

And Patty was NOT fired by Arnold, says another source, despite earlier reports.

“Yes, her employment ended, but it ended without animosity,” one source said.

But a friend told RadarOnlne.com: “She was upset with Arnold at the time and didn’t know what to do, she thought about going public, but it was a fleeting thought. Ultimately she didn’t want to hurt Arnold. But she also didn’t want her employment to end.

“It was a difficult situation.”

Why was her husband's name as the father on the baby's birth certificate? I don't think the baby belongs to Arnold. I think she only wants someone to pay for her house in Bakersfield. She is out to get money. She is old and ugly.

I think the baby's mama is a fat pig! I even wonder if she is here legally, of course Arnie probably fixed that too. Arnold, how embarrassing to pick a cow like you did. Your done in Hollywood and politics pal. I suggest you go back to your homeland!

^^^ Calm down, you minutemen wanna-be.

Aah-nolds Baby Mama is from GUATEMALA not Mexico. Thus, her and her family probably have VISAS.

BTW, Guatemala is a country found in Central America. Just informing those gibbons that may think Guatemala is Mexico or within than country.
