We now know one of the main reasons Maria Shriver left her husband of 20 years; for fathering a child with a house worker of the family more than a decade ago!
The house worker stopped working for the family back in January and it seems that is when Shriver found out. According to the L.A. Times, that is when Shriver left the home they shared together after he admitted the kid was his.
When the Times approached Arnold about the report, he admitted it and gave them an exclusive quote:
"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."
"I ask that the media respect my wife and children through this extremely difficult time," "While I deserve your attention and criticism, my family does not. "
Arnold took financial responsibility for the child from the start and has continued to pay child support.
Maria has made it clear that although Arnold says he hopes for reconciliation, she has been unhappy with Arnold for years and made the move to leave him after both her parents passed away. Her mother passed away last year and her father passed away in January, shortly before she left Arnold.-Dr.FB
