By now, everyone knows that Arnold Schwarzenegger knocked up his maid, Mildred Patricia Baena, 10 years ago. What everyone might not know is that both Mildred and Maria Shriver were pregnant at the same time. Not only that, their two kids were born less than a week apart. Maria’s son Christopher was born September 27, 1997. Mildred’s son was born October 2, 1997.
If that wasn’t awkward enough, in what could be a scene ripped straight from a Hollywood comedy, Maria Shriver used to joke that her housekeeper’s son looked exactly like Arnold but never thought anything of it.
“Maria, the family and even other members of the staff joked around from time to time that Mildred’s kid looked like Arnold,”
“Looking back on those jokes now…it’s like, hindsight is always 20/20,” the insider explains, adding, “It was if it was so obvious they looked alike, that it was just a coincidence and something to be joked about.”
Well, at least this explains why Arnold nervously laughed, “huh huh huh huh,” whenever Maria brought it up. In hindsight, Maria should have caught on when that kid started telling everyone to “get to the choppa.”
