Arnold Schwarzenegger's son Patrick Schwarzenegger has reacted to news that his father has a secret child. Arnold Schwarzenegger told the Los Angeles Times on Monday (16th May 2011) that he fathered a child with a member of his household staff 10 years ago.
Despite the shocking revelations, Arnold's 17-year-old son Patrick says he is putting his family first, telling followers on his Twitter page, "Some days you feel like sh*t, some days you want to quit and just be normal for a bit, yet I love my family till death do us apart. #family". Arnold and his wife Maria Shriver announced their separation after 25 years of marriage earlier this month. Patrick took to his Twitter page on 10th May 2011 to thank his followers for their understanding, saying, "Appreciate all your messages. Small speed bump in life, luckily we own hummers, we will cruise right over it. All will be okay. #peace." Patrick is one of Arnold and Maria's four children together. He is the brother of 21-year-old Katherine, 19-year-old Christina and 13-year-old Christopher.
Arnold Schwarzenegger confirmed that he has financially supported his mystery child since the birth 10 years ago. It is not currently clear what kind of relationship the former Governor has with his fifth child.
