MILDRED PATRICIA BAENA, a housekeeper and assistant from California, has been revealed as the mother of Arnold Schwarzenegger's 'secret' fifth child. Interest in MILDRED PATRICIA BAENA has become rife, and a series of pictures featuring her and Schwarzenegger's son have begun circulating the web.

According to, the young boy looks "strikingly" similar to Arnold Schwarzenegger, with his features looking "eerily" like his fathers. Mildred Patricia, also known as 'Patty', worked for the actor's family for 20 years, before retiring in January 2011. She now lives with her son and three other children in a comfortable 4 bedroom house outside of Los Angeles. According to E! Online, Baena initially told her friends, family and employers that her then-husband was the father of the child, a man she divorced in 2008. The revelation has resulted in Schwarzenegger splitting from his wife of 25 years, Maria Shriver. The former NBC correspondent has requested privacy for herself and her children, but she put on a brave face while making an appearance in Chicago for Oprah Winfrey's farewell tribute show yesterday (17th May 2011).

MILDRED PATRICIA BAENA worked closely with the Schwarzenegger family during the peak of Arnold's Hollywood career and throughout his spell as Governor of California. Her household duties included cleaning, cooking and doing the laundry.
