Arnold Schwarzenegger has admitted to fathering a child more than a decade ago with a longtime member of his household staff. When Schwarzenegger was first questioned by the Los Angeles Times about possibly having a child out of his marriage, he acknowledged in a statement that only after he left the governor’s office did he tell “[his] wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago” before first running for public office.

“I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family,” the statement went on to say. “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.” The statement concluded, “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. ”

Just last week, Schwarzenegger and wife Maria Shriver announced they had separated after 25 years of marriage and four kids together. The woman who had Schwarzenegger’s child, retired earlier this year after working for the family for 20 years. This is a big scandal to come to light, even for politics. What do you think of this bombshell?
