Arnold Schwarzenegger and Brigitte Nielsen

Arnold Schwarzenegger

and Brigitte Nielsen:

...In early 2011, Arnold Schwarzenegger was known for being the Terminator, the former Governor of California, and an all around family man devoted to wife Maria Shriver and their four beautiful kids. However, by May of that year, Schwarzenegger was known as something else entirely. The Los Angeles Times reported that he'd been in a long-term affair with his housekeeper, Mildred Baena, and fathered a love child. Baena gave birth to a son in October 1997. Shriver also gave birth in September 1997.

The maid wasn't Arnold's only transgression. He also stepped out with actress Brigitte Nielsen, his co-star in the 1985 film Red Sonja. Schwarzenegger admitted to having the "hot affair" in his memoir, Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story. The infidelity happened before Schwarzenegger wed Shriver. For what it's worth, he explained in his book that the affair with Nielsen made him realize how much he wanted to marry Shriver, according to the Associated
