Early life, family, educational background
Mildred Patricia Baena, known by her nickname Patty, was born on March 1, 1961 in Guatemala of Latin ethnicity and now holds both American and Guatemalan citizenship. No details are known about the important information from her childhood, including the names of her parents and their occupations, whether she has any siblings, and even her educational background as she has kept privacy until now.
Mildred is said to be Arnold’s assistant and also worked as the famous actor’s housekeeper for over 20 years. She voluntarily retired in January 2011 after Arnold’s wife Maria Shriver confronted her directly before Christmas 2010 for suspecting Mildred and Arnold of having their love child.
Arnold became famous for his roles in some blockbuster action films such as “Conan the Barbarian” (1982), “The Terminator” (1984) and Total Recall (1990). He is also an Austrian, now American bodybuilder, and even became a politician serving as governor of California (2003 – 2011).
While Arnold’s ex-wife, Maria (the niece of the late President John F. Kennedy, and fourth cousin of tennis player Pam Shriver), is an American television journalist, known as a reporter for the National Broadcasting Company (NBC). Maria is also an author of numerous children’s books and is a philanthropist engaged in charity and volunteer work.
Following his father’s profession as a bodybuilder and actor, Joseph is an athlete, Instagram star and trainer at the same time. Joseph also appeared in the movie “Terminator 2: Bad to the Bone”, released in 2016.
Mildred married Rogelio Baena on November 14, 1987, and they had been together for over 20 years before getting divorced in 2008 due to irreconcilable differences. After retiring as a housekeeper to Arnold’s family for 20 years in January 2011, she became known to the public a few months later, in May 2011, when it was revealed that she and Arnold had a love child, Joseph, born on October 2, 1997. For fourteen years, Mildred hid the truth. She even listed her then-husband as the boy’s father on his birth certificate, but in the end, the boy’s physical similarities were too hard to ignore, as he closely resembled his real father.
In Mildred’s interview for “Hello!” magazine, she said Maria clearly suspected the truth as early as the summer of 2010 — “She’d say things like, ‘I’m here if you want to talk.’ I sensed that something was wrong. I have so much love and respect for Maria.’ She added that Maria finally confronted her right before Christmas of 2010. Mildred said she burst into tears, fell to her knees, and confessed everything. Referring to Maria, she said, “She was so strong. She cried with me and told me to get off my knees. We held each other and I told her it wasn’t Arnie’s fault, it took two.’
She also said “Hello!” magazine that Joseph didn’t know about his father’s identity until about a year ago, while Arnold herself only recently learned the full truth, she added, “I knew Arnold was the father, and maybe as Joseph got older and on him began to look like, he (Arnold) wondered. But he never said anything to me.’
Following the news, Arnold admitted that he fathered a child with the former housekeeper. He took full responsibility with the statement ‘I ask the media to respect my wife and children during this difficult time. I deserve your attention and criticism, but my family doesn’t.’
This revelation apparently led to the break-up of his long-standing marriage to Maria, who then filed for divorce in July 2011.
Mildred’s life now remains private and now lives in Bakersfield, California, apparently with her son and her boyfriend named Alex Aguilar.
News reported that Arnold and Mildred both attended Joseph’s graduation at Pepperdine University in Los Angeles, California, in April 2019, though they apparently kept their distance and took separate photos with Joseph.
Many years after Mildred’s affair with their love child Arnold, Joseph shared pictures of himself with his mother on his Instagram account. a tribute to her on Mother’s Day 2020.
Appearance, clothing style
Mildred has golden brown hair and a pair of dark brown eyes. Other information cannot be obtained as she is not active on social media platforms.
Wealth and salary
No financial information is available on Mildred’s net worth as she has not disclosed any of it, but in an interview on “ABC News,” Arnold said he will provide financially for his son, Joseph and Mildred. It was rumored that Arnold made a hefty $65,000 down payment in 2010 to help Mildred buy the Bakersfield home.
When Mildred retired as a housekeeper, she told the LA Times that she received severance pay and left on good terms with Arnold’s family. Arnold’s net worth is reportedly over $400 million, as of early 2021.
Arnold is also believed to be very generous with Joseph and give him gifts like a $30,000 Jeep, and pay the bills for the son’s college tuition. Since Joseph has started his own career, he now apparently earns a hefty amount of money, especially when he starred in the 2016 movie “Terminator 2: Back to the Bone”.
