Arnold Schwarzenegger Admits Fathering Child Outside Marriage

schwarzenegger2008_getty.jpgThe reason Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver split up has finally come into focus: The former governor fathered a child with a member of their household staff.

"After leaving the governor's office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago," Schwarzenegger said in a statement to the Los Angeles Times. "I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. 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."
