Arnold Schwarzenegger has come clean about fathering a lovechild with his housekeeper Mildred Baena in his new memoir 'Total Recall.'

The 'Terminator' star insists that he never paid her to keep quiet.

"I don't think that Mildred was at all into talking. Mildred is a good person. She was not out to get me or to take advantage," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying on '60 Minutes' which aired on Sunday.

The former governor of California revealed that he never spoke to the housekeeper about the fact that he was the father of her son Joseph.

Instead, he gave her money to provide for the boy, who is now aged 15, when he realised Joseph bore a resemblance to him.

"It just appeared to me there was something off, that he started looking like me. So that's when I kind of got it, it was never discussed. But, I mean, I put the things together here," he said.

He stated that he never asked Baena if he was the father.

"I felt like that I should take on the responsibility of taking care of him and her. And so I started taking care of Joseph financially," he added.

It seems there was an unspoken agreement between the former lovers.

"I gave it to her and she knew what it was about," he said.

He said that after it clicked that Joseph was his son, he wanted the pair to stay in the household. (ANI)
