Maria Shriver initially had no comment on husband Arnold Schwarzenegger’s affair and secret child, but the media must have hounded her enough to get a statement.
Maria Shriver did not comment directly on the scandal, nor make mention of Arnold’s affair or child, but did note that her focus is on her children at this time.
In a statement to People.com, Shriver says:
“This is a painful and heartbreaking time. As a mother, my concern is for the children. I ask for compassion, respect and privacy as my children and I try to rebuild our lives and heal. I will have no further comment.”
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver were married for 25 years and have four children. Find out the full scoop on Arnold Schwarzenegger’s affair and love child – a secret he kept for 10 years.
I still can’t get my head around how you would deal with your husband cheating on you with a household staff person – Maria and her children both knew this person and the kids likely played with their half-sibling.
Best wishes to Maria and her children. She is a strong woman and will overcome this scandal. Shame on you, Arnold.
