Arnold Schwarzenegger has admitted fathering a child out of wedlock with a member of his household staff ten years ago, while married to Maria Shriver... just before he ran to unseat Gov. Gray Davis.
Certainly, this must have been a traumatic experience... finding out he's going to be a father, arranging for the birth, keeping the birth-mother working in his household for the next ten years-plus, not telling his wife, telling his wife, telling us...
Then again, this is a guy who ought to be used to trauma. He's slain just about the entire population of California in his movies - and came close in real life. But no matter how dire or horrifying the situation, Ahnold is never at a loss for a quip. In fact, he's got a memorable catchphrase or two in just about every film.
And as it turns out, he's no different in real life. So here's...
