News that the high-profile former first couple of California was splitting last week came as a surprise. What would cause ex-Gov. and action star Arnold Schwarzenegger and his journalist wife, Kennedy scion Maria Shriver, to separate after 25 years together?
As everyone knows now, the reason was a child. Specifically, a child that Schwarzenegger fathered with as an unnamed staffer who'd been with the family for 20 years. The staffer parted company from them in January; the child is thought to be 10 or 11 years old.
