25. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mildred Baena
The actor and former governor has been married to Maria Shriver for over 25 years, but not without scandal. It was revealed that Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered a son with their maid, Mildred Baena. The son reportedly looked so much like his father that Shriver was suspicious.
“Maria would ask if I needed to talk to her,” said Baena according to People Magazine, “and I kept saying no. Finally, she asked point blank. Maria asked me directly if Joseph was Arnold’s son, and I just broke down. I dropped to my knees and I was crying, saying that yes he was and I was so sorry.”
The married couple separated in 2011, but are still married to this day.
