SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – New details have surfaced about the woman who gave birth to former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s love child.

Patricia Baena was Schwarzenegger’s longtime housekeeper and the woman with whom he fathered a child several years before his election — a secret they both kept for nearly 14 years.

A birth certificate has surfaced showing the child, a boy, was born in October 1997 — just a week after Shriver gave birth to their youngest son, Christopher. Baena got divorced less than a month later. Settlement papers reveal she claimed she and her husband had no children.

Less than a week after the boy’s birth, Maria Shriver delivered the couple’s youngest son, Christopher. Both women were pregnant at the same time – in the same house.

Schwarzenegger has been supporting the teenager he fathered with Baena. The boy lives with his mother in a four bedroom home in Bakersfield. The former governor spent $270,000 for the home last July.

Celebrity gossip website TMZ reported Thursday that before she was fired, Baena would sometimes dress in Shriver’s clothing, wear her jewelry, and even seek the former First Lady’s love advice.

Meanwhile, Maria Shriver has hired a top divorce lawyer, but hasn’t decided yet whether she wants to divorce Schwarzenegger, according to People magazine.

It quotes sources close to Shriver as saying Laura Wasser, described as a “prominent Los Angeles family law attorney,” is representing Shriver.

“Maria hasn’t decided yet if she wants to end her marriage,” People quotes one source as saying. Wasser was hired before word of Schwarzenegger’s affair became public, People adds.

Also Thursday, Schwarzenegger asked his talent agency to put all of his pending entertainment projects on hold as he focuses on his personal life.

A statement from Schwarzenegger’s office Thursday says former “Terminator” star has asked Creative Artists Agency to put all of his motion picture projects currently under way or being negotiated on hold until further notice.

“Governor Schwarzenegger is focusing on personal matters and is not willing to commit to any production schedules or timelines.

This includes Cry Macho, The Terminator franchise and other projects under consideration. We will resume discussions when Governor Schwarzenegger decides.” the statement said.

    I doubt if she fits in her clothes now! I hope Marie divorces this pig right away! I’m happy the son Patrick has had his last name changed to Shriver! Hope the rest of the kids do the same and the love child takes Arnie’s name! That should give his ego a little kick!

    I do agree on Bloodhounds and Maria should divorce that lying loser right away. I would not be surprised if our tax money went to his infidelity ways that is why the state of California went on deficit.

    What a pity..disgusting…

    However, I don’t understand one thing. There are news report that Aronld’s son with Baena (staff woman) has Arnold’s looks, then how come in more than a decade no one raised a doubt. Is Maria so naive?

    The boy doesn’t really look like his (so called) father.
    I think the baby mama is so clever. She saw a opportunity and grabbed it. Just look at her face. She planned it, and had no remorse in wrecking a family, that by the way, gave her a living. Shame on her too.

    The Sperminator can now buy 2 of the same birthday gifts at the same time! All reality TV needs is an outrageous episode where both boys have a joint sweet 16 birthday party.
