It was Maria Shriver's camp who first leaked the story of Arnold Schwarzenegger's affair and child with Mildred Patricia Baena, according to new reports.
Maria's own people did so because she was so angry at Arnold when she found out about his out-of-wedlock child, she wanted to expose him herself.
When Maria found out that Arnold fathered Mildred Patty Baena's son, she was "hysterical" and even wanted to hold a press conference regarding it.
Shriver's friends talked her off a ledge and a plan was hatched to leak the details to the L.A. Times and TMZ, who blew the lid off the story last week.
Maria found out about the baby in late April or very early May. The boy is now a teenager. Mildred Baena worked for the family for around 20 years.
Reports say Maria was miserable in her marriage and wanted out for a long time before separating from Arnold, her husband of 25 years, this spring.
