Arnold Schwarzenegger is standing behind mistress Mildred Baena, and we don’t mean that as any sort of euphemism (not that you could blame us).

According to reports, the former Governor of California is still providing financially and emotionally support to the woman who carried his love child.

With his personal and professional life in shambles, sources close to Schwarzenegger say the 63-year-old is still close with Mildred Patricia Baena.

“Arnold has been very supportive of Mildred throughout all of this,” the source said. “The scandal going public has really taken a toll on Mildred.

Schwarzenegger, according to the source, “encourages her not to listen to what people are saying about her and just tells her to stay strong.”

Not only is Schwarzenegger there for Baena, but his greatest concern is for the 13-year-old son he fathered with her, another insider notes.

“Arnold has always taken care of her and the boy financially and he’s continued to do so generously amid this whole ordeal,” the source said.

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver announced their separation on May 8, nine days before the stunning love child scandal was exposed.

While unconfirmed, it’s been rumored that Shriver found out about the scandal, broke it off with Arnold, then leaked the story to the L.A. Times.

Hard to blame her, really, especially considering that Baena had been a member of the couple’s household staff for the past two decades.

With an estimated net worth of $200-400 million, their divorce should leave everyone involved well taken care of, but it’s still gonna get ugly.
