Will Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mildred Patricia Baena, whose love child marked the end of his marriage to Maria Shriver, reunite in person?

The two have kept in contact recently, according to reports, but only by telephone, and while a face-to-face reunion with their son Joseph has been discussed, they have yet to meet in person since the love child scandal broke.

It may happen soon, however.

One wonders how they kept this a secret so long.

TMZ sources say that “Both families are open to a meeting, it just hasn’t happened yet.” The reunion will take place when the time is right.

So far, Mildred Patricia “Patty” Baena hasn’t been to the Schwarzenegger home or even her own home in Bakersfield due to media attention.

Their love child was born in the late 1990s, but was only revealed recently to Shriver, who filed for divorce last week, and to the public.
