    At times, the marriage of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver looked like a fairy tale come true. 

(CBS/AP) - Two days after Hollywood icon and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger admitted that he had fathered a love child with a member of his household staff, media reports have named the woman as housekeeper Mildred Baena.

According to ABC News, Baena, known as Patty, had worked for Schwarzenegger as an assistant and housekeeeper for more than 20 years.

According to RadarOnline.com, Baena threatened to go public with the news that she had given birth to Schwarzenegger's son 14 years ago, and that prompted the actor's public admission.

Schwarzenegger and Shriver jointly announced May 9 that they were splitting up after 25 years of marriage. Yet, Shriver moved out of the family's Brentwood mansion earlier in the year after Schwarzenegger acknowledged the child is his, The Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.

"After leaving the governor's office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago," Schwarzenegger told the Times in a statement that also was sent to The Associated Press early Tuesday. "I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry."
