"The minute we sat down, the therapist turned to me and said, 'Maria wanted to come here today and to ask about a child— whether you fathered a child with your housekeeper Mildred.' I told the therapist, 'It's true'," he said.

He revealed that he got intimate with Baena (housekeeper) while his family were away on holiday and he was stuck in California working on Batman and Robin in 1996.

In the book Schwarzenegger has also mentioned about his journey from a rural town in Austria to becoming a Mr Universe bodybuilder, Hollywood superstar and powerful politician.
