And now it all comes full circle.

The reason behind Arnold Schwarzenegger’s shocking separation from his wife Maria Shriver finally makes sense after “The Sperminator Terminator” revealed that he fathered a secret lovechild from an affair with a household worker over a decade ago according to People. Check out Arnold’s statement admitting to the adulterous act below:

“After leaving the governor’s office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago. 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.”

He added: “I ask that the media respect my wife and children through this extremely difficult time,” the statement concluded. “While I deserve your attention and criticism, my family does not. “

Schwarzenegger also said he financially provided for the child. Shriver’s spokesman told PEOPLE the former first lady, 55, had no comment. Schwarzenegger and Shriver have four children together.
