In the book, Arnold Scwarzenegger admits that he tried at first to cover up the love child story with lies, ultimately realizing they wouldn’t work. Eventually Arnold admitted to supporting the child while calling his actions a big mistakes.
Arnold did not have much of a leg to stand on in his attempts to brush the issue under the table; according to the actor, the maid had already told his wife about the love child.
