A love affair with Marie Shriver amidst her marriage to Arnold Schwarzenegger
Maria Shriver was the one he had dated after a long time of being divorced. She is Arnold Schwarzenegger’s ex-wife, whom she split up in 2011 after he revealed having cheated on her and fathering a son with his maid, Mildred Baena.
The political strategist had worked for Arnold as a lead campaign strategist for the re-election of the California governorship. He was rumored to be dating her after her divorce from her ex-husband.
In November 2013, they were seen attending Bobby Kennedy and Cheryl Hines’ wedding together. At the event, he got introduced to his partner’s family.
They have been publicly dating since 2013, but Radar Online revealed that a source divulged that they had been having an affair for a long time before Arnold’s cheating issue came up. The staff would notice how they flaunted their flirtations in front of them when Arnold was away.
When Arnold made revelations in 2011, the source had remembered how Dowd and Shriver met in a hotel in 2007, meaning to say that the affair had gone on long before then. After people learned about their long-time experience before the divorce, their thoughts changed compared to the heavy criticism Arnold took.
However, Maria said she hinted she was single on the Todas Show of NBC News in May of 2017. The reason for their break-up has not been shared since.
