According to US Magazine, Arnold Schwarzenegger is reportedly “enjoying his life and dating,” as per a source. The actor and former governor of California was recently seen giving a kiss on the cheek to Hungarian actress Timea Palacsik. The source mentions that Schwarzenegger and Palacsik have been in the same social circles due to their similar backgrounds but are just friends. They reportedly get along well, sharing laughter and giggles.
Schwarzenegger’s last known relationship was with physical therapist Heather Milligan, starting in 2012, though the timeline of their separation is unknown. Prior to that, he was married to Maria Shriver from 1986 to 2011, and they share four children: Katherine, Christina, Patrick, and Christopher. Schwarzenegger also has a son, Joseph, with former housekeeper Mildred “Patty” Baena, a revelation that became public during his marriage to Shriver.
In a documentary released on Netflix in May, Schwarzenegger acknowledged the pain he caused his family due to his actions, including an affair with Baena. He expressed remorse, stating, “I think that I have caused enough pain for my family because of my f–k-up. Everyone had to suffer. Maria had to suffer. The kids had to suffer. Joseph. His mother. Everyone. … I am going to have to live with it the rest of my life.”
Schwarzenegger and Shriver finalized their divorce in December 2021, six months before reaching a settlement. Despite their past, they have come together to jointly raise their children and grandchildren. In December 2020, Katherine shared that her parents enjoyed being grandparents, and the family had embraced their new roles.
