Arnold Schwarzenegger has reportedly begged estranged wife Maria Shriver for “one last chance” to save their marriage. The pair separated earlier this month after 25 years of marriage following the revelation that Schwarzenegger had fathered a secret love child with a former family housekeeper.
Author Ian Halperin, who wrote an unauthorised biography of Arnold ‘The Governator’, told website Extra: “He’s actually shed tears. He knows he’s done wrong, and he’s begging on his knees for forgiveness and one last chance. Arnold has been making calls to Maria repeatedly, asking her for one more chance.”
He went on to say that Shriver has not been responsive to the pleas, adding: “Maria wants no part of it.”
It was recently reported that Shriver plans to file for divorce from Schwarzenegger in the upcoming days. Schwarzenegger has put his film career on hold following the scandal.
Maria, who has four children with Arnold, Katherine, 21, Christina, 19, Patrick, 17, and Christopher, 13 was pictured earlier this week having lunch with Bono, lead singer of rock band.
