It wasn't until a week ago, when Arnold Schwarzenegger announced that he had fathered a love child with a household staff member, that Rogelio discovered the truth.
Breaking his silence, Rogelio tells Entertainment Tonight that the situation was a "betrayal" and that he had always considered Schwarzenegger ? who employed Patty for 20 years ? a "hero."
In the interview airing Tuesday, Rogelio says he has a message for the boy: "I am your father. That's all."
It was not immediately clear how much interaction Rogelio has had with the boy. According to divorce papers, Rogelio and Mildred ? married for 10 years ? split in 1997 just weeks after the child's birth, and that Mildred filed for divorce in 2008.
