Shriver questioned Mildred about the child’s paternity who confessed it was the superstar actor. The two split not long after.
“It’s a very tough situation for [Joseph],” the “Commando” star previously shared, the outlet noted. “It’s a very tough situation for my kids.”
“Very tough situation for my family,” he added. “It was tough for everybody. But it has happened and now we have to figure it out, right?”
