Arnold Schwarzenegger sat down with "60 Minutes" to give his first interview since it was revealed that he cheated on wife Maria Shriver with their housekeeper, and fathered her child.

Arnold said in the interview that it didn't occur to him that it was his kid until the boy was a few years older, and "he started looking like me." He added that he didn't tell Shriver about the child because he wanted to keep the affair "under wraps," though acknowledged it was "the stupidest thing I've done in the whole relationship."
