Maria Shriver has issued a brief statement published by People.com regarding the news that her now-estranged husband Arnold Schwarzenegger admitted he fathered a child out of wedlock a decade ago. Says Shriver:

"This is a painful and heartbreaking time. As a mother, my concern is for the children. I ask for compassion, respect and privacy as my children and I try to rebuild our lives and heal. I will have no further comment."
