The woman reported to be the mother of former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's out-of-wedlock son has hired a Los Angeles law firm.
Lawyer Michael Saltz confirmed that Mildred Patricia Baena, of Bakersfield, is being represented by the firm Jacobson, Russell, Saltz & Fingerman.
The website Radar Online first reported the hire, saying it received a letter from the firm challenging "unflattering reports'' about the housekeeper.
Saltz told The Associated Press there is no plan to file litigation at this time. He declined further comment.
Schwarzenegger has acknowledged fathering a child with a former household employee.
The woman has been identified as Baena by NBC News and The New York Times. The Associated Press has not independently verified that she is the mother of Schwarzenegger's child.
