When it comes to celebrities and their families, nannies are usually part of the picture. But sometimes the lines get blurred, especially since they live with the stars, go on vacation with them, and care for their children like they’re their own.
You may have heard of a celebrity cheating with the nanny (we’re looking at you, Ben Affleck!), but it’s not always the nanny who catches their eye. There are also assistants, bodyguards, basically any employee that happens to be a trusted figure who has gotten too close. But don’t blame them. They may be seen as the homewrecker but in these cases, it’s the stars who made the choice. The wrong choice. That cost them their relationship.

It’s one thing to cheat with the nanny. It’s another to knock her up around the same time you knocked up your wife. But that was the case for Arnie, Maria Shriver and nanny Mildred Baena, who gave birth to son Joseph ONE WEEK after Shriver had son Christopher. Maybe the worst.
