Arnold Schwarzenegger and Heather Milligan were spotted kissing after spending a romantic evening out at dinner Friday. Though the former California governor has been spotted with Milligan before, the date comes after rumors of reconciliation with his estranged wife, Maria Shriver.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Heather Milligan, a physical therapist, went out to dine at Fig in the Fairmont Hotel in Santa Monica, Calif. After the evening drew to a close, the "Terminator" actor walked Milligan to her SUV and gave her a parting kiss. They both arrived and left separately, but the romance most likely ends the idea that Schwarzenegger and Shriver will rebuild their family.
After the revelation that Schwarzenegger had fathered a child with his housekeeper, Mildred Baena, Shriver filed for divorce. However, the divorce has yet to be finalized since the filing in July 2011, and last October, Schwarzenegger proclaimed publicly that he wanted his wife back.
"It was a situation where I couldn't even blame anybody else but myself, because my wife was a fantastic wife. She was a great friend, she was a great adviser, everything, great mother," he told Sean Hannity on Fox News while promoting his book "Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story."
"I mean, my kids were fantastic. The thing that I cherished the most, you know, I destroyed by some stupid things that I've done," Schwarzenegger continued. "For me, it's important to kind of rebuild again, get the trust back with the kids, with my wife."
In May of this year, he and Shriver reunited for their daughter Christina's graduation from Georgetown, where photos were taken of Schwarzenegger holding his estranged wife closely. The pictures ignited the reconciliation rumors once again, but it seems they could cool now that Milligan is in the picture.
"Maria is more amenable to divorce after hearing Arnold has a girlfriend," a source told TMZ.
