Regardless of the BOMBSHELL news Arnold Schwarzenegger dropped last week, Maria Shriver is being an upstanding mother and actually encouraging her kids to forgive their dad!
We can't say we're that surprised because unlike Arnold's behavior that caused this disaster, Maria has been inspiringly classy.
A source close to her family has said, "As hurt as she may be, she will encourage them to forgive their father."
Very admirable! We can't imagine how Katherine, Christina, Patrick, and Christopher are feeling right now, but at least they have a strong mother to hep guide them through the unfortunate circumstances.
The source continued to say that "both Arnold and Maria want to make sure they are being good parents above everything".
Kids should definitely come first and we hope they continue to follow this philosophy throughout the divorce proceedings.
