Separated couple fuel rumours they are giving their marriage another go
As word spreads that divorcing couple Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver are having second thoughts, both have been spotted stepping out with their wedding rings on.
When the sensational news broke earlier this year that Arnold had fathered a secret love child with his mistress housekeeper over a decade ago, his wife of 25 years Maria Shriver immediately began divorce proceedings.
But it appears that Maria may be having second thoughts because she has been photographed out and about in California wearing her wedding ring and so has estranged husband Arnold.
Sources say that although Maria, who is a devout Roman Catholic, has hired leading divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, whose former clients include Mel Gibson's wife Robyn and Angelina Jolie, she doesn't want a divorce because her religious beliefs do not condone it.
Arnold and Maria are believed to have enjoyed a happy Christmas together with their children Katherine, 22, Christina, 20, Patrick, 17 and Christopher, 14.
The shamed actor and his affair with housekeeper Mildred Baena resulted in the birth of his love child, Joseph, who born just five days after his son Christopher with Maria in 1997.
