Are Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver getting back together?

The pair have been spotted wearing their wedding rings. They separated last year after it emerged Schwarzenegger had fathered a lovechild with the couple’s housekeeper.

RUMOURS ABOUND THAT Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver may have reconciled as both the former California Governor and the best-selling author were recently spotted out and about wearing their wedding rings

The couple split last year with Shriver filing for divorce in July after it emerged that Schwarzenegger, the movie star turned politician, had fathered a child with one of the couple’s household staff.

At the time Shriver cited the oft-quoted “irreconcilable differences”.

But now The Sun reports that both have been snapped over the festive period wearing their wedding bands. It is also claimed that Schwarzenegger spent Christmas with Shriver and the couple’s three children.

The Daily Mail has pictures of Arnie, 64, wearing his wedding band while enjoying an outdoor coffee with friends in Sun Valley, Idaho and says that the couple “had a really nice time” over the holiday period.

Before Christmas, TMZ reckoned that Shriver is torn over a divorce, partly because of her strong religious beliefs that do not include divorce.

However,  the Daily Mail notes that Shriver is under pressure from her cousin Caroline Kennedy, daughter of former US president John F Kennedy, who has reportedly been very vocal in her desire for the divorce to go through.
