Actor, former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger undergoes emergency heart surgery

Actor, former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger undergoes emergency heart surgery

Schwarzenegger is recovering in a Los Angeles hospital after undergoing heart surgery. The surgery team on standby were able to step in and perform open-heart surgery when complications occur during the procedure, the actor's rep told People.

The Austrian-born former bodybuilder was voted in as governor of California in a historic 2003 recall vote but proved the win was no fluke by routing opponent Phil Angelides to get re-elected.

The operation lasted several hours and came after he was getting a catheter valve replaced on Thursday, according to the celebrity website TMZ.

Since then, he has mixed acting and politics. In 1997 too, Arnie had to be operated upon to correct a congenital heart valve condition from which he made a full recovery.

He recently told Australian TV show The Project that despite being 70-years-old, he doesn't feel that number represents his health, saying: "I don't even think that I'm 70, I know I'm 70, but so what?" Indeed, back in 1999, Schwarzenegger successfully sued a German doctor who predicted that steroids would cause him an early death, also gaining a settlement from tabloid Globe, which ran an article implying something similar. "Let's change and let's go and be more open and go back to this kind of like big tent idea of Ronald Reagan".

Arnold Schwarzenegger went under the knife to have a valve in his heart replaced, Us Weekly can confirm. The operation took place in Mexico.

He and Shriver split in 2011 after 25 years of marriage. Just a few days later, Schwarzenegger admitted fathering a love child with a member of their house staff, Mildred Patricia Baena, 14 years prior.

Arnold and Maria have four children together: Katherine, 28, Christina, 27, Patrick, 24, and Christoper, 21.
