Maria Shriver

Maria Shriver appears unrecognisable while visiting her new Santa Monica home.

While out and about over the weekend, Maria Shriver appeared unrecognisable.

The former California first lady was photographed in Santa Monica, Calif., sporting a new look and appearing to be makeup-free.

In photos obtained exclusively by Page Six, the 66-year-old was seen walking to her car after stopping by the construction site where she is building a new home.

While Shriver appeared to be in good spirits, her face appeared to be different than in recent years.

The late President John F. Kennedy’s niece dressed down in black leggings, a purple T-shirt, and grey sneakers.

Shriver wore a claw clip to keep her long brunette hair out of her face as she smiled at photographers.

The former journalist slung two brown leather bags over her shoulder, carrying floorplans for her new home while keeping a low profile.

Shriver divorced ex-husband Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2011 after discovering the “Terminator” star, 75, had conceived a child with the family’s housekeeper Mildred Baena 15 years before.

The son Joseph’s striking resemblance to Arnold Schwarzenegger prompted Shriver to doubt his paternity, forcing Baena to reveal the truth.

Shriver filed for divorce shortly after, but it took nearly a decade to be finalised.

Court papers revealed in December 2021 that the former couple agreed to split their estimated $400 million evenly. 4jDTvZxU
