Movie hunk ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER has given his wife MARIA SHRIVER the perfect Valentine's Day (14FEB01) present - a house.
While other men were buying roses and chocolates, Schwarzenegger was buying his news-reader wife and family a $3.2 million (£2.2 million) neighbour's home to add on to their already expansive mansion in swanky Pacific Pallisades, California.
The Schwarzeneggers, whose new compound now covers about 5.5 acres (2.2 hectares) of land, gained an extra five bedrooms to add to their estate which now includes four buildings - some of which they use for offices and guest suites - and tennis courts. (LE/LADN/CPT)
