Estranged couple Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver reunited to celebrate the former California governor's 64th birthday, despite having filed for divorce.
The pair and their sons Patrick, 17, and Christopher, 13, met for lunch at Barney's on Saturday in Beverly Hills, California, reported Us magazine.
Schwarzenegger and Shriver, 55, were seen in the same car arriving at the restaurant. An onlooker said there didn't seem to be "any tension" between the exes. The group -including Christopher, who was just released from the hospital on Tuesday after a surfing accident - "seemed relaxed."
Schwarzenegger "smiled a lot," and it seemed "pretty normal" for the family to be together. Shriver apparently footed the bill.
"Maria grabbed for it. She was already pulling out her wallet and gave her credit card [to the waiter]. While she gave him the card, she also ordered Arnold an espresso," the onlooker said.
The chef even brought out a special treat for the birthday guy - a Tiramisu on the house. He and his sons took a few bites before leaving together. He said "Bye, darling" to Shriver.
