Maria Shriver has been spotted wearing her wedding band, fuelling rumours that she may be considering reconciliation with her estranged husband Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The unmistakable rock was spotted on Ms Shriver's wedding finger, just days after Schwarzenegger made a public plea for her to take him back.
Maria filed for divorce over a year ago after it emerged that Schwarzenegger had a love child with the family maid and lied about it for years.
But just last week speaking on US talk show Hannity the "Governator" showed remorse and revealed he was confident he could win his wife back.
"It's my fault. There's no one else to blame. I screwed up badly and I take the full blame for it," he said.
"It takes a lot of time to heal those wounds and to trust each other again," he said.
"But, you know, I will make every effort."
Arnold said he was holding onto hope of rebuilding again, and if Maria's wearing of the ring which reportedly belonged to her mother who passed away two years ago might be any indication, he could have a chance.
The couple has been married for 25 years and they have four children together.
"For me, it's important to kind of rebuild again, get the trust back with the kids, with my wife," Arnie said.
As well as using his memoir as an appeal to his family, Arnie has also made an effort to quall controversy, using his book to put to rest an old rumour that he once said he admired Hitler.
During the filming of the 1977 film Pumping Iron, the action star allegedly said, "I admired Hitler, for instance, because he came from being a little man with almost no formal education, up to power."
But in his memoir, Arnie recalls the conversation, excusing his comments and refining what it was he "admired" about the dictator.
"I philosophised that only a few men are born to lead, while the rest of humanity is born to follow, and went from that into discussing history's great conquerors and dictators," he writes in Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story.
"I admired Hitler's speaking ability, though not what he did with it."
