The son is also deeply passionate about bodybuilding
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s life has been marked by irony once again, thanks to his relationship with his illegitimate son, Joseph Baena, born from an affair with the family’s former housekeeper, Mildred Baena. Initially, Schwarzenegger didn’t acknowledge Joseph as his son, but their striking resemblance in both looks and lifestyle eventually became undeniable. Joseph, much like his father, is deeply passionate about bodybuilding and has built an impressive physique. He has also gained significant fame as a social media personality.
However, recent events highlight the strained relationship between Joseph and Arnold’s other children from his marriage to Maria Shriver. This was evident at the premiere of Arnold’s new Netflix film, ‘FUBER,’ where he walked the red carpet accompanied by his daughters Christina and Katherine, along with his son-in-law Chris Pratt, who is married to Arnold’s oldest daughter. In contrast, Joseph walked the red carpet alone and didn’t engage with his half-siblings publicly. Despite Schwarzenegger’s efforts to foster closeness with all five of his children, they seem reluctant to accept Joseph as part of the family.
Nevertheless, Arnold and Joseph share a strong bond. They have been spotted together in various locations across the United States, enjoying activities like bike rides, gym sessions, and attending events together. While discussions surrounding Arnold’s affair with Mildred may create tensions within the family, Arnold strives to navigate these complex family dynamics as best he can. Ultimately, he has always been there for all five of his children. Although Schwarzenegger spends significant time with Joseph, particularly due to their shared passion for bodybuilding, he continues to handle the delicate balancing act of maintaining a relationship with all his children
