Arnold Schwarzenegger has lived an eventful and long life. He’s 74 years old and has worked as a bodybuilder, a well-known actor, and a politician. When he starred in “Conan the Barbarian” in 1982, the larger-than-life hero shot to Hollywood prominence. Schwarzenegger is most recognized for his role as Arnold Schwarzenegger in the “Terminator” film series. “Predator,” “The Running Man,” and “Total Recall” are among his other well-known flicks.
In 1947, Arnold Schwarzenegger was born in allied-occupied Austria. He began lifting weights at the age of 15, and at the age of 20, he won the Mr. Universe competition. He won the Mr. Olympia title seven times after that. In the field of bodybuilding, Arnold Schwarzenegger is still revered, and the Arnold Sports Festival is named after him. After Mr. Olympia, it is regarded as the most prestigious bodybuilding competition.
In November 2003, the action star was elected governor of California, succeeding Gray Davis, who had been recalled. In 2006, Schwarzenegger was re-elected governor, and he served until his tenure ended in 2011. He returned to performing after that and has also worked as a film producer, author, and businessman.
Schwarzenegger had an affair with his housemaid in 1997 and fathered a son, it was revealed in 2011. Joseph Baena is the name of the child who was forced into the spotlight when he was still a child. Schwarzenegger’s wife, Maria Shriver, divorced him as a result of the discovery, and their divorce was formalized in 2021. Continue reading to learn more about Baena’s work and his father’s connection.
Since Baena entered Schwarzenegger’s life, he has tried his hardest to be a good parent, and the two appear to have a great bond. The two get along since they both enjoy working out and bodybuilding. Baena shared a snapshot of him and his father at the gym on Instagram. The caption said:
“I took this selfie just before my father advised I do ‘forced reps’ for the rest of the session. When you workout with him, you have to give it your best and not cheat, so you can bet I’ll be in a lot of pain tomorrow. Overloading on the rows, bench press, pull-downs, and other exercises, for example… My studly training companion thankfully assisted me in getting every single rep. This is yet another excellent workout method for increasing size and strength! “Try it out with a friend who is also a trainer.”
His son’s schooling is also supported by his loving father. Schwarzenegger celebrated Baena’s graduation from Pepperdine University with a degree in business in 2019 by posting this statement on social media: “Congratulations, Joseph!” says the narrator. Today is the culmination of four years of hard work studying business at Pepperdine. You have earned every moment of joy, and I am very proud of you. “I’m in love with you!”
The father also takes the time to commemorate all of his children’s birthdays on Instagram. “Happy birthday @projoe2!” Schwarzenegger wrote on Baena’s birthday in October 2021. I am so proud of you and adore you! You’re killing it in the gym, in real estate, and on the stage. I’m confident that this year will be much better.”
Baena decided to put his business degree to good use and began working as a realtor in May 2021 as a “side hustle.” Like his father, the 24-year-old spends a lot of his time pursuing acting roles. On Instagram, Baena wrote:
“This isn’t your typical real estate agent!” I’m really looking forward to starting a new career in residential real estate. I’m looking forward to developing and learning from my incredible colleagues at @aria properties, but even more so to finding you a new home! I’ll be largely based in West LA and Silicon Beach, so DM me if you’re looking to buy, sell, or need assistance. Your help is greatly appreciated; please tag someone who is in need of a home.”
With a successful father like Arnold Schwarzenegger, it appears that all Baena would have to do is mention his name to be offered parts. However, he chose not to use his father’s surname. “Well, I already have a last name, and I don’t have any issues with it.” Baena told Inside Edition, “I prefer my last name.”
Baena went on to say that, while he chose to follow in his father’s footsteps as an actor, he is inspired by both of his parents. The young man revealed the following:
“Seeing how hard my mother works is one of my primary motivators, and I want to make her proud.” My father is the same way. From nothing, he created himself. My parents, after all, are both immigrants who built something from nothing. Seeing them has been a big encouragement, and I want to do everything I can to make them proud. I want to be proud of myself.”
