Joseph Baena, Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s youngest son visited the gym that made him famous forty-five years ago.
The body builder pumped iron at the old gym and then replicated a picture of Arnold which reminds us of the similar paths their lives have taken.
Joseph Baena is Arnold Schwarzenegger’s love child with his housekeeper Mildred Baena. He had affair with his mother while married to Maria Shriver who is the mother of his other four kids.
Joseph visited Gold’s Gym in Venice, the fitness spot featured in the 1977 documentary “Pumping Iron” that launched his dad’s career.
A picture of him passing an enormous poster promoting an upcoming Netflix documentary about Arnold’s life was taken. The picture has now gone viral.
It’s a poignant moment … 25-year-old Joseph Baena in captured in front of a Netflix poster celebrating his father.
His rise to fame had an uncanny resemblance to Arnold Schwarzenegger. Like him, Joseph overcame humble beginnings to make it big, first as a bodybuilder and now as an actor.
His movie career is blowing up just like his dad’s did when he was in his 20s … the younger man starred in three projects in 2022 and has five more movies due out next year.
Making the whole thing even more surreal… Joseph is the spitting image of his dad, whose smiling face is front and centre in the poster behind him.
However, his step-siblings do not share cordial feelings with Joseph. Rumour has it that Joseph Baena has reportedly been “shunned” by the actor’s other children.
Earlier this month, Arnold opened up about how his affair with his housekeeper and his resulting love child tore his family apart.
The rumor may have some semblance of truth. Arnold’s eldest daughter Katherine Schwarzenegger, 33, didn’t invite Joseph to her wedding to Chris Pratt in 2019 although he sent his well-wishes.
And now it’s been claimed the children “didn’t love” Joseph as they attended their dad’s FUBAR premiere separately.
