Arnold Schwarzenegger may have had a son out of his wedlock, but when it came to claiming his son and assuming his responsibilities towards him, the 75-year-old did not shy away. Almost a decade earlier, news came out that the FUBAR actor had a carnal affair with their maid and they later on had a son named Joseph Baena. It would seem like Schwarzenegger not only accepted his deed but has also become a guiding light in his son’s life.

More often than not, Baena has been vocal about his father’s influence on his life and how he wishes to follow in Schwarzenegger’s footsteps. Well, among many other things, Baena has carefully crafted a chiseled body as the 7 times Mr. Olympia title winner, only to make his acting debut later on. And all the way through, the 75-year-old Austrian actor has been his mentor and supporter.

Even though none of the parties have provided any concrete statements about the same, many media outlets including Pinkvilla and more speculate that “his famous lineage” is responsible for the many opportunities he gets.
