Joseph Baena is a son of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mildred Patricia Baena who was a housekeeper at the celebrity’s house for over 20 years. His mom was pregnant simultaneously with Arnold’s wife Maria, who gave birth to their son Christopher just a couple of days earlier than Joe drew his first breath.
Initially, Schwarzenegger thought that Joseph was a son of Mildred’s husband Rogelio, who broke up with her when the boy was only several months old. However, when he was 7 or 8 years old, the celebrity saw their resemblance. After discovering that he had one more son, Arnold took financial responsibility and bought a house for Joseph and his mom. In 2011, the truth about Baena was publicly disclosed.
Having got a degree in business at Pepperdine University, Joseph Baena got involved into the real estate business and became an Executive Assistant at ARIA Properties. Moreover, he is an aspiring actor and a social media star.
Additionally, Joseph shares a passion for sports and bodybuilding with his stellar dad. Having a muscular body, he looks exactly like young Arnold, who calls his son the favorite workout partner as they frequently train together.
Baena is currently dating a beautiful girl named Nicky Dodaj. And though he is successful in many spheres and has warm relations with his father, Joseph seems to be on bad terms with his paternal half-siblings. He even wasn’t invited to the wedding of Katherine and Chris Pratt in 2019.
A curious fact: Joseph spent his 19th birthday at Oktoberfest in Germany together with Schwarzenegger.
