With a dad like Arnold Schwarzenegger, once known as the “Austrian Oak” in his bodybuilding heyday, Joseph Baena could be expected to have plenty of muscles. Baena was revealed as Schwarzenegger’s son when the adulterous affair that Schwarzenegger had with his housekeeper Mildred Baena became public, as reported by People. The publication notes that Mildred became the source of controversy in the Schwarzenegger household when folks kept noticing how much Joseph looked like the former California governor. Even Maria Shriver, Arnold’s estranged wife, noticed and confronted Mildred, who dropped to her knees and apologized and confessed the affair. Shriver cried with Mildred, told her to get off her knees and to stay a little longer. Baena, meanwhile, found it “cool” as a boy to discover that he was Schwarzenegger’s son.

Not many folks had heard of Schwarzenegger back then, but both Arnold and Ferrigno would become staples in the entertainment world.
