While many celebrities kids become stars on their own right, a lot of celebrities try to keep their kids out of the spotlight. For Arnold Schwarzenegger, a secret scandal had him hoping that his son would never be known to the public at all. However, after news broke about his son Joseph Baena, fans were eager to learn more about him. Now that he is all grown up and graduated from university, Schwarzenegger had stopped supporting him financially. With a net worth of nearly $500 million, Schwarzenegger insists that he has a good reason to do this.
Learning About His Son
In 2o10, a day after Arnold Schwarzenegger stopped being governor, Joseph discovered that he was his father. In 2011, it became publicized that Arnold had had a child with Mildred Patricia “Patty” Baena, who had been working as a household staffer at Schwarzenegger’s home while he was still married to Maria Shriver. Joseph was just 13 years old when the news of who his father is broke.
Joseph, who is half Guatemalan on his mother’s side and half Austrian on his father’s side, had a normal childhood before he learned who his father is. He said: “It was a humble home, and we didn’t have much.” However, his life would change dramatically after the news came out.
