The relationship between Arnold Schwarzenegger and his previous housekeeper, Mildred Baena, was covered extensively by media outlets in the past. Many may have thought that this affair was a thing of the nineties; however, news of their son, Joseph Baena, and interest surrounding his growth is still making headlines today.
Joseph Baena has recently celebrated his sixteenth birthday. The paparazzi recently snapped Joseph where the following image shows that the adolescent has a strong resemblance to his world-renown actor-turned-governor father. The following image shows that both carry similar bone structures and coloring.
According to TMZ, Arnold Schwarzenegger bought a home gym for his son. Joseph is a member of his school swim team where having the luxury of a home gym will definitely be a benefit.
The circumstances surrounding Arnold's relationship with Mildred Baena led to turmoil for those both directly involved. Mildred spoke with Hello! magazine during the time of the scandal where she explained the strength and genuine concern Maria Shriver showed Mildred even while Arnold and Maria's marriage was breaking down.
“I just broke down. I dropped to my knees and I was crying, saying that yes, he was, and I was so sorry. She was so strong. She cried with me and told me to get off my knees. We held each other and I told her it wasn’t Arnold’s fault, that it takes two,” Mildred said about Maria.
Arnold fully manned up to the encounter. “There are no excuses, and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry,” Arnold said.
Though the maturing boy has recently come into his own, the uncanny resemblance is hard to deny as even Joseph's mother and Arnold's mistress, Mildred Baena, has noted.
“I knew Arnold was the father, and maybe as Joseph got older and began to look like him, he [Arnold Schwarzenegger] wondered. But he never said anything to me,” Mildred said.
