Schwarzenegger Gifts Son Joseph With Birthday Home Gym
The love child that former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered with the family housekeeper recently turned 16 and got an appropriate gift from his famous father. Joseph Baena, son of the actor turned politician and Mildred Baena, the woman who ran the family’s household while having an affair with Schwarzenegger, received a home gym from his father. Recent photographs taken of the teenager, who lives with his mother in Bakersfield, CA, shows that he is the spitting image of his famous father.
The elder Schwarzenegger admitted in the spring of 2011 after leaving the governor’s office that he had fathered the child while Joseph’s mother was employed by the family. Schwarzenegger’s admission of adultery helped lead to the dissolution of his marriage to journalist and Kennedy family member Maria Schriver.
Schwarzenegger, who emigrated to America from Austria, becoming an award-winning body builder prior to pursuing a successful acting career, admitted that he was unwilling to acknowledge that Joseph was in fact his son until his wife confronted him while both were participating in a counseling session lead by a therapist. He and wife Maria separated after a 25 year marriage, but divorce proceedings haven’t yet been finalized by the power couple.
