In 2011, Baena was not yet in high school when it was revealed publicly that his dad was Austrian superstar and California Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger who fathered the boy out of wedlock.

‘I remember the day very vividly. I was in the eighth grade. Fifth or sixth period. And I get called out of class to leave,’ he recalled. ‘And my mom’s there, and she’s like, “We gotta go—everyone is finding out about you and who your father is.”‘

‘I’m 13. Your body’s transforming; your mind is transforming. And now my life transformed before my eyes,’ he said. 

Mildred ‘Patty’ Baena, Joseph’s mom, gave birth in October 1996. At the time of conception, Arnold was married to journalist Maria Shriver.

They’d welcomed sons Patrick, 28, Chris, 24, and daughters Katherine, 32, and Christina, 30, during the span of their relationship.

But July of 2011, Arnold’s then-wife Maria filed for divorce after 25 years of marriage. In December 2021, the former couple’s divorce was officially finalized. 

Since then, the star-in-the-making and the Governator have developed a close bond. 

‘It took a little bit for me to realize that I don’t have to do what my dad did. I don’t have to get into acting or bodybuilding,’ he said. Ironically, Baena is doing both bodybuilding and trying for a career in front of the camera.

‘I’m very motivated and driven. I’m happy about my relationship with my dad. But I’m more happy that I am finding joy in what I’m doing and that I’m doing exactly what I’ve always dreamed about,’ he said.

‘A lot of guys struggle with trying to make their dad proud or trying to get out of their dad’s shadow. But as long as you’re doing what you want to do, then that all comes. Of course, maybe those guys don’t have such nice dads,’ he quipped. 

When Baena first began training at the gym he said he was too ‘nervous to ask his father for guidance and opted for learning from a book. Eventually, he and his body builder dad began working out together.

‘I was so nervous,’ he admitted. ‘I was being observant, trying to see what he was doing and the way he was acting,’

‘One of the big things I learned from Dad was not to have the ten-rep mentality,’ Joseph said. ‘It’s pushing yourself to the limits and going that extra mile, getting those extra reps and half reps till you’re basically dying.’ 

Baena posed for a muscled photoshoot for the magazine and put his toned, beefy physique on display for the cameras. He also shot a workout video at Gold’s Gym in Venice, California – which is one of his dad’s longtime favorite spots. 

However, while Joseph says his dad is helpful when it comes to body building advice, he’s not about to give him a leg up in Hollywood.

‘My dad is old-school; he doesn’t believe in handouts. He believes hard work pays off, and so do I,’ he said. 

‘I love the word honor, and I’m very prideful in the sense that if I use my dad’s contacts or ask him for favors, I wonder what honor is that gonna bring me? When I go to auditions, they don’t know who I am, because we don’t have the same last name,’ he added.
