“My mom is one of my main motivators, and seeing her and how she works so hard, I want to make her proud,” he said. “Same with my father. What he made of himself from nothing. I mean, both of my parents are immigrants that kind of created something out of nothing.”
He continued, “So, seeing them, it’s been a huge inspiration, and I want to make them proud.”
Spoiler alert: his dad already is. “I am so proud of you and I love you!” Arnold wrote in a birthday tribute to his son in October. “You are crushing it in the gym, in your real estate career, and in acting. I know this will be another fantastic year.”
