Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Sons – The Stories and the Scandal

Who are  Arnold Schwarzenegger’s sons?

Arnold Schwarzenegger has become a household name when it comes to action films, but he rocked Hollywood when he admitted to having an illegitimate child just days after announcing his and American journalist Maria Shriver’s separation after being married for 25 years.

At the time, not much was revealed about his child or the identity of the mother. The only hints that the media had was that she was a loyal member of the Schwarzenegger’s household staff. Days later, she was identified as Mildred “Patty” Baena, and she had worked in their home for 20 years. During the time she was pregnant, Maria Shriver was also pregnant with her youngest son Christopher.

The child’s name wasn’t made public initially since he was still a minor, but he was eventually revealed as Joseph Baena. His early years were filled with widespread media coverage due to his father being a high-profile celebrity and politician, but he maintained a close relationship with Arnold throughout the years. He has also developed a love for bodybuilding just like his father, and they are often photographed together.
