Most children of celebrities will end up becoming stars in their own right. However, many professional entertainers work hard to keep their kids out of the limelight. This happened to Arnold Schwarzenegger.
His secret scandal rocked the world, but his goal was to keep the public from learning about his son. When news broke out about Joseph Baena, fans obviously wanted to know more about him.
This young man is grown up and has graduated from college, which means that Schwarzenegger is no longer required to support him financially. Though Arnold has a net worth of about $500 million, there’s a good reason for his choice.
Learning About His Son
In 2011, it was publicized that Arnold had a baby with Mildred Patricia Baena, the household staffer in Schwarzenegger’s home. He was married to Maria Shriver at the time, and Joseph Baena was only 13 years old when he learned who his father truly was.
Joseph is part Guatemalan (mother) and part Austrian (father), but he had a normal childhood before learning of his father. He said he lived in a humble home without much. However, his life changed significantly once the news came out about it all.
