Who is Joseph Baena?

Joseph Baena (born October 2, 1997) is an American film actor, bodybuilder, fitness model, and real estate agent. Despite being the son of Arnold Schwarzenegger, he chose not to use the same last name.

Joseph Baena is the biological son of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mildred Patricia “Patty” Baena. He is the legal son of Rogelio Baena, to whom his mother was married when he was born. He is the maternal half-brother of Jackie Rozo; and the paternal half-brother of Katherine, Christina, Patrick, and Christopher Schwarzenegger. His paternal half-brother, Christopher, was born 5 days earlier, on September 27, 1997. He has Austrian and Guatemalan ancestry.

In 2010, at 13, Baena learned that his biological father was Arnold Schwarzenegger when the media revealed the fact the day after Schwarzenegger’s term as governor ended. In 2011, he achieved some tabloid notoriety when Schwarzenegger admitted to conceiving him in an adulterous relationship with a former housekeeper, Mildred Baena, while he married Maria Shriver.

In 2019, Baena graduated from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California.

In March 2021, Baena began training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu at Checkmat Northridge. Baena and Schwarzenegger’s production company is named Defendant in a pending civil lawsuit from a car accident.

Baena was featured on the cover of the March 2022 issue of Men’s Health, highlighting his fitness practices and his family bond with his father. Upon beginning to lift weights, his father gave him the book The Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding, which Schwarzenegger co-authored to help Baena with his training.

In 2022, Baena participated in season 31 of Dancing with the Stars, where he was paired with Daniella Karagach; they were eliminated in fifth place and placed 11th in the competition. Trying to distance himself from prejudice and create his ground, “Arnold’s young son says he’s not only breaking the ‘dance floor’ but also ‘breaking down barriers in his family.'” His body type, flexibility, and physical training are not particularly well suited to dancing, which he envisioned as challenging.

Baena believed fitness became his watchword because he “couldn’t keep up with the other guys.” In a podcast interview, he confessed that he was bullied and out of shape. He had an epiphany in college: “I was like the chubby kid on my… team, and, um yeah. It wasn’t until I joined swimming my sophomore year…” When I couldn’t run, which left him unable to play football and basketball, he joined the swim team.

Since 2022, Baena has been a real estate agent for Aria Properties. He expressed interest in a real estate career on Instagram in May of 2021.
