Arnold Schwarzenegger is proud to be a father to five kids.
With his ex-wife, Maria Shriver, the star of “The Terminator” and former governor of California has four kids: daughters Katherine, 32, and Christina, 31, and sons Patrick, 29, and Christopher, 25.
In 2011, the actor told the public that he had another child with his longtime housekeeper, Joseph Baena, who is now 25 years old. After 25 years of marriage, Shriver filed for a divorce in May 2011.
“We are still taking care of our four kids together. They are the most important thing in both of our lives “At the time of their breakup, Shriver and Schwarzenegger said in a joint statement.
In 2015, when he was a guest on The Howard Stern Show, the ex-bodybuilder talked about the scandal “a very hard situation for my kids and for my whole family.
Everyone had a hard time. But it’s already happened, so we have to figure out what went wrong, right?”
He also said that his relationship with his children, including his fifth child with Mildred, was “fantastic.” He called up Joseph “terrific,” and added, “He totally gets what’s going on.” So, everything has turned out well.”
Schwarzenegger is now a father and a grandfather of two. His daughter Katherine gave birth to Lyla Maria in 2020 and Eloise Christina in 2021. This year, he told Jimmy Kimmel, “Being a grandfather is the easiest thing in the world.”
“When they come to your house, you play with Lyla for an hour or two, putting her on the horse and giving her to the dog. He laughed and said, “It’s great! They leave after two hours.” When they come to my house, I have a lot of fun.”
Here is all the information you need to know about Arnold Schwarzenegger’s five kids.
Katherine Schwarzenegger is Schwarzenegger and Shriver’s first child. Her middle name, Eunice, is a tribute to her maternal grandmother, Eunice Kennedy, who was President John F. Kennedy’s younger sister. She was born in Los Angeles on December 13, 1989.
Even though Katherine was born into a political family, she has always said that she is not interested in politics.
She told in 2016: “Absolutely not, politics is not my thing.” “If you grow up in it, I think you either love it or say, ‘No thanks!'”
In 2010, when she was only 21, she wrote her first book, Rock What You’ve Got: Secrets to Loving Your Inner and Outer Beauty from Someone Who’s Been There and Back. It became a New York Times best-seller.
Katherine graduated from the University of Southern California two years later and wrote another self-help book called I Just Graduated…
What’s next? to help other college graduates figure out how to live in the “real world.”
In 2017, she wrote a children’s book called Maverick and Me about her rescue dog. In 2020, she wrote The Gift of Forgiveness.
The author has been a supporter of animal rights for a long time and is a representative for the ASPCA and Best Friends Animal Society.
During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in February 2022, Schwarzenegger said, “I love my daughter Katherine.” “She is so great, and I’m so happy for her.”
He also likes Katherine’s husband, Chris Pratt, who he says is “a great guy” and a “great son-in-law.”
In 2018, Katherine started dating the actor from Jurassic World. They met at church. The following January, they got engaged, and in June 2019, they got married in a small ceremony.
Their first child, a daughter named Lyla, was born in 2020. Two years later, they had another daughter named Eloise.
Schwarzenegger’s second daughter with Shriver, Christina Schwarzenegger, was born in Los Angeles on July 23, 1991.
She went to the same college as her mother, Shriver, and got a bachelor’s degree in English from Georgetown University in 2013.
Later, she went to Parsons School of Design to study interior architecture. For three years, she worked as an editor at Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle brand Goop, where she wrote about all things health and wellness.
Christina is also a member of the Special Olympics Founder’s Council, which she helped create. “I love shining a light on people who feel like they are on the outside and telling the world about their experiences.
The result is that we all feel accepted and, in the end, realize that our differences are actually our strengths “The Special Olympics website says that Christina said this.
She and Shriver co-executive produced the 2018 Netflix documentary Take Your Pills, which was about Christina’s struggles with Adderall addiction and how pressures from society can lead to people abusing controlled substances.
In 2021, when Schwarzenegger’s younger daughter turned 30, he shared a touching post on social media that included photos of him and his daughter.
“Happy birthday, my schpatzl (little sweetheart)!” He wrote, telling her what he called her. “I can’t believe you are 30!
I’m so proud of you for everything you do, from making amazing documentaries that teach people new things to helping out with Special Olympics to making amazing art that blows mine out of the water.
Nothing makes me happier than spending time with you, whether we’re working out or traveling the world. I’ll always call you my little Leo, and I’ll always love you.”
Patrick Schwarzenegger was born on Sept. 18, 1993, in Los Angeles, and is the third child between Schwarzenegger and Shriver.
He is an actor and model who is trying to make it in Hollywood. Patrick’s first role on the big screen was a short one in the 2006 movie Benchwarmers.
Since then, he’s been in movies like Netflix’s Moxie and HBO Max’s true crime series The Staircase.
Patrick told Today in 2020 that he was following in his dad’s footsteps as an actor. “Both of my parents are proud of me,” he said. “It’s pretty strange, because when I was a kid, going to set with my dad was my favorite thing to do.”
Patrick added, “He’s really proud of me, and they’re so helpful.” I couldn’t have asked for better parents.
Since September 2015, the USC Marshall School of Business graduate has been with model Abby Champion. He met her after he broke up with Miley Cyrus.
On Patrick’s 28th birthday in 2021, Arnold sent him a birthday message with some cute old photos of the two of them and told his oldest son: “I love you and am proud of you.
One of my greatest joys is seeing you grow every day in every way. Your business is doing well and your acting career is on the rise, but the most important thing is that you never forget to help other people.”
Christopher Schwarzenegger was born on Sept. 27, 1997, in Los Angeles.
Most of the time, Shriver and Schwarzenegger’s youngest child has stayed out of the spotlight. He graduated from the University of Michigan in 2020, but he had to do it online because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Schwarzenegger took the chance to show how proud he was of his son by putting a photo of Christopher in a cap and gown in front of the University of Michigan logo and posting it on Instagram.
The proud dad wrote in the caption, “Christopher, you are a champion, and I love you.”
“I know that your Michigan graduation wasn’t the big party you’d been looking forward to for years, but walking across a stage isn’t what makes me so proud of you.
It’s your kindness, hard work, vision, critical thinking, and generosity that make me want to burst with pride. I can’t wait to see you keep going up and getting better.”
In 2021, on Christopher’s 24th birthday, Schwarzenegger shared three cute photos of the two of them and said that Christopher likes to do a lot of different things.
“I can’t even keep up with you between your boxing classes, your weightlifting classes, your stretching classes, your cycling classes, and so on!” he wrote. “Every day, I love you and am proud of you!”
Joseph Baena is the son of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mildred Patricia Baena, who worked as his housekeeper for many years.
On October 2, 1997, he was born. His mother didn’t tell anyone who he was for the first seven or eight years of his life, until it became clear that he looked like his father.
On the 60 Minutes show in 2012, the former governor of California said that it wasn’t until Joseph “When he started to look like me, I kind of got it. I made things work.”
Joseph said on Sophia and Sistine Stallone’s Unwaxed podcast in January 2022 that the two got closer as time went on.
“I also want to say that it took me a while to get close to my dad and feel like I can joke around with him and talk about anything,” he said.
Now, the father and son often go to the gym together. Joseph is a bodybuilder like his dad, and he says that his dad is the “best training partner in the world.”
The 2019 Pepperdine University graduate has done some of his dad’s famous muscle man poses on Instagram.
In 2021, on Joseph’s 24th birthday, Schwarzenegger shared three photos of the two of them having fun together on Twitter. “Joseph, happy birthday!
I love you and am so proud of you. You’re doing great at the gym, in real estate, and as an actor “The actor wrote next to the pictures of the two of them drinking, riding bikes, and just hanging out.
“I know that this is going to be another great year.”
Joseph is also starting to become an actor. In 2021, he worked on his first movie, Bully High. He also works as a real estate agent for ARIA Properties, which is based in California.
Joseph also danced with professional dancer Daniella Karagach on season 31 of Dancing With the Stars.
During an interview for the show, he was asked if Schwarzenegger ever thought about putting on his dancing shoes.
“What’s this? No, no, “He added that his dad might make an exception if Dani was his partner.
Joseph then said that his dad is “so happy” and “so proud” of him and his dancing.
“I really like my dad. I can’t think of a smarter or better man than him “said the fitness model. “So, you know, to be compared to him, to play the same role as Hercules, which he did in New York, is a big deal.
It’s really cool, you know. It’s really cool. Who doesn’t want to be just like their dad? So, it’s wonderful.”
Even though Joseph and Karagach got their best score of the season in the “Prom Night” episode of DWTS, they were eliminated.
“When you put your heart out on the ballroom floor, it’s hard not to be surprised,” Joseph said. “It’s sad and shocking to have to say goodbye, but I’m just glad I had this experience in the first place.”
