Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son is the spitting image of his dad

Arnold Schwarzenegger's son Joseph Baena posted an image of himself on the set of a movie, and he looks just like his Terminator movie-starring father.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son has followed in his footsteps, and he’s looking more and more like Arnold Schwarzenegger, the star of some of the best action movies ever, every day.

Joseph Baena, who was working on the film Lava, shared a picture of himself on Instagram during filming in Honolulu, Hawaii, and the resemblance to his father at the height of the Terminator movies is uncanny.

The jungle setting also inspires good memories of Predator. If this was 2015, we would make a bad ‘bae’ joke. Luckily, it’s 2023. Baena’s half-brother Patrick Schwarzenegger also acts and was in SNL alum Amy Poehler’s Netflix movie, Moxie, and the science-fiction movie Warning in 2021.

On Patrick’s filmography is also Stowaway, co-starring Frank Grillo and Ruby Rose. Baena is adept at many things though: he’s also a bodybuilder like his father and a licensed real estate agent. He was also on Dancing With the Stars, so obviously is not all about the rough and gruff, he has good feet, too!

You can see Joseph Baena’s Instagram post above, or maybe copy his workout routine by noting down every rep in the ‘Arnold-Style’ bodybuilding video below.

The similarities are rather obvious, the large frame, defined musculature, and medium-brown hair are all strikingly similar to Arnie. Who knows, maybe he’ll star in his own franchise one day.
