His four half-brothers and half-sisters treat him differently

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son, Joseph, born from his relationship with a maid, shares a close relationship with the actor. However, the illegitimate child was not invited to his half-sister’s wedding.

Former bodybuilder turned actor and politician Arnold Schwarzenegger has an interesting romance with the niece of former United States President, John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

The “Terminator” star is married to Maria Shriver, an award-winning journalist and author and is the daughter of Sargent Shriver and Eunice Kennedy Shriver.

Although the couple separated in 2011 after nearly three decades together, with Shriver discovering her husband’s romantic affair with their former maid, Mildred Baena, they were not reunited until 2021. Their union dissolved.

Schwarzenegger’s betrayal resulted in a son named Joseph whose existence was kept a secret. Despite discovering the actor’s secret and his decision to separate, Shriver has not publicly slandered him.

Instead, the former couple protected their friendship and continued to respect boundaries, while lovingly embracing shared parenting.

The news of their divorce came as a shock to fans who believed they still shared a close bond. But for Shriver, getting a divorce over the Christmas holidays, when people were busy partying, was the best time.

However, it was revealed that it took a decade to get to the right time due to a lack of motivation and a complex property settlement agreement. In fact, the couple did not sign a prenuptial after they got married in 1986.

It must be said that Schwarzenegger and his ex-wife have turned the page after their split. Although they stayed close, they found new interests in the relationship.

In the end, an asset settlement agreement was reached, although most of it is confidential, TMZ reported that a fortune estimated at $400 million was shared, plus everything else.

It happened on December 28, in the Los Angeles Superior Court. Celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser represented the mother of four, while Christina Royce worked with the former California governor. After the legal settlement, neither party expressed any dissatisfaction.

A few years after announcing the actor’s extramarital affair, Shriver admitted in his book “I’ve Been Thinking…: Meditations, Prayers and Meditations for a Meaningful Life,” that forgiveness is never easy, but it’s way better than a victim mentality.

On the other hand, the “Terminator” regretted the betrayal and secrecy. He stated that he blamed himself for the breakup.

Regardless of how they may have felt in the past, the former couple thrive as friends. However, the same cannot be said of their children, including the comedian’s illegitimate child.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s children’s relationship with his son Joseph Baena

Born in 1997, Joseph grew up alongside his sister Jackie Baena. His mother worked as a housekeeper for the famous actor and lived in the Pacific Palisades mansion with her family.

When he turned fifteen, neither Shriver nor Schwarzenegger could ignore his resemblance to the “Terminator” actor. So he confronts journalist Mildred, who ends up confessing everything. Note that Joseph and his half-brother Christopher were born less than a week apart.

Not only did this news affect the mother of the family, but it also affected her children who felt betrayed. Since then, the four half-brothers and one half-sister have decided to cut ties with their father’s illegitimate child, whom they once considered a family friend.

Shriver’s daughters, Katherine and Christina, do not consider Joseph to be part of the family. At Katherine’s wedding to actor Chris Pratt in 2019, photos showed that her half-brother was not on the guest list.

Besides not bringing him to family gatherings, Catherine never shared photos of Joseph, despite the siblings’ regular Instagram posts.

After celebrating National Siblings’ Day, she posted a picture of her and her three siblings, showing their bond.

But few netizens criticized Catherine for her bias. One fan explained that the girls’ ignorance shows that they are not ready to accept the “memory” of what broke their happy family.

Patrick and Christopher have yet to share details about their half-brother on social media, but sources close to Joseph have revealed that the boys spend time together.

Last year, Patrick was seen training with his half-brother. Then Nikki Budag, Joseph’s fiancée, joined the boys. This is the first time the brothers have appeared together in public since 2011.

Despite the attitude of his half-brothers, Joseph has not yet broken his silence. Instead, he tries to connect with them via social media. Mildred’s son follows his siblings on Instagram and comments on them from time to time, but none of them returned the favour.

Although he was not invited to Catherine’s lavish wedding, Joseph shared a loving comment in his post, showing his happiness for the new couple.

Regardless of the nature of their relationship, the Schwarzenegger clan makes the patriarch proud. His first daughter, Katherine, is an author who was educated at the University of Southern California, and her family is successful.

His sister Christina graduated from Georgetown University. She worked on the co-production of a documentary on Netflix with her mother.

Patrick inherited his father’s acting skills. He works as a model and has starred in popular films such as “Grown Ups 2” and “Midnight Sun”.

If Christopher has not yet pursued his passion, the young man graduated from the University of Michigan in 2020. Finally, illegitimate child Joseph is very similar to his father in appearance and personality. He is a bodybuilder and has some movie credits.

The relationship between Arnold Schwarzenegger and Joseph

Although Joseph’s relationship with his half-brothers is not close, given that he is neglected at family gatherings, he shares an unbreakable bond with his father.

The young actor claimed that he had a really great relationship with the “Terminator” star and they shared jokes.

Joseph admitted that at first he was different because he was perceptive and nervous to make a good impression on his famous father, having spent most of his life with Mildred.

In the end, they managed to get close. Besides sharing the good times, the former ruler listens to his son and gives him various advice on the relationship.

Joseph stated that he was comfortable with “Bina” and did not consider using his father’s name. He prefers to be noticed thanks to his current name.

Fortunately, the youngster is making progress, and he recently said that Schwarzenegger is happy for him. When Joseph was asked who he telephoned to share news of his success, he fondly mentioned his mother and father.
