Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son Joseph is mirror image of dad’s bodybuilding days

Arnold Schwarzenegger has built a close relationship with his son Joseph Baena, 26, despite having a turbulent start.

The pair have been pictured on several occasions together making up for lost years, and Joseph appears to have followed in his father’s bodybuilding footsteps.

Joseph took to Instagram to show off the results of his hard work at the gym with several classic bodybuilding poses.

In one picture, Baena stood nearly face forward while he flexed his right bicep and had his other arm up around his head.

Joseph captioned the post: “Another day in the office.”

However, social media users rushed to the comments and couldn’t help but comment on Joseph’s uncanny resemblance to his dad.

@Gainz.with.goggins quipped: “Anyone ever tell you, you kinda look like a young Arnold Schwarzenegger? Look him up if you don’t know.”

@Baysidequeens60 said: “The kid is doing something with the genetic lottery he won. Nice work.”

@Elzorro4u007 added: “Terminator series continues.”

@Inspiring.bureau commented: “Joseph will become the new Arnold. Not a mass monster strategy, most aesthetic and best proportions. I see a champion in the making.”

Arnold, now 76, perfected most of his iconic bodybuilding moves on Muscle Beach in the Santa Monica and Venice Beach area back when he competed.

The Terminator star began his weight training around 1960, and within five years he won the Junior Mr. Europe contest in 1965 and the Mr. Universe contest as an amateur the following year.

Still, decades after retiring, Arnold is still considered among the most important figures in the history of the sport.

He won Mr. Universe five times and was the Mr. Olympia Champion seven times.

During a recent interview, Arnold even claimed he still works out with weights nearly every day for 30 minutes.

Joseph and Arnold have a good relationship now, however, it doesn’t appear it was always the same.

At the age of 13, Joseph learned his biological dad was Arnold, as it was published in the press that he was a product of his mum Mildred’s affair with the actor.

Mildred was a housekeeper at Anrold’s family home at the time, with the affair causing the breakdown of Arnold’s marriage to Maria Shriver.
