His father is one of the biggest celebrities in the world, but he has to work a ‘normal’ job to support himself

His father is one of the most well-known celebrities in the world but refuses to support him financially. He dreamt of being an actor like his dad but failed to find work. All of this forced him to get a 'normal' job so he could pay his bills... More about his father in the comments...


No matter how we feel about it, parents’ “tough love” can teach our children a lot about life.

Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger was named Mr. Universe five times, and Mr. Olympia seven times. Over the curse of his career, which spans decades, he’s given the world of film some incredible roles, such as that of Terminator.

If you believe that he translates this tough persona into his private life, you are not wrong. It turns out that the actor turned politician hold onto some of the onscreen toughness with his children. Namely, Schwarzenegger is a father of five children. He has daughters Katherine, 34, and Christina, 31, as well as sons Patrick, 30, and Christopher, 26 with now ex-wife Maria Shriver. He also has a son, Joseph Baena, with the family’s former housekeeper, Mildred Patricia Baena.


Schwarzenegger took care of Joseph as much as he did for the rest of his children. He, however, doesn’t spoil them and makes sure they earn their own living instead of expecting him to provide them with everything in life.

Following college, Joseph, as well as the rest of the children, were to handle their own finances. The reason isn’t his dad’s lack of money, on the contrary, the “Terminator” has earned millions throughout the years.

Joseph doesn’t mind working and making his own money and is grateful his dad financed his education.


“My dad is old-school; he doesn’t believe in handouts. He believes hard work pays off, and so do I,” Joseph, who is a spitting image of his famous dad said in an interview with Men’s Health, adding, “I love the word honorand I’m very prideful in the sense that if I use my dad’s contacts or ask him for favors, I wonder what honor is that gonna bring me?”

Initially, Joseph wanted to follow into his dad’s footsteps and pursue a career as an actor, but he found that to be tough, so he turned to a more regular job. He, however, did pursue bodybuilding as hobby.

Having a diploma in Business Administration helped Joseph land a career as a real-estate agent. “So yeah, I needed a job, and I was not getting any of the acting roles that I thought I was going to get, and like starting to get paid,” he continued. “I was like, ‘I need to do something.’ So I started interning at this real estate company,” the 25-year-old shared with Essentially Sports.

Last year, he managed to sell his first house and was quick to share his excitement over reaching that milestone on the social media. He posted a picture of himself holding a ‘SOLD’ sign with the caption, “SOLD!!! Congratulations to my clients for trusting myself and @aria_properties to sell their beautiful Santa Monica Property!🍾🎉🎊.”

The young real estate agent shared online that he operates out of West Los Angeles and Silicon Beach. He invited anyone interested in selling their home to reach out to him through direct messaging.

“I don’t have to get into acting or bodybuilding. I’m very motivated and driven. I’m happy about my relationship with my dad. But I’m more happy that I am finding joy in what I’m doing and that I’m doing exactly what I’ve always dreamed about.”

“A lot of guys struggle with trying to make their dad proud or trying to get out of their dad’s shadow. But as long as you’re doing what you want to do, then that all comes. Of course, maybe those guys don’t have such nice dads,” he went on to say.

We are glad Joseph is happy with his life choices.
