Arnold Schwarzenegger’s love child Joseph Baena is officially a high school graduate. While the entire field was packed with people, there was one man missing from the ceremony — his father Arnold.
Joseph Baena, 18, was all smiles as he walked across the field of Frontier High School in Riverside, California. The love child of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mildred Patricia Baena graduated high school on May 28 and was photographed receiving his diploma while embracing his mother. Sadly, the Hollywood actor wasn’t in the stands.
There’s no denying the fact that Joseph looks just like his dad Arnold. Seriously, do you see how tall this kid is? Anyway, the love child of Arnold and Mildred was smiling from ear-to-ear as he proudly accepted his high school diploma from Frontier High School.
He was photographed waving to the crowd and adorably hugging his proud mother. His father who had an affair with Mildred while she was an employee in the Schwarzenegger household, wasn’t at the ceremony, according to the Daily Mail.
Joseph was not only donning a blue gown and cap, but he graduated with honors and had multiple honor cords and even a medal. He’s one smart cookie that’s for sure!
Arnold Has Taken Financial Responsibility Of Joseph
The sex scandal shocked Arnold’s family back in 2011 when he admitted paternity of Joseph. The fling between the actor and Mildred had been kept hidden for years and the boy was never told the identity of his biological father. Another bombshell was that Joseph was born just a week after Arnold’s youngest son with Maria Shriver was born.
Arnold has reportedly taken financial responsibility of Joseph and gifted him with a Jeep for his birthday and bought him and his mother Mildred a four-bedroom house, with a pool, in Bakersfield, according to the Daily Mail.
