AceShowbiz - Joseph Baena is following in his famous father's footsteps. On Thursday, January 17, the son of Arnold Schwarzenegger shared a photo of him recreating the iconic bodybuilding pose "The Terminator" star struck back in 1976 after winning Mr. Olympia for sixth consecutive time.
In an Instagram post captioned "Just a lil thicc," the 21-year-old stripped down to a pair of black shorts and gray converse sneakers, and flexed his muscles. The picture taken inside a gym were quick to garner attentions from his followers with one noticing the family resemblance, "Like father so son."
Another follower pointed out, "Apple doesn't fall far." One other user praised, "Flawless re-creation! Don't forget to forge your own legacy too!" A fourth wrote, "The next Olympian in bodybuilding..," as a fifth noted, "In the genes for sure, give your old man a run for his money, the sky's the limit!"
This was not the first time Joseph had tried to imitate his father's pose. Back in late November 2018, he posted a series of videos in an Instagram post. In the clips, he could be seen showing off his bulging biceps to the camera and posing like his father did. "It's only the beginning. #progress #classicphysique @seancaseyfitness," he captioned the post.
Joseph is Arnold's son from Mildred Baena, a former housekeeper whom he had an affair with. Back in July 2018, he posted a birthday tribute to the former California governor using a photo of them posing in front of Gold's Gym. "Happy Birthday to the man that's always pumped! Love you dad," he captioned the photo, along with confetti emoji.
In return, Arnold celebrated Joseph's latest birthday by reusing their photo and added a banner that read "Happy 21st Birthday!" The 71-year-old actor-turned-politician wrote in accompaniment, "It's been fantastic to watch you pump up your muscles and your mind this year and I can't wait to see what's next. I'm proud of you and I love you!"
Other than Joseph, Arnold also has four children from his previous marriage to Maria Shriver; 29-year-old Katherine, 27-year-old Christina, 25-year-old Patrick, and 21-year-old Christopher. Katherine herself has recently got engaged to "Guardians of the Galaxy" star Chris Pratt.
