Baena was born as the result of an affair between Hollywood's treasure Arnold Schwarzenegger and his and his wife's housekeeperMildred Patricia Baena. Both Arnie and now ex-wife Maria Shriver didn't know the truth about Joseph until the young boy turned 10, and the resemblance was too obvious to not be noticed.

Mildred told Hello! Magazine back in 2011 just how the secret got out that Joseph was Arnold's son: 'Last summer, I brought Joseph over to the house. Until then, he hadn't been around very much. After that, people in the house started whispering about how much they looked like each other.' Probably not the smartest move!

After spending time around the family, Joseph Baena was revealed to have been the son of the ex-Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger. This revelation took Hollywood by storm after the end of his term in office.
