Recently, Baena hopped on an Instagram trend on his story, which shocked everyone. An Insta trend – “the old picture of you or bad luck for 2 years” is making rounds on the photo-sharing app. As mentioned, the trend requires a person to share any old picture of them and post it on the story.

Baena shared a teenage image of him and captioned the story, “Great…”. It is unsure if Joseph was actually worried about getting two years or if he just want to participate in the fun trend. Nevertheless, Baena delighted his fans by sharing his teenage picture on the app.

It is also noticeable that Schwarzenegger‘s son has undergone a massive physical transformation since his teen days.

In 2011, various sources revealed that Joseph Baena was Schwarzenegger and his then-maid Mildred Baena’s son. Schwarzenegger once had a secret relationship with Mildred, which led to the bodybuilder and Shriver’s divorce.

However, despite the messy relationship between the three adults, Schwarzenegger and Baena became close to each other later in life. Although Baena didn’t follow in his father’s footsteps into professional bodybuilding, he is still a fitness freak like him and an aspiring actor.
