AceShowbiz –Arnold Schwarzenegger may have kept his out-of-wedlock child Joseph Baena secret for years before it was revealed to public in 2011, but he’s always proud of him. On Saturday, April 27, the 71-year-old was on hand to support his son at his college graduation.
The “Terminator: Dark Fate” star attended the ceremony as the 21-year-old graduated from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. He proudly shared a picture featuring him with Joseph, who wore his blue and orange cap and gown, sharing a warm embrace as they were beaming at the event.
“Congratulations Joseph!” Arnold wrote in the caption. “Four years of hard work studying business at Pepperdine and today is your big day! You have earned all of the celebration and I’m so proud of you. I love you!”
Joseph also posted on his own Instagram page his graduation pictures. He was seen posing with his friends, his girlfriend Nicky Dodaj and his mother Mildred Baena. He also shared a photo with his father Arnold.
He wrote in the caption, “Some of the best times of my life are because of this school and the people in these pictures. I am so incredibly grateful to have the privilege to study at and graduate from such a beautiful and high caliber school. I now have my degree in business administration and with that, I believe this is only the beginning of a new road. Let’s see where it takes us!”
Later on the same day, Arnold was spotted attending his daughter Katherine’s bridal shower at his ex-wife and Katherine’s mother Maria Shriver’s home in Brentwood, Los Angeles. The former California governor reportedly arrived with Katherine’s fiance and his soon-to-be son-in-law Chris Pratt.
Earlier this month, Katherine was slammed for excluding Joseph from her sibling tribute on National Siblings Day. She shared pictures showing her with sister Christina, 27, and brothers Patrick Schwarzenegger, 25 and Christopher, 21, and wrote in the caption, “I LOVE THEM SO MUCH.” Some Instagram users called her out for preaching God, love and happiness but not acknowledging her half-brother.
Responding to the backlash, the 29-year-old author wrote to one particular critic, “Just wanted to remind you of Gods presence in all of our lives and even in yours as you come spreading hurtful words and judgement. He does not judge you or any of us. I am praying for you and sending you love not because what you said is okay, but because i believe you need love to heal whatever is causing you to post comments like this. god bless you!”
