Baena posed sans shirt on a lavish glass balcony, while the rain drizzled over the Los Angeles landscape.

For the photo, Joseph donned black, fitted sweatpants paired with black and white checkered Vans slip-ons. 

The body shape and pose looked exactly like the famous photo of his father taken in October 1976, when Arnold was aged 29.  

Meanwhile, on Saturday, aspiring actor Joseph used his Instagram Story to host a live workout session.

To promote the free routine, Baena flaunted his stella physique in a pair of itty bitty red shorts, while flexing for his audience.

Joseph often uses his Instagram page to document and promote his fitness journey – even posting photos of himself at the gym with dad Arnold.

Schwarzenegger famously won the Mr. Olympia professional men’s bodybuilding contest six times in a row in the early 1970s.

He went on to become one of Hollywood’s highest paid stars throughout the ’80s and ’90s, before becoming the Governor of California in 2003.

Arnold also has four other children with ex-wife Maria Shriver: Katherine, 29, Christina, 28, Patrick, 26, and Christopher, 22.

The ex-California governor is also father to four children with ex Maria Shriver: Katherine, 30, (whose husband is actor Chris Pratt); Christina, 28; Patrick, 26; and Christopher, 22.

Sources told Page Six last year that Joseph is hoping to build a relationship with his siblings, noting that Katherine and Christina ‘have really no relationship with Joseph,’ while Patrick and Christopher ‘have more of a relationship with’ him.

A source close to the family said that all parties involved have been amenable since news broke in 2011 that the Terminator actor had fathered a child out of wedlock during his marriage with Shriver.

‘Eight years later, everyone is feeling their way out of a nightmare, and they’ve all done a really good job finding their way into a new normal,’ the source said.
