Arnold Schwarzenegger teased his daughters and son-in-law Chris Pratt at his first event this week – highlighting his rift with Maria Shriver and his illegitimate son.
Arnold Schwarzenegger was surrounded by his kids at the premiere of his new Netflix show “FUBAR” this week.
But while the superstar hugged his daughter Christina, 31, and Kathryn, 33 — with late “Guardians of the Galaxy” star husband Chris Pratt — as his love child, Joe Baena walked the red carpet alone.
Although Schwarzenegger is very close to his five children, the actor’s four children have had no contact with Bena since his marriage to Maria Shriver.
Their half-sibling is the result of the actor’s relationship with the family’s former housekeeper, Mildred Bayena.
Schwarzenegger and his son are “very close,” said a source who knows the actor. But, to be honest, the other kids don’t like Joe. It’s a shame because he’s such a good boy, and Arnold has always seen him like his other kids – so perfect. But for whatever reason, other children take it [the affair] It’s out on Joe. “
The red carpet minis didn’t go unnoticed as Baena, 25 – who, like Schwarzenegger, is a top bodybuilder – posted a photo of himself at the social network premiere and wrote how proud he was of his dad.
“I give FUBAR 2 thumbs up!!!” he wrote “Had an amazing time at the FUBAR premiere last night. [sic]! In my biased opinion, FUBAR is a hilarious, action-packed show that will have you on the edge of your seat the entire time!”
To this, one of Bena’s followers responded: “Man, it’s disgusting how you’re caught in your own blood.” Completely ignored due to something out of your control. Is it racism? who knows. Use these bulls to fuel you at the end of the day.
The follower added that Bena’s siblings “completely ignored him… They were at the same premiere and took pictures together, but they completely avoided John.”
Another fan wrote: “That’s a shame. It looks like Arnie [sic] Love them equally, if not Joe a little more because he walks.
Surprisingly, Bena did not delete the comments.
Page Six has reached out to Bena for comment.
Schwarzenegger did not play again, and a family representative had no comment.
As previously written, the children have a difficult relationship with Bena, Schwarzenegger has always provided for the child – including college fees – and Mildred bought her a house.
At 75, the former California governor — seen at the premiere holding a book titled “World’s Best Dad” — is looking better after heart surgery in 2018.
“I saw him a month ago and he looked fantastic,” a friend of Schwarzenegger told Page Six.
He shares Kathryn and Christina, as well as Patrick, 29, and Christopher, 25, with Shriver, a regular “Today” show contributor.
Catherine is making a name for herself through children’s books, TV and charity work.
Patrick is a model and actor, and Christina is a documentary filmmaker and founding member of the Special Olympics Founding Council.
(Their grandfather, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, founded the Special Olympics in 1968.)
Christopher is entering the workforce and has graduated from the University of Michigan.
The premiere of “FUBAR” was the first time the tension between the Schwarzenegger children had come to light.
Onlookers told Page 6 that Beyna stayed to enjoy the after-party at The Grove premiere in Los Angeles, while the other kids went home.
“Arnold is very close to Joe. I attended the events he brought him with him,” the source said.
The source said Bayena was angry with his half-siblings, saying, “It’s not fair, but I think it’s understandable – it’s the result of something that shouldn’t have happened.”
“The Schwarzenegger kids have consistently handled the situation with dignity and class,” another source said.
In “FUBAR,” Schwarzenegger plays a retired CIA operative with Monica Barbaro as his daughter.
Discussing his dad on the happy carpet, Bena said: “It’s always nice to see his exposed, little fatherly side. i love it.”
When asked what advice Bena, who stars in the upcoming action film Gunner with Morgan Freeman and Luke Hemsworth and has also spent time on Dancing With the Stars, imparted — “The main thing he always tells me is, ‘You’ve got to get the reps.’ It’s practice, practice, practice.’
Schwarzenegger and Shriver only divorced in 2021, though they separated in 2011.
The actor recently told The Hollywood Reporter that the breakup was “my fk up, my failure,” adding that their divorce was “very, very hard at first.”
“Eventually you’ll move on.” he said. “I have a wonderful girlfriend [physical therapist] The most successful Heather Milligan. I’m really proud of her, and I love her.
“At the same time, I love my wife. [Shriver]. She and I are very good friends and very close, and we are very proud of the way we have raised our children.
“If there’s an Oscar for how to handle a divorce, Mariah and I should get it for having the least influence on our kids,” he joked. “The sweetness and kindness you see in them, that’s from my husband. The discipline and work ethic is from me.
Page Six has been told that Baena and Patrick are having a bit of a relationship, and another source said the two were recently seen working out together in Santa Monica.
However, Patrick does not follow Baena on Instagram.
Another family insider added: “Arnold loves all his children. He has a good relationship with everyone.
