Arnold Schwarzenegger, Joseph Baena

There are no real coincidences in Hollywood now, are there?

On the heels of a manic promo blitz by Arnold Schwarzenegger hyping his new autobiography—and right on the cusp of a hotly touted 60 Minutes interview airing this weekend—the Governator's love child and ex-mistress were spotted stepping out together on Thursday in Los Angeles.

Joseph Baena and his mother, Mildred Baena—who were at the center of the very public meltdown of Schwarzenegger's marriage to Maria Shriver—were photographed leaving a pet store.

It's been about a year since the two were last seen publicly after opting to keep a low profile following some canny media appearances.

Joseph, now 14, appears to be all grown up, sporting his father's hulking frame and signature curly brown locks.

Schwarzenegger has been actively dishing out his mea culpas as he stumps for his book, Total Recall. In a sneak preview of his 60 Minutes interview that aired on CBS This Morning earlier this week, he revealed that Shriver is "wishing me well with everything that I do" but admitted that she has yet to read the book.

And with good reason: In it, the Governator reveals pretty salacious tidbits, like having sex with Baena in the guest house of his California home in 1996 when Shriver was away on vacation with their four children.

Total Recall his bookstores on Oct. 1—a day before Joseph's 15th birthday.

See? No coincidences in Hollywood.
