Joseph Baena


Arnold Schwarzenegger had quite the special guest at his Hollywood premiere Monday night.

The actor's love child, Joseph Baena, was spotted at the red carpet celebration for The Expendables 3. His mother, Mildred Baena, was also seen walking near her son in a glam new look.

The now 16-year-old student has grown into quite the young man with long, curly blond hair. He also has grown several inches taller since his last public appearances.

As Schwarzenegger posed for pictures and answered questions from the media, Joseph and Mildred mingled with other guests as they took in the sights and sounds of an A-list event.

In May 2011, the famous actor admitted to fathering a son more than a decade ago with a longtime member of his household staff.

"After leaving the governor's office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago," he said in a statement. "I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family."

He added, "There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry."

Maria Shriver filed for divorce in July 2011. The journalist and Schwarzenegger continue to co-parent their four children together.
