While Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver separated in 2011, they divorced in 2021. In the years in between, the family healed as best they could. Schwarzenegger and Shriver never missed out on any significant events in their children’s lives. Arnold Schwarzenegger also established a great relationship with Joseph Baena. In fact, Baena even took up bodybuilding as his hobby.

However, fans noticed that while Arnie and Jo Baena often hung out, he would never be seen with his half-siblings. While the 25-year-old bodybuilding enthusiast follows his brothers and sisters on social media, they do not follow him. Hence, many fans passed judgment that his half-siblings do not want to associate with Joseph Baena.

While some asked questions, others saw things from a different perspective. “Not a stepbrother but why do people feel like he should force a relationship with him?” one fan asked those who pointed fingers at Arnie’s children. “Maybe he (Joseph Baena) has one but doesn’t feel to make it public,” added the fan. Another fan made a similar correction to those calling the 25-year-old their stepbrother. “He’s actually their half brother…” corrected the user.

Schwarzenegger’s affair, the resulting child, and everything that unfolded afterward was a difficult reality to accept for everyone involved. While Patrick Schwarzenegger or his siblings have never been in public with Baena, they have also never disrespected their half-brother.
