Earlier this year, Baena told Men’s Health that he was eventually able to connect with his father over their shared love for bodybuilding and fitness.

To help with his training, Schwarzenegger ended up giving him a copy of The Encyclopedia Of Modern Bodybuilding, co-authored by the seven-time Mr. Olympia champion and considered by many to be the Bible of bodybuilding.

‘Even though I could call him anytime, I was too proud,’ Baena confessed of their relationship to the publication. His mother is the former California governor’s former housekeeper, Mildred Baena.

‘My dad is old school, he doesn’t believe in handouts. He believes hard work pays off, and so do I. I love the word honor, and I’m very prideful in the sense that if I use my dad’s contacts or ask him for favors, I wonder what honor is that gonna bring me? ‘
