Christopher Schwarzenegger Has 4 Siblings – Meet Arnold Schwazenegger’s Youngest Son

Back in the 80s, and early 90s, action films held sway and macho men ruled the box office. Men like Arnold Schwarzenegger became global film stars, churning out box office hits one after the other. However, as the millennium rolled in and Hollywood began to expand its genre of films, action films got less popular but its major actors remained A-list stars in the industry, a fact that transferred to their family, in the case of Christopher Schwarzenegger, the son of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is one a few celebrities who have touched multiple aspects of fame – He was once named the strongest man on earth and then he became a global film star, he also became a politician, serving an 8-year term as the Governor of California. His children, however, (particularly Christopher) are yet to have a claim to the throne of fame other than being the son of the super actor.

Christopher Sargent Schwarzenegger is an American celebrity famous for being the son of Arnold Schwarzenegger. The belief is that much of the fame and popularity that he enjoys is a result of his link to his father. Apart from fame, Christopher also enjoys an opulence life starting from his childhood.

Christopher Spent His Formative Years in California

Schwarzenegger was born on September 27, 1997, in Los Angeles, California. However, he grew up in his family home in Pacific Palisades California. Not much is known about where he had his elementary education but the best guess is that he went to an elementary school in his hometown.

Schwarzenegger had his high school education at Brentwood School. Upon graduating in 2016, he proceeded to the prestigious University of Michigan. He is currently focused on earning his college degree and pursue a bright future for himself.

Christopher is the youngest of four biological children born to Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver – two older sisters, Katherine and Christina, and a brother, Patrick. However, he is not the last child born to the Austrian-American actor and former politician. Interestingly, Christopher has a half-brother, Joseph Baena, from his father’s mistress.

His Parents had a Beautiful Love Story

In 1977, while Arnold Schwarzenegger was attending the Robert F. Kennedy Tennis Tournament, he met television journalist Maria Shriver. The woman who gave birth to Maria, Eunice, was the sister of President John F. Kennedy and senators Robert F. Kennedy and Ted Kennedy.  Maria Shriver, a journalist, and a published author and Arnold instantly bonded after their first meeting. In April 1986, they wedded in Hyannis Massachusetts. On December 13, 1989, three years into their union, they had their first child Katherine Eunice Schwarzenegger. They had their second child Christina Maria Aurelia Schwarzenegger on July 23, 1991, eighteen months after the first. The couple had two more boys; Patrick and Christopher. However, five days after Christopher was born, Arnold had another child with his housekeeper Mildred Patty Baena who hid this information from Arnold and his family for years.

The Couple’s Heartbreaking Divorce Followed After a Big Revelation

Unfortunately, while it may have been cool for Christopher to have a sibling who is his age mate, the news did not play well with his family and his mother, Maria Shriver filed for a divorce from his father on the 9th of May, 2011, after being together as husband and wife for 25 years. It was revealed that Schwarzenegger had another son 14 years earlier with their married housekeeper. The housekeeper hid this from the family until Maria had spoken with the housekeeper after the child began looking like her ex-husband.

Christopher Schwarzenegger’s Siblings and What We Know Them For

Katherine Schwarzenegger is Married to Chris Pratt

Do you remember acclaimed actor Chris Pratt? The dork from Parks and Recreation who went on to become a superstar via the Guardians of the Galaxy films? He is the husband of Christopher Schwarzenegger’s sister, Katherine Schwarzenegger. They got engaged on the 14th of January, 2019. The union is flourishing but we do not know for certain if the couple shares any children together.

Professionally, Katherine is an author who has published three books, Rock What You’ve Got: Secrets to Loving Your Inner and Outer Beauty from Someone Who’s Been There and Back, I Just Graduated… Now What?: Honest Answers from Those Who Have Been There and a children’s book called Maverick and Me. Her first book was published immediately after she graduated from the University of Southern California in 2010.

Christina Maria Aurelia Schwarzenegger is Also Successful

Christopher’s second sister Christina is not an author and neither is she into acting but this doesn’t;t mean she is doing well in her career.

However, she chooses to keep her professional engagements to herself but posts many of her family photos on social media.

Congrats to class of 2020! It’s already been 4 years for me.. Feels like just yesterday I was in college. Just missing my jaw line once again… Anyways, i know it’s an odd time to be graduating… Zoom graduations, not getting a formal goodbye from school, high unemployment, & not really quite sure what your future holds… there’s really no way around the fact that it’s an odd time to graduate. I wish I could tell you all the exact path forward. But I have no idea.. That being said… one thing that always helps me is REMEMBERING YOUR VISION. REMEMBER YOUR END GOALS. Sure it’s an odd time, but nothing should change your life’s goals & what you wanted to do after college. Yes..It may shift HOW your going to get there, but this WONT be the only time in life this will happen. Some days are sunny, others are cloudy, but when you remember your END DESTINATION & stay focused on that, you’ll continue on & grow from external issues. Personally i think this will prepare the class of 2020 for the next chapter more so then any other recent graduating class. Anyways, congrats to everyone graduating! It’s a big accomplishment & look forward to see what class of 2020 does to help our nation!

Ultimately, despite the major attention his last name garners, Christopher Schwarzenegger has often shied away from the media, unlike some of his other siblings.

Patrick towed the footsteps of his father by venturing into Hollywood. He made his acting debut in 2018 following his appearances on Midnight Sun.

Asides acting, Patrick is also a professional model. Christina, on the other hand, is an author with a couple of published works.

His Half Brother Takes After His Dad

Christopher Schwarzenegger may have grown up to think he was the last of the children born to his parents, especially his father but that truth was shattered in 2011 when the bombshell news broke that his father had fathered a child with one of their employees (housekeeper), Mildred Patricia Baena, giving birth to the child on October 2, 1997, who is named Joseph Baena, five days after Christopher was born.

His mother worked for Christopher’s family for 20 years. Joseph’s birth took about eight years before Arnold knew he had fathered him. After the truth concerning his birth was revealed and his mother, Baena separated from her husband a few months after. In 2010, Arnold bought Baena and Joseph a new four-bedroom house with a pool in Bakersfield, California.

Joseph Baena, Christopher’s half-sibling, recently earned a degree from Malibu’s Pepperdine University where he studied business. He is currently studying more and hoping to apply to some schools for MBA. Even so, he interested in acting, bodybuilding, and real estate which according to him are big goals for him.

A post shared by Joseph Baena (@projoe2) on

Joseph has a cordial relationship with his siblings and a closer relationship with his dad. Joseph not only inherited his father’s physique but also bodybuilding has been a common passion for the father-son pair with Jospeh describing Arnold Schwarzenegger as the best trainer.

Christopher has a Different Passion 

Christopher is not exactly the fitness and bodybuilding type. He is slightly overweight and has a huge bodybuild. He stands tall at a height of 5ft 11inches which is quite impressive. He weighs about 105kg which gives him a heavy build.

The Los Angeles native loves surfing and cycling. He picked up an interest in surfing while he was a teenager. Christopher’s interest in the sport dwindled a little after he had an accident. The accident which occurred sometime in 2011 left him with a collapsed lung and broken ribs.

Unlike his brother and father, Christopher has no desire to go into acting. For now, he still pursuing his Bachelor’s degree and is committed to it. As the saying goes, nobody knows tomorrow, Schwarzenegger might eventually develop an interest in Hollywood.

What are His Plans for the Future?

Like most celebrity children, Christopher has been dealing with the unending attention brought on by his father’s status as a public personality, even as he journeyed through his education.

For now, he is not doing any business at the moment. Most of the money he has is gotten from his wealthy parents who still support him. The chap is still in school but the hope is that once he completes his degree, either he secures a good job or starts a business enterprise. Whichever way, we wish him all the best in his future endeavor.
