Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son Joseph Baena looks identical to dad in ripped snap

Arnold Schwarzenegger's son Joseph Baena has shared some new photos showing off his incredibly muscular body, giving his famous dad a run for his money.

The 23-year-old is following in his dad's footsteps and showing there is no doubt that the two are related, as Joseph looks exactly like Arnie did at the height of his bodybuilding career.

The young hunk took to Instagram to share a series of shirtless photos in the gym, posing to allow in ways which further amplified the definition and size of his bulging muscles.

Wearing a black face covering, Joseph could be seen mimicking a pose that dad Arnold did in his younger days, flexing his biceps and drawing in his abs.

He pulled up the legs of his grey sweat pant shorts to give a clearer view of his rippling muscles.

In a third shot, he turned to the side and tensed his entire body, with the veins in his chest, neck, arms and legs very prominent.

His look is almost identical to that of Arnold's, who was a champion bodybuilder before entering Hollywood as an actor and then later becoming a politician.

Joseph isn't just following his dad's footsteps into the gym though, as he's also set to become an actor.

The muscle man, who was born of an affair between Arnold and his housekeeper Mildred Patricia Baena, landed a role in the sci-fi comedy The Chariot.

But he appears to want to make it clear he's actually not taking his dad's lead.

"I'm following my father's footsteps because I'm doing my own thing," he told DailyMailTV.

"I'm pursuing acting because I want to pursue acting. So really the pressure is just from myself."

He said he wants to "just focus on [himself]" and "drown" out the comparisons to his famous dad, though he did say Arnold is an "inspiration" to him.

But it's safe to say his recent photos will do very little to stop the comparisons rolling in.

A number of his 285,000 Instagram followers left a comment on his photos, with some likening to his dad.

One said: "Looking more and more like your pops."

Another wrote: "Next Arnold Schwarzenegger."

A third told him: "Just be the new Conan the Barbarian!"

And someone else added: "Definitely his dad's son."

Arnold became the youngest person to win the bodybuilding title Mr Olympia back in 1970 – the same age Joseph is now.
