While he might not share his father’s name, it is clear as day that Joseph Baena is the son of Arnold Schwarzenegger. Not only does he share an uncanny facial resemblance to the “Governator,” but Baena has also replicated his father’s muscular physique from all of his bodybuilding exploits.
“Arnie” was first introduced to Baena in 2011, after it was revealed that the actor had conceived him with his housekeeper, Mildred Baena, back in 1996. But Baena believes that he doesn’t need to follow in his father’s footsteps, even though he’s also very passionate about fitness. “I don’t have to get into acting or bodybuilding. I’m very motivated and driven,” he said in an interview with Men’s Health.
Henry Fonda (37) & Peter Fonda (37)
Jane and Peter Fonda were born into Hollywood royalty. Their father, Henry Fonda, was one of the greatest actors of his time and is still well-regarded as a Hollywood idol.
Peter managed to make his own mark in Hollywood, and in 1960 he became a symbol for the counterculture movement. One of his biggest films and one that he reached acclaim with was the 1969 blockbuster, "Easy Rider." Sadly, Peter passed away in 2019.
Will Smith (21) & Jaden Smith (21)
At age 21, Will Smith, an upcoming actor, was going by the name of Fresh Prince but hadn't yet scored his breakout role on "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." By the same age, his son Jaden (a play on Will's wife's name, Jada) was following in his father's footsteps and pursuing a career in music.
Along with his passion for music, Jaden has made a name for himself in style and has become a strong influence in the fashion world.
LeBron James (19) & Bronny James (19)
When your dad is the greatest basketball player of his generation, we don't blame you for wanting to emulate his talent and success. That's what LeBron Raymone James Jr. seems to have been doing during the last few years. Known by family and friends as "Bronny," this guy also has a deep passion for all things basketball-related.
He's already been tearing it up on the college basketball scene, playing for the USC Trojans in the Pac-12 Conference. And if he isn't able to break into the NBA at some point (which we wholeheartedly believe he will), maybe Bronny will have more success as a model, or a social media expert. After all, he already has close to 8 million followers on Instagram alone.
Michael Jordan (21) & Marcus Jordan (20)
Unfortunately, the raw talent didn't exactly pass down to the next generation in this case. Sadly, Marcus Jordan was never able to get even close to the dizzy heights that his father Michael Jordan had reached during his peak in the NBA. Sure, Marcus sought to emulate his daddy during his college years, playing for the UCF Knights.
But a party lifestyle ultimately got in the way of his progress and put his b-ball career on hold indefinitely. Marcus even opened up a sneaker store, but that business was also short-lived. Amazingly, Jordan's son has been in a relationship with Larsa Pippen in recent times. This must be extremely awkward since Larsa is the ex-wife of Scottie Pippen, who was Michael's sidekick for the Chicago Bulls back in the '90s!
