Arnold Schwarzenegger and son Joseph Baena celebrate Oktoberfest

The father-son duo stepped out in matching lederhosen to attend Arnie’s favourite festival.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is a regular attendee of the annual Oktoberfest celebrations held in Munich, Germany, but this year, he brought along a very special guest.
Sitting by his side throughout the festivities was his son and carbon copy, Joseph Baena, and judging by an Instagram snap shared by the actor, the pair had an absolute ball as they rang in the 19-year-old’s birthday.
The star's son Joseph Baena is the spitting image of his buff father!
“Happy birthday, Joseph,” the father father wrote, “Great student, great athlete. I’m proud of you and I love you!”
The sweet caption accompanied a rather touching shot of the pair bonding over a beer, wearing matching lederhosen and wide smiles.
Also dressed to impress and ready to celebrate was the 69-year-old’s girlfriend of four years, Heather Milligan, who began dating the former bodybuilder in 2012 after the demise of his 25-year marriage to journalist Maria Shriver.
Maria, 41, couldn't have been happier to celebrate the occasion with her boyfriend and his son.
Arnie and his former wife announced their split in 2011 after it was revealed that he had fathered a son with the couple’s housekeeper of 20-years, Mildred Baena.
When it all came crashing down, the star told 60 minutes that he didn’t know he was Joseph’s father until the boy “started looking like me, that's when I kind of got it. I put things together.”
Adding, "The important thing that everyone should know is that I take care of him and I take care of [his mother]. And I fulfill my responsibility and I'm glad to do that."

Talking to Howard Stern just a year ago, Arnie briefly touched on how accommodating Joseph has been throughout the entire ordeal.
"He's terrific and he totally understands the situation," the Terminator star quipped.
"So, it all has worked out… It's a very tough situation for him."
"It's a very tough situation for my kids, very tough situation for my family. It was tough for everybody.”
“But it has happened and now we have to figure it out, right?"
Arnold put two and two together when Joseph became his mini-me.
Arnold and Maria have four children - Katherine, 26, Christina, 24, Patrick, 22, and their youngest 18-year-old Christopher, 18, who was born just five days before his half-brother.
