Arnold Schwarzenegger and his former mistress Mildred Baena were reunited at Pepperdine University in Los Angeles, California on Saturday to attend their son Joseph’s college graduation ceremony.
‘Congratulations Joseph!’ the ex-California governor, 71, said on Twitter alongside a pic of him and Joseph. ‘Four years of hard work studying business at Pepperdine and today is your big day! You have earned all of the celebration and I’m so proud of you. I love you!’
The Terminator star looked sleek in a grey suit with a black T-shirt and a large watch with a pair of sunglasses on the overcast day in Southern California.

Mildred, a one-time housekeeper for Arnold and his ex-wife Maria Shriver at their Pacific Palisades estate, wore a pink coat over a black top with white pants and black slip-on shoes. She had her reddish-blonde locks under an off-white hat.
Both posed proudly for shots with Joseph, who wore a traditional blue cap and gown at the ceremony.
Joseph, who earned a business administration degree, was elated as he took to social media to mark the milestone.
‘Some of the best times of my life are because of this school and the people in these pictures,’ Joseph said in an Instagram post. ‘I’m so incredibly grateful to have the privilege to study at and graduate from such a beautiful and high caliber school … I believe this is only the beginning of a new road. Let’s see where it takes us!’

Joseph has occasionally shared shots of his time with Schwarzenegger via social media, as the pair bond over workouts.
Schwarzenegger revealed his affair with Mildred – and his fatherhood of Joseph – in the wake of his May 2011 split with Shriver, just weeks after their 25-year wedding anniversary had passed.
‘After leaving the governor’s office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago,’ Schwarzenegger said in a statement. ‘I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused.’
