Some parents ground their kids for staying out too late, or take away their cell phone. But when your dad is Arnold Schwarzenegger, punishments apparently go a whole lot differently.

The new Celebrity Apprentice host retweeted a photo that his son, Patrick Schwarzenegger, posted on Twitter about how his dad jokingly reprimanded him for a night of partying in honor of his 22nd birthday on September 18. The caption read, ““What happens when you stay out late to celebrate your birthday… @Schwarzenegger picks you up at 7AM to workout [sic].” And the accompanying photo is of an extremely muscular Arnold Schwarzenegger at the gym, smiling and pointing to his son’s equally impressive biceps.

The photo was all in good fun though, because an hour earlier, Arnold Schwarzenegger posted his own video on Twitter of him counting his son through a set of seated chest presses. As he finishes, the former bodybuilder says, “I never thought 22 years ago that I would have a son that one day would be not only smarter than me, but stronger than me. Wow, congratulations Patrick.”


It certainly looks like Patrick is following in his famous father’s footsteps. In addition to modelling and landing a few minor movie roles, the junior Schwarzenegger recently also bagged a role in the upcoming television series Scream Queens, his first foray into television.

Meanwhile, Arnold Schwarzenegger will also be moving into the TV world as the new host of Celebrity Apprentice, officially taking over the position from Donald Trump.
