ARNOLD’S SPRAWLING MANSION
The Mediterranean-inspired abode is situated on an estimated 2.5 acres of land. The star actor’s home was strategically built to overlook canyons and an eye-catching view of the Pacific Ocean.
The 73-year-old is a dad of five grown kids and he loves fatherhood more than anything.
The palatial building features seven stately bedrooms complete with bathrooms enough to house his brood whenever they come around. The “Total Recall” actor’s home houses a chef kitchen, and several living rooms.
His abode also boasts a standard gym and areas of entertainment. A look at the outside shows a large swimming pool, a luxury spa, a tennis court and a duck pond. Arnold also had a stable built in his home for his pet donkeys, Lulu and Whiskey. The large expanse of land also gives the beloved animals enough grazing space.
INSIDE HIS FAMILY
The “Commando” star has come a long way in making movies and putting out the best pieces of creative works. However, nothing is as dear to Arnold as his loved ones. The 73-year-old is a dad of five grown kids and he loves fatherhood more than anything. He once shared in an interview:
“Fatherhood is really the greatest joy. Watching all five of my kids grow into their own successful lives is fantastic…”
The Hall of Famer’s is kids are star author and journalist, Katherine— who is married to actor Chris Pratt. After her comes sister, Christina, and sons Patrick, Christopher and Joseph Baena.
ARNOLD’S PATH TO STARDOM
The Austria-born star faced a difficult childhood riled by emotional abuse and body image issues. When Arnold was a child, his dad would body shame him often and this propelled his interest in body-building.
The seasoned actor made a name for himself as a bodybuilder when he grew older. He won five Mr Universe titles while acing the Mr Olympia title six times. Because of his perfect macho body, Arnold’s transition into acting was smooth and since then he aced milestones upon milestones.
