Former bodybuilder, actor, and California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger celebrated an important milestone with his son, Joseph Baena last weekend.

The young man graduated from Pepperdine University this past weekend, where he studied business.

A photo of the proud father and his son accompanied heartwarming words of congratulations from Arnold:

"Congratulations 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!"



Joseph also posted photos from his commencement to Instagram, including photos with both of his parents.

Pepperdine University is located in Malibu California. Their mission statement says that the university is committed to:

"the highest standards of academic excellence and Christian values, where students are strengthened for lives of purpose, service, and leadership."

Other notable Pepperdine alumni include former Disney Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter, and actresses Tamara and Tia Mowry.

Baena attracted a bit of attention online earlier this year as he really got into bodybuilding and recreated some of his father's most iconic bodybuilding photos.



Social media was full of congratulations for Joseph.

Graduating from college is a monumental achievement in anyone's life. We hope that this accomplishment will lead to much success for Joseph in the future!

Then there are the night-time cringers...
