Biceps bulging, torso rippling, is he Junior, or are they Twins?
This week, 42 years after Arnold Schwarzenegger flexed his own muscles, Joseph Baena, 22, struck the same pose — proving they are two (very substantial) peas in a pod.
No wonder, as it had emerged in 2011 that the Terminator star is the father of Joseph after an affair with his housekeeper.
Arnie is not the first man to have his extra-marital misdeeds catch up on him. Beth Hale takes a look at the other celebrities who have been told: ‘You’re the daddy!’

The good, the bad and the doppelganger son
The birth certificate states ‘father declined’, but Clint Eastwood and actor son Scott now share a close bond and a talent in front of the camera.
Scott, 33, and his sister Kathryn, 31, were the result of a fling with Jacelyn Reeves while Clint was in a relationship with Sondra Locke.
By 14, Scott had moved to the star’s California ranch, enjoying the outdoor life loved by his father.

Any Beverly Hills cop could solve this one!
He recently posed for photos with all ten of his children.
But it was a different story when Spice Girl Mel B told Beverly Hills Cop star Eddie Murphy she was expecting his child.
Asked about the pregnancy in 2006, Eddie said: ‘I don’t know whose child that is until it comes out and has a blood test.’
After Angel Iris Murphy Brown arrived on Eddie’s 46th birthday, in April 2007, a DNA test confirmed he was the daddy, and she’s now very much part of the Murphy fold.

When your godfather is actually your dad
Model Daisy Lowe grew up believing her father was New York-based doctor Bronner Handwerger, whom mother Pearl Lowe broke up with shortly after Daisy’s birth.
When Daisy was 14, however, a blood test revealed her real dad was her godfather, Gavin Rossdale, singer with rock band Bush, by then married to Gwen Stefani.
There were a few ups and downs, but father and daughter now have a rock-solid relationship.

Boris’ cupboard love and an ace spitting image
With matching jawline, pout and shock of flame-red hair (he’s a strawberry blonde), there’s no doubting who this model’s father is.
Anna Ermakova, 19, was born after father Boris Becker had a brief encounter with her mother, waitress Angela, in the broom cupboard of a London restaurant.
Nine months later and the tennis star, known as Boom Boom, for his prowess on the court, was involved in a paternity wrangle.
He denied fatherhood, but a paternity test proved otherwise. Father and daughter are now close, and he obtained joint custody in 2007.

Did Julio begin the beguine with a SPANISH ballerina?
Spanish crooner Julio Iglesias has consistently denied he is the father of Javier Sanchez Santos.
This year, a judge in Valencia ruled that Santos, 43, is the star’s son because of their ‘obvious physical resemblance’.
Julio refused to give a DNA sample and the judge’s decision — appealed by Iglesias — was based on the testimony of former ballerina Maria Edite, who said she had a brief affair with Iglesias on the Costa Brava in 1975 and Santos is the alleged result of it.

Daughter’s arrival knocked fast bowler for six
A solemn-faced statesman today (he’s the Prime Minister of Pakistan), cricket star Imran Khan used to be a legendary ladies’ man.
With her beaming smile, brunette Tyrian White bears a striking likeness. Born in 1992 — three years before Imran wed Jemima Goldsmith — she was the result of his affair with heiress Sita White.
Imran denied Tyrian was his, but in 1997 a judge declared he was the father. When Sita died in 2004, Jemima took on a ‘mother figure’ role.

With those tresses, he looks like his mum, too!
This love child is a dead ringer for his mother and his father.
Damian Charles Hurley was born on April 4, 2002, after a brief liaison between Liz Hurley and wealthy businessman Steve Bing, whom she met after her relationship with actor Hugh Grant ended.
Long before Damian was born, weighing 7lb 1oz, Bing was disputing paternity. It took a DNA test to resolve matters.
With those looks, it’s no surprise that 17-year-old Damian has been signed up by a model agency.

Rolling stone Mick’s Brazilian boy joined the clan
Brazilian model Luciana Morad had to file a paternity suit against Mick Jagger when she became pregnant while the Rolling Stone was still with Jerry Hall.
Jagger never denied the three-month affair, but as he tried to save his relationship, he insisted that Lucas was not his child.
A DNA test proved Mick really was the daddy, and before long the tot’s heritage was unmistakable. Now 20, Lucas remains close to the singer.
