“I also have to point out that with my relationship with my dad it took a little while for me and him to get really close and just [feel] like I can joke around with him and talk about anything,” Joseph shared.

It was revealed back 2011 that Arnold had fathered Joseph with family housekeeper Mildred Patricia Baena while he was still married to Maria Shriver. The two split once Maria found out about the affair.

“I grew up with my mom and I was always nervous and I didn’t want him to think bad of me and be like, ‘What the heck is this guy doing? He’s just partying all the time,’” Joseph explained. “Now it’s like awesome. I’m so close to my dad and we joke about everything.”

Joseph went on to add that Arnold “always wants to hear about the drama. He’s like, ‘Tell me everything, tell me about the drama, tell me about the girls.’”

In another recent interview, Joseph explained why he doesn’t use Arnold‘s last name.
