In case you had any doubt that Arnold Schwarzenegger’s youngest son, Joseph Baena, takes after his dad, these photos will settle them.

Baena, 21, has been working on his physique while pursuing an acting career just like his famous father. And it seems like Schwarzenegger’s son thinks he measures up to his old man.

He posted an Instagram photo of himself recreating his dad’s iconic flex from his bodybuilding days, and fans who already call Baena "Baby Arnold" picked up on the resemblance.

"I see a new Terminator," one wrote. "Time to reboot the movie."

Baena has already started teasing his father about falling behind in the family’s "arms race," wishing him a happy father’s day in 2017 as "the man that’s almost as big as I am."

But there’s no love lost between this father-son duo.

"You're a fantastic son and a great training partner," Schwarzenegger wrote in a birthday tribute to Baena. "You get stronger and smarter every year and I’m so proud of you. I love you."

While Schwarzenegger once distanced himself from Baena, his lovechild from an extramarital affair, the 71-year-old actor is closer than ever with his mini-me these days, and they even hit the gym together.

But Baena’s time as the buffest member of the Schwarzenegger family could be over soon, now that Jurassic World star Chris Pratt is engaged to Schwarzenegger's daughter Katherine.
