Arnold Schwarzenegger's son needs a job
Baena currently works at Los Angeles realty firm ARIA Properties, and he said the job allows him to support himself.
"I needed a job, and I was not getting any of the acting roles that I thought I was going to get," he said.
"I was like, I need to do something, so I started interning at this real estate company," he added.
The real estate agent has followed in the Hollywood icon's footsteps and aspires to be an actor and a bodybuilder.
Baena's license now allows him to legally sell, broker, or rent real estate to prospective tenants and buyers.
Earlier this year, Baena celebrated selling his first home with photos outside the house.

However, Beana still has his heart set on being a Hollywood star like his Austrian-American father.
"I just love having a goal and then going for it. With acting, I know that my goal is to be a reputable actor and win some awards," he said.
Beana maintains that he will not change his surname.
"Well I already have a last name, and I don't have a problem with my last name. I like my last name," he disclosed.
