This picture shows Arnold Schwarzenegger and his son wearing traditional Russian coats in the snow as the Hollywood superstar celebrates his son’s birthday.
The bodybuilding legend shared the photos on social media for his 18.1 million followers while posing with his son Christopher for his 22nd birthday, which was on 27th September.
In the snap, the two Schwarzeneggers are seen standing in the snow while Arnie wears a thick fur coat and his son Christopher is reportedly dressed in the overcoat of a colonel of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs.
While Christopher keeps things local with a tradition fur hat, Arnie has opted for an American-style cowboy hat.
Schwarzenegger posted the photo with the message: “Happy birthday Christopher, you are such a jewel. I have loved every minute of watching you grow up, you make me so proud every day and I can’t wait to see what you become. I love you!”
Netizens had a lot to say about the wintery snap, with many noting that the father and son were dressed “like Russians”.
‘Alexsandr’ commented: “Congratulations. You look like Russian officials!”
‘Alexander Tyurin’ said: “You do not have any Babushka nesting dolls, vodka or balalaika’ (Russian stringed instrument).”
The photo also reminded netizens that Schwarzenegger played Russian Militia Captain Ivan Danko in the 1988 American action movie ‘Red Heat’ alongside Jim Belushi.
It is currently unclear where this photograph was taken.
