Arnold Schwarzenegger’s children were not fans of his political career.
The 73-year-old actor and retired governor spoke about his family’s feelings with his eldest daughter Katherine, 31, on his Instagram show: “Before, During and After Baby.”
On Saturday, the couple sat down for the 32nd episode of Katherine – a “grand finale of Father’s Day week.” During the nearly 34-minute interview, Arnold admitted that his four children were not happy with his transition from an action movie star to the 38th Governor of California.

The Schwarzenegger family moved from Hollywood to Sacramento, where Arnold served two terms from 2003 to 2011.
“First of all, I think it’s very important to let everyone know how much you kids hated my job. It was one of those kinds of weird things where I just thought that : “Oh, my kids will be so proud of me governor now. And all that, but I don’t think you really have anything to do with it, ”Arnold said. “I think you were so used to what we did when I was on a movie set.
The “Terminator” star explained that his kids were more used to doing homework in movie studios and joining him on sets where he could blow up a building or film a fight scene.

“It was your entertainment,” he added. “So when you think of after-school programs, you had the perfect after-school program. “
However, when that all changed when the family planted roots in Sacramento, Arnold noted that his children would tell him outright that they hated his job as governor.
According to the Austrian-born bodybuilder turned American politician, his children didn’t like the seriousness of the Californian capital and asked why their situation had changed.

While his children weren’t thrilled with his tenure, there was a reason behind Governor Arnold.
In his own words, he “had this obsession with fixing the condition and making it better. That’s why I ran from moment to moment when there was a recall.”

Arnold also praised his ex-wife Maria Shriver, 65, for her support as a working mother and political confidant.
The couple married from 1986 to 2017 and raised four children together, including Katherine, Patrick, 27, Christopher, 23, and Christina, 29.
