“Some of the best times of my life are because of this school and the people in these pictures,” Joe wrote. “I am so incredibly grateful to have the privilege to study at and graduate from such a beautiful and high caliber school. I now have my degree in business administration and with that, I believe this is only the beginning of a new road. Let’s see where it takes us!”

Arnold ‘s affair with Mildred and the child they shared came to public attention in 2011, Joseph was 14 at the time. Arnold was married to Maria Shriver, who filed for divorce shortly after.

“You do think about it every so often,” Arnold told Men’s Journal about the affair. “And I can beat myself up as much as I want — it’s not gonna change the situation. So the key thing is, how do you move forward? How do you have a great relationship with your kids?”

Maria and Arnold share four children together, Katherine, who is engaged to actor Chris Pratt, Christina Maria, Patrick Arnold and Christopher Sargent.

Congratulations to Joe on his graduation.
