Schwarzenegger, 75, discussed the new addition to his family for the first time ever during a sit-down with FOX 11’s Elex Michaelson for The Issue Is.

The Austrian native said the piglet was getting along well with his other pets: A donkey, a miniature horse, and a dog.

“I always liked that he was into pigs; he has this little pig that he takes everywhere,” Schwarzenegger said, according to The Columbus Dispatch.

“So I bought a pig right after that,” the actor admitted. “The only thing is, I must’ve bought the wrong one because, in no time, it was 300 pounds and I could barely lift the son of a gun.”
