Arnold Schwarzenegger pays tribute to his late mother ahead of her birthday.
Schwarzenegger, who turned 75 on Saturday, took to Twitter on Friday to share several photos with his mother, Aurelia Jadrny. She died in 1998.
“Today my mother, Aurelia, would have turned 100,” the ‘Terminator’ star wrote. “She was the best mother you could imagine and I will always love her. I can’t explain how much she meant to me, but that’s the number one reason I won’t call myself self-taught. “
He continued: “She showed me unconditional love, the importance of keeping my house clean, how to make the perfect schnitzel and patience. Lots of patience. Be sure to tell your mothers how much they mean to you. !”

Aurelia died while visiting her late husband, Gustav, in her native Austria in 1998. On his grave, Aurelia suffered a heart attack and collapsed. She was airlifted to a nearby hospital, but eventually died.
As the former California governor honors his mother, his daughter Katherine honors her milestone birthday. Katherine, 32, took to Instagram on Saturday and shared an image from her childhood with her father.
She wrote, “Happy birthday daddy!! We love you so much! You are the best and funniest opa and daddy and we are all so lucky to have you in our lives! Happy happy!!”

Katherine is married to ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ star Chris Pratt. In February, Schwarzenegger gushed about his son-in-law and called him a “fantastic guy.”
“It’s the easiest thing to be a grandfather,” he shared on an episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
“They come over to the house, you play with Lyla for about an hour or two, you put her on the horse, you put her with the dog,” the actor explained. “And after two hours they leave. It’s fantastic! I have a great time when they come home.”
