Arnold Schwarzenegger Cracks Jokes While Talking About His Pacemaker

Arnold Schwarzenegger, or TV Dad as he calls himself, is cracking jokes after revealing he had to have a pacemaker put on his heart.

In a recent episode of his Arnold’s Pump Club podcast, Schwarzenegger revealed he became “a little bit more of a machine” after doctors made the decision to put a pacemaker on his heart.

The decision comes after doctors detected the legendary actor and former politician had an irregular heart beat. After undergoing the procedure, Schwarzenegger told his fans that he’s “doing great.”

Schwarzenegger revealed that while news of his irregular heartbeat is new to the public, it’s a condition he’s been dealing with for quite some time. “It had been like that for a few years, so I stayed in touch with my medical team and visited in person at least once a year to get a full check-up and see how my heart was doing,” he said.

But now with the pacemaker in place, fans are wondering how this will affect his career as an action star. And Arnold Schwarzenegger is using humor to assuage his fans’ fears.

On X, Schwarzenegger shared a photo of himself lounging outside his home and thanked his fans for the “many kind messages” he received “from all over the world.

“A lot of people have asked if my pacemaker will cause any problems with FUBAR Season 2. Absolutely not. I will be ready to film in April, and you can only see it if you’re really looking for it,” Schwarzenegger joked as the picture shows him wearing a fake makeshift explosive device on his chest.
