Arnold Schwarzenegger's daughter Katherine recalls being 'mortified' by dad dropping her off at school

Just because they're famous, doesn't mean they're not embarrassing like regular parents...

It doesn't matter who your parents are because the chances are, they're going to do things that embarrass you.

This is something Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt knows all too well, because being the daughter of one of the most recognisable actors of all time comes with its cringeworthy moments.

In fact, Katherine has revealed how she felt 'mortified' when her famous father, Arnold Schwarzenegger, insisted on dropping her off at school - but let's just say, he wasn't exactly dropping her off in a Volvo like the other kids.

Speaking on The Nikki and Brie Show, the 33-year-old said: "I remember the only time really realising like, ‘Okay, this is different,’ because my dad would drop us off at school in a Hummer that had no windows, no doors and no roof, and I was mortified.

"He would pull up to carpool and I was [like], ‘Can you please drop me off down the street? Please, I’m so embarrassed. Can we please just take the minivan? Like, this is not my vibe. I just don’t like this at all'."

Luckily, as Katherine got older, she learned to appreciate her dad and the influence he's had on so many people around the world - but it did add extra challenges when it came to the likes of dating.

"And then as I got older, the boys in my grade became much more interested in my dad. That was the time where I was like, ‘Okay, this is different for me'."

It turns out Arnold Schwarzenegger was a pretty embarrassing dad at times.

But while the self-help author might've found her father's fame a bit off-putting, there's a good chance her own kids may feel a similar way in years to come, after she welcomed two children with husband Chris Pratt.

The pair share two daughters, two-year-old Lyla and Eloise, one.

And, it seems Schwarzenegger is relishing life as a grandfather, with him telling People how proud he is seeing his daughter become a mom.

"It's nice to see your kids having kids themselves and to watch this new dimension," he said.

"You see them growing up and you see them going to school and getting smart and getting their degrees, getting their jobs and all this, but now seeing them be a parent? It's fantastic. It's really great.

"I just love when she comes over to my house or when I go over there, but most of the time she comes to my house because I have all the animals.

"The grandchildren love the animals. I have a pig, so now they want to come over there and feed the pig all the time, hang out with the little pig."
