Arnold Schwarzenegger returned for daily heart surgery to get a new aortic valve a week after his reveal.
On Friday, the actor and former California governor smiled as he drove through Los Angeles. Schwarzenegger posted an update on his health on Twitter last week, writing, "Thanks to the Cleveland Clinic team, I have a new aortic valve to match my new pulmonary valve from my last surgery."
The star added, "I feel fantastic and have already walked the streets of Cleveland to enjoy your amazing statues. Thanks to every doctor and nurse on my team!"

Schwarzenegger also shared the news on his Instagram and three of his children, Katherine (30) and Patrick (27) and Joseph Baena (23) commented on the post. The new mother left the heart and prayed hand emojis while Patrick wrote: "PLEASE DO NOT GO OUT TODAY !!"
"I love you dad! How do you hit a lat spread ???" Baena added.
The actor shares Katherine, Patrick, Christina (29) and Christopher (23) with ex-wife Maria Shriver. He is also the father of Baena from a previous relationship with Mildred Baena.
Schwarzenegger's surgery is done two years after heart surgery to replace an earlier replacement of the pulmonary valve.

The Terminator star was supposed to have a less invasive catheter valve inserted, but then it was decided he needed open heart surgery instead, his then-spokesman said.
Schwarzenegger had both an aortic valve and a pulmonary valve replaced in 1997 due to a congenital heart defect.
