Arnold Schwarzenegger would love nothing more than to spend some quality time and to also help her daughter out with her baby. However, it turns out that Katherine Schwarzenegger always freaks out every time she sees him near the 8 month old baby girl she shares with Chris Pratt!
While chatting with Jimmy Kimmel on his talk show, Arnold gushed that he feels ‘fantastic’ as a grandparent.
However, there is one problem – the thought of having a grandchild makes him feel old!
Katherine and Chris welcomed their daughter in August of last year, making the action movie star a first time grandfather.
While Arnold wants to get close to his first granddaughter, he shared that his daughter is pretty nervous to see him around the baby.
‘I did all that when I had kids, but I have never changed diapers on Lyla, because I think Katherine’s the expert gatekeeper. She – whenever you touch the baby, says, ‘Oh my god! Oh my god! Do not hold her like this.’ I said, ‘Katherine, come on, now. I have held quite enough kids in my hands. I know exactly what I am doing. I am an expert in that stuff.’ She just freaks out and just does it [herself.]’
Katherine is obviously a very protective parent and Arnold thinks he knows the reason why!
As far as the actor and politician is concerned, it’s all due to his daughter being a first time mom and it’s all normal!
With that being said, he mentioned that he understands and does not take it personally at all!
Earlier in the same interview, Arnold raved about how proud he is of both Katherine and Chris for being such great parents.
He also shared that he was very hands on with his children when they were growing up.
‘I participated, and it was a lot of fun to do that.’
