Katherine Schwarzenegger’s daughter has lit up grandfather Arnold Schwarzenegger’s life!
Legendary actor Arnold Schwarzenegger recently appeared on an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, on Monday, April 26, and the “Terminator” star had a lot to say about his daughter Katherine Schwarzenegger and her daughter Lyla.
According to E Online, Katherine Schwarzenegger welcomed her baby daughter to this world in August 2020 with husband Chris Pratt. When asked about how it feels like to be a grandfather by host Jimmy Kimmel, the 73-year-old action star replied, “Fantastic. The only thing is, it makes me feel old to think about, now I have a grandchild. But it’s really great having a grandchild. It’s a beautiful, beautiful baby—baby Lyla—and I’m very proud of Katherine and Chris. They’re doing really great together as parents.”
The new mother is apparently a ‘gatekeeper’ when it comes to Lyla
Jimmy Kimmel went on to ask whether the ‘Commando’ actor ever had to babysit his granddaughter. To which the actor confirmed that Katherine Schwarzenegger hardly lets her father near her daughter. She is very territorial in that way.
“I did all of that when I had kids,” said the actor. “When my kids were growing up, I participated, and it was a lot of fun to do that. But I have never changed diapers on Lyla, because I think that Katherine is the expert gatekeeper. She just, whenever you touch the baby, says, ‘Oh, my god! Oh, my god! Like this,’” he continued. “I said, ‘Katherine, come on, now. I’ve held enough children in my hands. I know exactly what I’m doing. I’m an expert in that stuff.’ She just freaks out and does it. [But] I think it’s natural,” he added.
Fun times with Whiskey and Lulu
Host Jimmy Kimmel also mentioned that any child will have a great time in Schwarzenegger’s house given that he lets his miniature horse Whiskey and donkey Lulu loiter about freely inside his home. Spending time with the animals must be a joyous time for Katherine Schwarzenegger’s daughter.
“She has already been over here several times at the house, and she sat on top of Lulu and on top of Whiskey,” confirmed Arnold. “And I think she’s going to be a great horseback rider,” he added.
Seems like the new grandfather is having a blessed time with his grandchild despite Katherine Schwarzenegger’s protests.
