Clinton, 68, stopped to chat with Ellen DeGeneres on her Tuesday show and was over the moon about his granddaughter Charlotte. His daughter Chelsea's baby will be 6 weeks on Friday, and he says that the little one is just taking it all in.
"She almost doesn't have time to laugh. She never cries. She just soaks things up," he says of Charlotte. "I think, 'My God. If my mind worked like that I'd be so happy.'"
He said of the former Secretary of State, "She's a dotting, giddy, deliriously happy grandmother."
As for who spoils Charlotte more, him or Hillary, Clinton says there's no time for that. "Ya know, we’re both, I told Hillary right when we we’re going to the hospital for Chelsea to give birth and I said, 'Now we have to remember this is not our child,'" he says laughing. "We have to show up when we’re invited and do what we’re asked. I suppose we’ll have a chance to spoil her, but we haven’t yet. She’s too busy soaking things up."
Chelsea and her husband Marc Mezvinsky may have needed the Clintons to babysit on Monday night as it was the first time Chelsea had made a public appearance since giving birth. All smiles, the couple attended the Glamour 2014 Women Of The Year Awards at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
Clinton's views on being a grandfather have changed a bit since his daughter had the baby. See why the former president told ET's Nancy O'Dell that he felt like he was in labor while Chelsea was pregnant!
