Proud Grandpa Bill Thinks Baby Clinton Is 'The Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread'

While we're used to seeing Bill Clinton talking hardball politics and diplomacy, we've seen a softer side of Grandpa B since the arrival of his first grandchild Charlotte Clinton-Mezvinsky. The former president was on "Late Night with Seth Meyers" Wednesday and when the topic turned to Baby Clinton, the proud grandpa just couldn't stop gushing.

"I love it," Clinton said. "Like every other grandparent, I think my granddaughter's the greatest thing since sliced bread."

He also raved about daughter Chelsea and son-in-law Marc Mezvinsky's parenting skills, calling them "impressive." The first-time parents welcomed Charlotte in September, announcing the birth on social media.

Grandma Hillary Clinton has also professed the joys of grandparenthood, calling it "one of the happiest moments of our life."

And Chelsea and Marc don't have to look far for a babysitter. Bill also said that he and Hillary get to spend plenty of time with the newborn, as they live close by. We have no doubts they're fantastic grandparents. But just to be sure, another former president, George W. Bush, offered Bill advice based on his own experiences: "Be prepared to fall completely in love again. It’s going to be an awesome period," Bush told Clinton at an engagement last year. "Get ready to be, like, the lowest person in the pecking order.”
