There is one problem, however: the thought of a grandchild makes him feel old!
Katherine and Chris welcomed their daughter last August, 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 quite nervous to see him with the baby.

“I did all that when I had kids, but I never changed diapers on Lyla, because I think Katherine is the expert gatekeeper. She – every time you touch the baby, she says, “Oh my god! Oh my God! Don’t hold her like that. “I said,” Katherine, come on, now. I have enough children in my hands. I know exactly what I’m doing. I am an expert at that sort of thing. She just panics and just does it [herself.]’
Katherine is clearly a very protective parent, and Arnold thinks he knows why!
As for the actor and politician, it’s all because his daughter is a first-time mom and it’s all normal!
With that being said, he said he understands and doesn’t 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 wonderful parents.
He also shared that he was very practical with his children when they were growing up.
“I participated, and it was a lot of fun doing it.”
