Dr. Phil announced on his show in October that his 30-year-old son Jay and his wife, Erica McGraw, 31, have a baby on the way. The good doc recently blogged about his excitement – and nervousness – about being a first-time grandparent.
As many of you may know, my daughter-in-law, Erica, will soon deliver our beautiful granddaughter.
Although most folks are familiar with calm and level-headed Dr. Phil, this granddad-to-be is quakin’ in his boots! I’ve raised two boys; I’m so out of my element. I have no idea what to do with a little girl!
When I first see my new grandchild, I’m sure I’ll be loaded down with so many Baby Gap dresses — not to mention teddy bears, baby booties and pink hair ribbons — unless she takes after her grandfather. Just kidding! By the way, I have promised Jay that I won’t be reading the little one bedtime stories from Self Matters or Relationship Rescue. There’s plenty of time for that later!”
Do you think Dr. Phil will be a good grandpa?
