When your grandchildren’s names are Apple and Moses, you can’t just go by “Grandma” or “Nana.”
In an interview with Access Hollywood, Blythe Danner reveals the unique nickname given to her by her first grandchild, Apple Martin, that’s seemed to stick for the past 7 years.
“They call me ‘Lalo,’ (lah-lo)” Danner tells Kit Hoover and guest co-host Arsenio Hall. “Apple actually named me that.
I had all these names picked out,” the actress recalls. “I love dogs, so I was going to have them call me ‘Woof.’ That didn’t take.”
So how did Apple come up with Lalo?
“I was sitting there, she was there in her high chair – she could barely talk,” says Blythe. “And I said, ‘Who am I? Am I Woof?’ And she went, ‘No. No, no.’ And I came up with a few other names, and I said, ‘Well, who am I?’ And she said, ‘Lalo.’ And then she laughed for about a minute – hysterically – and an hour later, I was still Lalo.”
Hmm… Lalo or Woof – which do you prefer?
