Arnold Schwarzenegger is really looking forward to becoming a grandfather.
The Terminator star is all set to welcome a grandchild when his daughter Katherine Schwarzenegger gives birth to her first child with husband Chris Pratt, and Arnold has said he can't wait to play around with the impending arrival.
The 72-year-old made a virtual appearance at-home episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and spoke about the happy news. When asked about his reaction to Katherine’s pregnancy, the actor said, “Can you believe that. That is really exciting news that Katherine now is pregnant and having a baby,” he told Jimmy.
“I don’t know when exactly. Sometime this summer. Inevitably, I’m really looking forward to playing around with whatever it is, she or he, and having some fun,” he added. Arnold also told Jimmy that there will be a lot of power in the kid’s bloodline given the fact his parents are so talented. He also gushed about the child’s gene pool.
“I think this is kind of a unique experience … just thinking about the gene pool. Think about this for a second…You can do Kennedy, Schwarzenegger and Pratt,” he said.
“We can do anything. We can go and solve the Cuban Missile Crisis, we can go and kill predators with our bare hands and we go and train dinosaurs,” he joked.
Arnold also quipped about how he does not want the child to inherit his heavy accent. Chris and Katherine exchanged vows in 2019 and in April, it was reported that the 30-year-old author is pregnant with her first baby.
This will be The Guardian Of The Galaxy star’s second child. Chris shares a 7-year-old son Jack with ex-wife Anna Faris.
