They may have immense power, fame and wealth, but Bill Clinton and Richard Branson are putty in the hands of their new grandkids
How nice to see world-class alpha males showing their softer side… and it’s all thanks to three tiny tots.
Taking a break from business and politics, Virgin’s Richard Branson and former US president Bill Clinton have given us a glimpse into their new roles as doting granddads.
‘I love it. Like every other grandparent, I think my granddaughter's the greatest thing since sliced bread,’ Clinton revealed on the Late Night with Seth Meyers show. Bill and wife Hilary – rumoured to declare her candidacy for president any day now – are enraptured with baby Charlotte, born last September to their daughter Chelsea.
And in true new-grandparent fashion, they’ve been seeing as much of the bub as they can, with Bill confessing that Chelsea hasn’t had to ‘discipline her over-exuberant parents… yet!’
Richard Branson’s also joined the Grandad Club, blogging this week about the ‘quality time’ he was spending with daughter Holly’s new twins Etta and Artie.
Sharing a cute pic, he admitted that he had been trying to stop himself from ‘posting too many photos of our gorgeous new grandchildren, but like any proud granddad I can't resist!’
