Tom Hanks enjoys being ‘grand dad’ to ‘magnificent’ Olivia
Washington: Looks like Tom Hanks has been enjoying his first-time experience as a grandfather as he has came up with a timetable to get his son Colin’s daughter at her very best.
The ‘Cast Away’ star’s eldest son and his wife became parents to baby girl Olivia in February and Hanks admitted that he has been enjoying his time with the young toddler.
"My granddaughter is magnificent... (but) I just don’t see her enough. I have gone from being a terrifying presence in her life - because I’m a big guy and I’m not her dad or mom, and I yell... ‘Who’s that little girl? Who’s that little girl? I know you! You’re so cute!’ I’m just this weird, loud, ogre-like guy that comes in,” a website quoted him as saying.
“So, then I worked on it. I timed out my visits. I got there early in the morning when she had had a good, solid nap and a nice meal and I was able to charm her,” he said.
“I got her to laugh, I got her to smile, I got her to giggle,” he added.
