The “Junior” star appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Monday, April 26, where he explained that despite his extensive baby experience, his daughter “freaks out” when grandpa holds baby Lyla. Katherine and her husband, Chris Pratt welcomed their beautiful baby girl into the world in August 2020. Papa Terminator says Katherine acts as an “expert gatekeeper” for the little one’s safety.
“I did all of that when I had kids,” Arnold responded when asked if he changes baby Lyla’s diapers. “It was a lot of fun to do that, but I have never changed diapers on Lyla.”
“Katherine is the expert gatekeeper. Whenever you touch the baby, she says, ‘Oh my God! Don’t hold her like this!’ he explained. “I said, ‘Katherine, come on now, I’ve held enough children in my hands… I know exactly what I’m doing! I’m an expert at that stuff,’ but she just freaks out.”
All jokes aside, Arnold said he is “very proud of Katherine and Chris” and thinks they are “doing really great together as parents.” Schwarzenegger was thrilled to become a grandpa, and a source told Hollywood Life that he celebrated Lyla’s birth in August by doing what he does best… smoking a big cigar!
Despite her reservations with Arnold holding Lyla, Katherine has taken to motherhood like a duck to water. The 31-year-old author and influencer has embraced all the non-glamorous mommy moments and often shares them on social media. In December, she shared a hilarious Instagram vs. Reality post (seen below) that perfectly expressed her two different worlds. “Put on real clothes and makeup yesterday for some fun work for the holiday season ??… insta vs reality (mamas can you relate ? ?)” she captioned her funny photos.
