Johanna Griggs on the most common thing people say about her being a grandmother.

Johanna Griggs may be 44, but by no means does she think she is “too young” to be a grandma.

Appearing on the Morning Show on Thursday morning, Griggs said since the birth of her first grandson, many fans have told her she is “too young” to be the grandmother of a baby boy.

“They do. [However] I’ve been around for so long it’s like dog years, I feel like I should measure my life in dinosaur years! I feel like I’m actually 1000 years old,” she said.

“However in actual fact I’m 44 [and husband] Todd turned 44 on Friday. We’re so excited that we are young parents… we now have these grown-up adult gorgeous young men in our lives.”

Griggs herself was only in her early twenties when she had her two sons Joe and Jessie with ex-husband Gary Sweet.

“To be a young grandparent and be young enough to do things with them and to be able to help them out … I think it is awesome,” she told the show.

When baby Jax – the son of Joe – entered the world, Griggs announced the news on Instagram.

“Meet our gorgeous grandson… he is beyond exquisite,” she wrote, adding Joe and partner Katie were “completely calm and over the moon” about their new arrival.

“Both families are ecstatic with the safe arrival of this much loved little man,” she said.
