Jim Carrey’s new film Mr. Popper’s Penguins opens June 17, but it’s his grandson that has all of his attention!
Carrey is ecstatic about his 14-month-old grandson, Jackson Riley Santana, that his daughter, Jane, gave birth to earlier this year.
Jackson is described as “the coolest dude on earth, unless he gets tired and then he’s a marauding maniac.”
“What happened to me is, first of all, it was like, ‘Grandfather? Really? Wow. Let me process that one,’” Carrey tells Access Hollywood of his initial reaction to the news.
But despite the initial shock, Carrey is Jackson’s biggest fan!
“He’s so clued in and we play soccer together and he’s really coordinated, it’s amazing,” says the comedic actor. “I’m going, ‘Get him in! Get him in! I’m the grandfather that wants to improve him and stuff like that. ‘Start reading to him right now! While he’s playing soccer! He must be a super being!’”
Can you believe that Jim Carrey is a grandfather?
