Arnold Schwarzenegger has revealed that he is “really looking forward” to becoming a grandfather as his daughter Katherine Schwarzenegger is due this summer. The 72-year-old actor’s daughter is set to welcome her first child with husband Chris Pratt. During an appearance on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, the actor said that he can’t wait to ‘have some fun’ with the baby.
He said during the show, “Yeah, can you believe that? I mean, that is really exciting news that Katherine now, you know be pregnant and have a baby - I don't know when exactly. Sometime this summer. And, inevitably, I'm really looking forward to playing around with whatever it is, she or he, and have some fun.''

He further said, “I think this is kind of a unique experience but I was just thinking about the gene pool. I mean, think about this for a second: It is part Kennedy and part--you know, there's three gene pools here. You can do Kennedy, Schwarzenegger and Pratt.” His former wife, journalist Maria Shriver is the daughter of Eunice Kennedy Shriver, a philanthropist and a member of the Kennedy family.
He further said, “I mean, we can do anything. We can go and solve the Cuban Missile Crisis, we can go and kill Predators with our bare hands and we go and train dinosaurs. I mean, think about this. That is a lot of power here.” However, the Austrian-born American actor quipped the baby doesn’t inherit his accent. He joked and said, “Worst thing is if this kid ends up, you know, with my accent. That’s what we don’t want.”
