Christine Baranski is a new grandmother. She is known fro her roles in The Big Bang Theory and The Good Wife, and now she has another role, the sixty one year old is a first time grandmother. She says her daughter Isabel gave birth just before 2013 Christmas. She has been babysitting whenever she can.
The New York-based actress says,
“My grandchild arrived December 2nd and his name is little Max Murphy and he is, of course, the cutest little kid in the world. And my daughter and her husband live only 20 blocks away so I am the babysitter par excellence (best babysitter)!”
However, Baranski admits her husband, actor and playwright Matthew Cowles, is refusing to let the child call him granddad:
“I think he’s undecided (about what he wants to be called) but it’s not going to be grandpa, it’s going to be something interesting.”
Baranski and Cowles are also proud parents to a daughter named Lily.
