Sarah Ferguson has been bonding with her grandson, August, over the past few months — and she is having a blast!
"It's so funny because when August smiles at me now, because he's seven and a half months, you actually know he genuinely likes you," she told HELLO! magazine. "It's not a put-on smile, he genuinely finds me very funny which is quite lucky."
Ferguson's eldest daughter, Princess Beatrice, welcomed a little girl named Sienna recently, and she is in awe of how her daughters — she also shares Princess Eugenie with ex Prince Andrew — have been adjusting to motherhood.
"My children are phenomenal mothers. They were great children but now they're phenomenal mothers. And now, I have these two exceptional grandchildren all in one year," she gushed. "You know it's pretty incredible, but everyone asks me, 'How are your grandchildren?' Well, firstly, I look at my girls being wonderful mothers and then I see these incredible beings."
The red-headed beauty previously raved about her grandkids.
"Being 61 makes me a young grandma, and I love it. I smile from my heart every day, because that is how it feels to be a granny," the red-headed beauty told Good Housekeeping. "I have so many fun ideas of things to do with my grandchildren, and of course they’re a perfect new audience for all my children’s books.”
She also gave her girls some wisdom to bestow onto their kids.
"When your children walk on their own journeys, please teach them to be authentic to themselves, like I taught you. Tell them to always try to turn to joy —to see nature, hear the birds sing, feel the rain droplets that make trees smile. Believe in fairies and the magic of every day. Never give up on the road to smiles and rainbows, and remember the saying 'This too shall pass, like the clouds in the sky,'" she said.
