16 Stars You'd Never Guess Are Grandparents

If you're just now realizing that today is National Grandparents Day, stop what you're doing and get on the horn to Gammy and Pop-Pop. Those two have been up since 4 a.m. waiting for your call.
Okay, now that you've sorted that out, take a moment to wrap your head around this mind-boggling fact: Betty White doesn't have any grandkids. But, Ice-T does. What?

The "Cop Killer" rapper isn't the only still-kicking-it celebrity whose babies have had babies. From supermodels to rock stars to action heroes, these stars should all be getting a Hallmark card and a bag of Werther's Original on this, their very special day.
Sure, the fact that celebs who don't seem that much older than you are actually grandparents might make you feel old. On the other hand, there's a lot to be said for having grandbabies and still looking this good. Get down with your bad self, Mee-Maw.

Jade Jagger

Mick Jagger's It Girl daughter, Jade, became a granny at age 41 when her daughter, Assisi, delivered a baby girl this May. Not to be outdone, Jagger gave birth to a son the following month. That means Assisi's baby is a month older than her uncle, and that Mick Jagger is a great-grandfather. Zoinks.
