Brett Favre was the first grandfather to play in the NFL. In 2010, when he was only 40, his oldest daughter, Brittany, gave birth to her first son, Parker, at age 21.
Favre is now 50 with two grandsons. Everyone said he was a little too old for the NFL, but he seems a little young to be a grandpa!
Cee Lo Green
Cee Lo Green became a grandparent when he was only 35 years old in 2010. His step-daughter, Sierra, daughter of Christina Johnson, had her son when she was 20.
Although Green is not Sierra’s real dad, he is definitely the father figure in her life, and her son calls him “Poppi.” So cute!
Not only is she a grandmother, Whoopi Goldberg is also a great-grandmother! She became a grandmother at the ripe old age of 34 when her daughter Alex gave birth to her daughter, Amarah Skye in 1989, then later became a great-grandmother at 58 when Amarah gave birth to her daughter, Charli Rose, in 2014.
Some may see having babies so young as a burden, but Goldberg could possibly live to see her great-great grandchildren, and how many people get to say that?!
Mama June Shannon
If you’ve seen Toddlers & Tiaras or Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, then you know Mama June. Her daughter, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, gave birth to her first daughter in 2017, making Mama June Grandmama June.

Kiefer Sutherland & Donald Sutherland
This is a two-for-one! Famous actor Donald Sutherland is the father of Kiefer Sutherland, another famous actor. Kiefer became a grandfather when he was only 39 years old when his step-daughter Michelle Kath, who he raised as his own, had her first son, Hamish, in 2005
This means that Kiefer’s father, Donald Sutherland, became a great-grandfather at age 70, a time when most people still have mostly young grandchildren.
Jim Carrey became a grandfather at 47 years old when his then-23-year-old daughter, Jane Carrey, had her first son, Jackson, with her husband.

Although it’s up for debate just how many grandchildren Nene Leakes has from her son Bryson Bryant, Bryant claims his daughter Bri’Asia, born in 2010, as his own, and so does Leakes.
She has been private with showing off her “glam baby” on social media, but this “glamma” sure seems to love spending time with her!

Charlie Sheen’s daughter Cassandra, born in 1984 to his girlfriend Paula Profit, gave birth to Sheen’s first grandchild in 2013 when he was only 47 years old.
Cassandra is the oldest daughter of Charlie Sheen, and her daughter is now 7 years old. This is remarkable considering the fact that Sheen’s youngest children, twins, are only 11. Imagine having uncles who were only four years older than you!

Unfortunately, Broadus’s third child and second son, Kai Love, died at only 10 days old in 2019. Snoop loves his family, and this was hard for all of them.

Ice T became a grandfather in 1995 at only 37 years old when his 19-year-old daughter, Letesha Marrow, gave birth to her son, Elyjah.
It’s surprising that Ice T is a grandpa because his youngest daughter with his current wife, Coco, is only 4, while his grandson is now 25 years old. This means 44-year-old Letesha is 40 years older than her youngest sibling!
Another star with children of drastically different ages, Terrence Howard welcomed his first grandchild, Hazel, in 2012. At only 43, his 18-year-old daughter, Aubrey, had the baby girl with her husband.

Great-grandpa Bob Marley would have been 72 when this great-grandson was born. It would have been really special if he were alive to meet him.
According to a tweet in 2012 from Flavor Flav himself, he has four grandchildren, and possibly more by now. He was quite young for a grandparent, but he does have eight children.
In fact, he welcomed his eighth child into the world in 2019 at the age of 60. He might have been a young grandpa, but he is also an old parent of a baby!

Brooks has lots of pride in his family, and we bet that when he sees his granddaughters, they get the sweetest serenades and lullabies.
One of the more fabulous of the grandparents on our list, Kris Jenner is not someone you would look at and say “Yep, she’s a grandma.” In reality, this reality TV star has 10 grandchildren at age 64.
If you’ve been keeping up with the Kardashians, you would have already known this, but it’s not something you would immediately think when you see her.

At 56 years old, this former Governor of Alaska has three grandchildren, all from her daughter Bristol, now 29. Bristol’s pregnancy with her first child, Tripp, in 2008 was a hot topic once her mother joined as the Vice Presidential Candidate on the Presidential Ticket of Senator John McCain because she was only 17 at the time and not married to the child’s father.
The couple were engaged, but eventually called it off in 2009. Bristol later got married in 2016 to another man who she then had two more children with, but they divorced in 2018. While many people know of Sarah Palin’s status as a grandmother, it’s not as common for a woman to have three grandchildren at 56.
