He may have been at the 'Sportsman of the Year' gala, but on Tuesday night, Bill Clinton had no problem gushing about his newborn granddaughter, Charlotte.
While referring to the evening's 'Sportsman of the Year' — San Francisco Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner — Bill, 68, told the crowd at the 'Sports Illustrated' event he would love to take Charlotte to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum to learn about the game when she's "old enough to go."

And during his introduction of 'SportsKid of the Year,' Mo'ne Davis, the former president again hinted he's hopeful his granddaughter will one day play sports.

"I saw Mo'ne Davis pitch several times and it was awesome — and now that I have a granddaughter, who so far is in the 95th percentile in size for her age," Bill quipped before returning to the honoree to add, "She is a remarkable young woman."

Bill and Hillary Clinton's daughter, Chelsea Clinton, 34, and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, welcomed Charlotte on Sept. 26, 2014. She is the first child for the couple, who married on July 31, 2010, in Rhinebeck, N.Y.
Following the birth of her first grandchild, Hillary, 67, took to Twitter to post a photo [see above] of her, Bill and the newborn with the caption, ".@BillClinton and I are over the moon to be grandparents! One of the happiest moments of our life."
