Mom-to-be Daphne Oz, co-host of "The Chew," has just three months left of her pregnancy, but there’s one person who’s watching the calendar even more closely than Daphne: her father, Dr. Mehmet Oz.

In the new issue of Closer, she shares her dad’s over-the-moon excitement about becoming a grandfather for the first time! “Everyone who talks to him calls me to say, ‘Your dad is riding on cloud nine right now!’” Daphne says. “He’s going to be such a great grandfather.”

And although Daphne says she has no plan to name her baby after her dad, she reveals there is a “raging debate in our house” about what Dr. Oz’s new grandchild will call him. “Right now the front-runners are Lollie for my mom, and Pop for my dad — so it’s Lollie Pop. It’s perfect!”

Asked what kind of granddad she thinks her father will be, Daphne tells Closer, “He’s going to be great. He was a wonderful father. His biggest thing is exhausting children and he’s been waiting for someone to release that energy with again.”
