Michael Douglas has admitted he is yet to feel the infamous ’empty nest syndrome’ since becoming a grandfather at the age of 73.
The acting legend told Lorraine Kelly on Wednesday that despite his joy at welcoming a grandchild through oldest son Cameron, 39, he doesn’t shout it from the rooftops as his youngest daughter is still living at home.
Michael – who has been married to actress Catherine Zeta-Jones for 17 years – also told Lorraine the hilarious calls he can receive from his father Kirk since he discovered Facetime.
Legendary: Michael Douglas has spoken about his family life after becoming a grandfather at the age of 73, telling Lorraine Kelly his 101-year-old father Kirk has discovered Facetime
Michael chatted to Lorraine about all things family as he promoted his newest film Ant Man And Wasp, saying wife Catherine is doing ‘wonderful’, as his second son Dylan is preparing for university.
He said: ‘Catherine is wonderful it’s a great time, Dylan is off to college next year, my oldest son is acting, he made me a grandfather, it’s great, I’m really happy about it.’
Michael added that despite the joy at the new arrival, he is yet to feel the ’empty nest syndrome’ – felt my many parents when their children move out – as his youngest daughter Carys, 15, is still living at home.
‘I still have a kid in the house, grandchildren are great when you’re an empty nester, then you’re so happy to have a little baby back,’ he said.
Michael also told Lorraine that he hopes his family will continue the famous Douglas film dynasty, as his brothers Joel, Peter and Eric (who passed away in 2004) have all gone on to work in the entertainment industry.

The Wall Street star also revealed that despite being 101 years young, his legendary actor father Kirk has recently discovered Facetime.
He said: ‘The greatest thing for him is he’s discovered Facetime, he loves it, it really gives him a chance to see. I can be at dinner and he’ll call me and want to see who I’m with. I’ll be like ‘look this is my dad!’ I’ll show him out the window. He leans in real close he loves it.’
Michael also said that despite being in the later stages of his life, he shows no signs of showing down, and has already out-lived his long-serving personal trainer.
‘He works out with a trainer at 101, he was 90 and he had a guy who he worked out with for more than 30 years. I went to see Dad one day, and he said Mike’s died. I asked how old he was. He was 94.’

Michael was chatting to Lorraine all about his latest film Ant-Man and the Wasp, which is the sequel to the 2015 superhero film based around the insect hero.
Despite half a decade in the film industry, he said it is the first he has worked with screen siren Michelle Pfeiffer, who plays his wife Janet Van Dyne in the film, after she has spent 30 years trapped in an alternative realm.
‘It has a wonderful sense of humour, I really attribute that to our director Peyton Reed and Paul Rudd. It’s much more a family film, because of the comedy, and Dr Hank Pym ends up working with her daughter. Our search for my long lost wife, there’s a real family commitment.
‘I had admired Michelle from afar, I was a very excited big fan, she was stunning looking. Then when I was reading the script, I thought we get to play 30 years younger.
‘To make you look younger the technical affects people had to put these black spots on your face here, so when you come in to do your scene, Michelle has got black pimples, we had a good laugh.’
Much loved: The acting heavyweight also chatted about his new film Ant Man and the Wasp, saying it was the first time he had starred in a big-budget green-screen blockbuster
Michael also revealed that it was his son Dylan who suggested he appear in the Marvel sequel, saying it would a whole new path for his career after decades of dramatic roles.
‘We finished the first one and my son, who was 15 at the time, he came out and he was looking very pensive at me and said this is very good for your career. There’s a whole new audience for you with this picture, he said you should think about doing a sequel.
‘I had never done one of these green screen movies, this is my 50th year in the biz.
‘I’m always going on what I thought would be a good movie, not really thought about which part, just looking for a good film, but I never had done a green screen. This one got a whole lot more appreciation for acting when there’s nothing there.’
Busy: Michael said he hopes his family continue the Douglas acting dynasty, and the whole family are doing ‘wonderfully’
