Shortly after little Lucian celebrated his first birthday, Nicolas told People he enjoyed being a granddad:

I love it. Every second.

He told the magazine how much he loves his family and enjoys spending time with them:

It’s always great to have my family with me wherever I go and wherever I can. I always want to be there to support my kids in all the wonderful things they do.

When People asked Weston what kind of grandfather Nicolas is and whether he babysits his grandson, Weston said:

Sometimes. Lucian is very rowdy. So we all take turns making sure he’s stimulated. My dad loves him. He’s a phenomenal grandfather.

Lucian’s birth helped Weston change his ways and brought him closer with his dad. In 2016, Weston welcomed his second son, Sorin, much to Nicolas’ delight.
