In November, the legendary singer welcomed her first grandchild. But how does she cope with that role?

Barbra talks about being a grandma

In a rare interview with The Times, Streisand talked about having a grandkid for the very first time. Technically, she is a step-grandmother as her stepson, Josh Brolin, welcomed a baby girl with his wife Kathryn, whom they named Westlyn.

Streisand gushed about the little girl, calling her one of her “accomplishments.” She said:

Oh my gosh! That, to me, is a real accomplishment, to have this little baby, this live thing in my life.

The Broadway star also shared that she even changed Westlyn‘s diaper, proving she’s a hands-on grandmother. Brolin commented that Barbra’s Jewish roots have an effect on her new role.

He revealed:

She is really into it and I love that she is into it. I mean, it’s like very typical Jewish grandmother who is saturated by this event. It’s awesome.

Streisand has nailed so many things in her life so it’s not surprising that being a first-time granny is a piece of cake for her as well.
