Dr. Phil reflected on his grandparent role by saying: "This is such a life-changing event... No single emotion can describe what Robin and I are going through. With the arrival of a new generation in the family, we suddenly realize where we are in the continuum of life. We are definitely going to spend the next chapter of our lives being the best grandparents we can. We absolutely cannot wait to provide unconditional love, kindness, patience, humor, comfort, lessons in life — as well as cookies, and extra spending money, and on and on. We have promised ourselves that we will be the kind of grandparents who are always short on criticism, long on love and respectful of her parents' guidelines in shaping their daughter. Robin and I … gladly accept the challenge to make her the most spoiled granddaughter on the globe!"

Wife Robin McGraw has stated: "I didn't realize how deep a love you can have for a grandchild. I'm not saying it's a deeper love than (for) my own children, but I'm saying it is the most beautiful love. I love her so much."

Dr. Phil McGraw, best known as ‘Dr. Phil' is a psychologist, best-selling author and host of the Dr. Phil television program, which debuted in 2002. He first gained celebrity status with appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show in the late 1990s. The format of his syndicated daily television show is an advice program, where he tackles a different topic each episode, offering advice for his guests' troubles. In 2003, McGraw announced the formation of the Dr. Phil Foundation, which raises funds to fight childhood obesity. The Foundation also supports charitable organizations that help address the emotional, spiritual and monetary needs of many children and families. McGraw is also a private pilot, with an instrument rating, flying single engine airplanes. He learned he would be a grandfather while vacationing in Italy, and became a grandfather on March 18, 2010 when granddaughter Avery Elizabeth McGraw was born to his
son Jay McGraw and daughter-in-law Erica Dahm-McGraw.

"There are 70 million grandparents in the U.S., with 5,000 baby boomers becoming grandparents every day," said Christine Crosby, founder and publisher, GRAND magazine. "Readers admire yet also identify with Dr. Phil as representing the modern grandparent: active in the lives of their grandchildren and loving it – and yes, of course, being sexy too."
