Minnesota Sen. Al Franken – also known to SNL fans as the character Stuart Smalley – became a grandfather Thursday!

"Franni and I are thrilled that our grandson Joseph Bryson Greenwald was born [May 30]," Franken said Tuesday. "He came in at 6 lbs. 11 oz. ... Somehow, in the last few hours, Franni and I have already managed to spoil the baby."

Of proud parents Thomasin Franken and Brody Greenwald, Franken added: "Mother and baby are healthy and happy."

As for Franni, she's just thrilled for her new title. "This has been an amazing experience for our family and I'm just so filled with love, joy and happiness," she said. "Just call me grandma."
