He loves being a grandfather 

Mehmet said to Closer Weekly that he considered himself to be a "doting" grandparent and said: “I play with them all the time. They want to see me because, when they do see me, they’re going to do something fun. I always want to do something active and I want to see how they react if things don’t go well.”

He joked: "My wife says I’m a meddler because I nudge them all the time. I want them to swim in the pool with me, running around, going places."

When asked if he goes overboard when it comes to his grandkids he said: "Terribly."
