Speaking to Parents magazine's We Are Family podcast recently, she opened up about how much she adored the role and being part of Luca's life.
"I'm so nuts about this child," she said. "I'm certainly not the first person to have a grandchild—I realize that, but what I like is seeing Kirby become a mother herself.
"She's so good at it. She and her husband, Virgil, are such great partners," Gayle added.
The Oprah magazine editor also spoke about how much work she put into being a mother herself when her daughter was first born, saying: "Your whole world revolves around this little creature that comes into your lives.

Gayle continued: "When my kids were coming up, I did not have one of these households where I want to be your friend."
"I had a very clear, I am the boss here. This is not a democracy. I do want to hear your opinion. Your opinion matters to me. But at the end of the day, I get to be the one that makes a call."
