Chelsea Clinton‘s daughter, Charlotte, is growing up fast and grandma Hillary Clinton couldn’t be prouder.

Being a grandmother is “the most amazing experience,” the Democratic hopeful said during an appearance on The View Tuesday morning. “It is like falling in love all over again. It is the best experience. And of course, when you have the most amazing, extraordinary 18-month-old granddaughter … brilliant beyond words.”

Clinton, 68, added that she has arranged her busy campaign schedule around visits with her granddaughter, who will become a big sister early this summer.

“I get separation anxiety if I don’t get to see her. Now FaceTime was invented for grandparents. And that has been such a gift because I can be anywhere and FaceTime her, see her eating her lunch or racing around.”

“So I try to stay in touch and it’s so exciting because she calls me ‘Grandma,’ she calls Bill [Clinton] ‘Pop Pop,’ ” the former secretary of state said. “That’s what Chelsea called my father.”

“It’s the best,” she added with a big smile.
