It’s playtime over politics these days for Bill Clinton.

The former president stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers, airing Wednesday at 12:35am on NBC, to discuss his new favorite person: granddaughter Charlotte.

“I love it,” Clinton, 68, tells Meyers in an exclusive clip from Wednesday night’s show. “Like every other grandfather, I think my granddaughter’s the greatest thing since sliced bread.”

Daughter Chelsea, 34, and husband Marc Mezvinsky welcomed Charlotte last September, making Bill and wife Hillary Clinton first-time grandparents.

As for how he’s doing in his new role, Clinton says, “It’s so fun. So far my daughter has not had to discipline [Charlotte’s] overly exuberant grandparents too much.”

But despite his esteemed last position, Clinton says these days he’s up for taking orders instead of giving them. “You know, these young people, they know what the rules are on child rearing,” he jokes with Meyers. “It’s very impressive.”
