She looks nothing like her age, and now Susan Sarandon is a grandma for the first time too.

Her daughter, actress Eva Amurri Martino, gave birth to baby daughter Marlowe Mae Martino on Aug. 9.

The 29-year-old and her sports analyst husband Kyle, 33, “are thrilled and enjoying the new addition to their family,” said their rep.

“Mama and Daddy love you a zillion, Marlowe Mae,” posted the new mum.

As for grandma, she doesn’t want to be called that. Little Marlowe will be doted on by “Honey.”

“I borrowed this name from a very dear friend of mine who’s from the South, and his grandma was ‘Honey,’” Susan said.

Speaking of names, she’s OK with her new granddaughter’s “unusual” one because “It’s not a vegetable, a city or a place. It’s a real name … I really like it.”

And true to grandma, sorry, Honey, form, “I plan to just completely go against everything my daughter’s trying to do and spoil them completely.”

Actress Christina Ricci has also become a mum for the first time with news she and her husband have welcomed a son. The 34-year-old actress met camera technician James Heerdegen on the set of her retro TV show Pan Am and married her “favourite person on Earth” in October. The baby’s name has not yet been released.

Congratulations to both lucky actresses – and to Susan “Honey” Sarandon as well!

  • wow what a cool baby name! i can believe that she is a grandma because she has had a long career in show biz


  • She’s looking good, I like ‘Honey’


  • Susan looks incredible for her age, amazing actress and love how she speaks her mind, especially about her political views.


  • Yeah I think the name is ok, better than others i’ve heard.


  • And it’s every doting Grandma’s right to totally spoil her grandchildren, within limits of course. Doesn’t Susan Sarandon look good for her age!


  • Susan is such a lovely happy lady! A very proud granny no doubt!


  • Congratulations to her; I hope I look that good at her age.


  • a great looking nan, that is for sure


  • I like it. I think Honey’s a cute name for a grandchild to call their grandparent.


  • Susan Sarandon is bloody gorgeous. Honey definitely suits her.


  • Susan just looks so good. Congratulations on becoming a granny!


  • She could easily get away with the name honey


  • Honey that is different although i think it could work


  • Each to their own, I think you have to choose a name that your grandchild can sing out at the top of their voices when calling for you in a crowded place & not feel embarrassed. Susan looks absolutely stunning so I think she can get away with HONEY!


  • Never heard of a grandma being called honey but why not :)
