Lionel Ritchie got candid on the mental state of his daughter Sofia Richie and her husband Elliot before giving birth.

The 74-year-old singer, who recently appeared with his much-younger girlfriend during an event, revealed that her 26-year-old daughter’s anxiety is going through the roof as her due date is coming close.

The hitmaker talked about his life being “so full right now. My baby is now having a baby, what the heck is going on? Elliot and Sofia are about to have a nervous breakdown,” to Extra.

Richie said that he suggested to Sofia to “calm down” and embrace the last days of her pregnancy.

“I say "When the baby comes, then you can have a nervous breakdown!" It's just a great time!”

Although through his adopted daughter Nicole Richie, the American Idol judge is already a grandfather to 16-year-old Harlow and 14-year-old Sparrow, he said he was looking forward to reliving the pleasure of being a grandparent all over again.

“We're all loving it. I'm over the moon and trying to stay calm. I'm just so excited. For them, I know this is going to be the adventure of a lifetime!”
