Proud grandfather TONY DANZA shared his latest family addition with America this morning (12SEP05) as he kicked off the second season of his syndicated chat show.

The TAXI star's chef son MARC thrilled the actor-turned-TV host when he made the announcement his wife was pregnant during a cookery segment on his father's show at the beginning of the year (05).

Little NICHOLAS DAVID was born at the end of August (05).

Proud Danza showed off pictures of his first grandchild live on his morning show, explaining, "He was 7 pounds 14 ounces, 21 inches long... It was a long night, mom's doing well.

"The most amazing thing about it is watching your son be a father - it's really something."
