Kathy Sudeikis talks about raising her super-star son, Jason Sudeiks, and his first child

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Kathy Sudeikis has a TV and movie star son, Jason Sudeikis, and two successful daughters, Kristin Ann and Lindsay Ann.  On 41 Action News Thursday,  Kathy talked about raising her children and becoming a first-time grandmother.

Kathy walked in the studio wearing a bright yellow blouse which matched her bright smile.  She just returned from a weekend in New York City where she visited her son Jason, his wife Olivia Wilde and her first grandchild, Otis.

"It was wonderful and I can't tell you how special it was to hold him (Otis) for the first time," Kathy said.

Kathy told me that she's going to be called  Nana to Otis; but her husband wants to be called by his first name, Dan.

"We're so excited and so in love with him (Otis). He's such a little peanut and so beautiful," she explained. 

After raising three children who are successful adults, I asked Kathy for her secret.

"Well, I just let my kids be themselves and loved them and guided them," she said.

Family is very important to Kathy.  She plans to make many more trips to New York to see her children and her new grandchild.

Thanks for the interview Kathy and for sharing such a great picture of you with your first grandchild.
