"I have to learn to knit. I do some crafty things, but I have not yet learned to knit. But I'll do whatever she needs me to do,” she told People previously.

"Mostly I see myself as a memory-maker for my kids and my grandkids. It's just for me to take them places and do things with them – [Eva] can hold down the fort, and I'll do all the fun stuff."

Susan also confirmed she will not be referred to as ‘grandma’.
