Comedian Billy Crystal joined the ranks of celebrities peddling children’s books Tuesday with the debut of “I Already Know I Love You,” a tome he penned as a “love poem” to his first grandchild.
“It’s profoundly moving when your baby has a baby,” Crystal told reporters after reading his new book to 5-year-olds at the Children’s Museum in Manhattan.
The 57-year-old actor and comedian’s daughter, Jenny, had a daughter, Ella.
Crystal joins an array of celebrity children’s book authors that includes Julie Andrews, Madonna and the late-night talk show host and comedian Jay Leno.
The book, published by HarperCollins, outlines things Crystal hopes to do with his grandchild, such as eating spaghetti and going to a baseball game.
Crystal said the book was aimed at parents and children as well as grandparents.
