On The Young and the Restless, Robert Newman portrays baddie Ashland Locke — adopted father to young Harrison. However, in real life, the actor recently became a grandpa again, and he showcased just how much his new family member looks like another relative.

Robert Newman Is A Proud Grandpa

Newman took to Facebook to show off pictures of his latest grandson. In the first post, the actor held the little wide-eyed bundle of joy on his lap.

“Welcome Rocky Joseph. Leo’s little brother. Born April 1st. I’m already in love with this kid. And having him in my lap makes all the negative stuff in my life irrelevant. On the other hand, living (for the time being) 2999 miles away kinda sucks…” the actor penned.

Then, Robert Newman shared another post with his family, friends, and followers on the popular social media network that compared just how much little Rocky looked like his big brother Leo. He held Rocky beside a photo of the big brother displayed on a mobile phone.

“For those of you wondering….Yes….Rocky looks quite a bit like his brother! That’s Leo newborn on the cell phone pic next to Rocky live…” read Newman’s caption.

The resemblance between the two babies is uncanny. They look incredibly similar during their newborn days. You can check out pictures from the proud grandpa below. Soap Hub joins friends, family, and fans in offering our congratulations to Robert Newman on the newest addition to his family. However, selfishly we can’t help hoping that he continues living 2,999 miles away from the little tike so we continue to have his version of Ashland on the soap.
