Jon Voight says he's doubly happy about his ultra-famous new grandchildren.

Voight says he's "so excited" that daughter Angelina Jolie has given birth to twins in southern France.

He says he hasn't spoken to Jolie yet. The two have been estranged for many years.

But speaking during a Television Critics Association press tour, Voight told The Associated Press: "My heart is with them and all my love goes to them."

He spoke Monday night in Los Angeles.

Jolie gave birth to Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Leon in Nice on Saturday with proud papa Brad Pitt at her side.
