Whoopi Goldberg is spending some quality time with her great-granddaughter.

On Tuesday’s episode of The View, the actress, 68, revealed that she’d spent her morning attending her great-granddaughter’s Special Person’s Day at her school after co-host Sara Haines said the rest of the team missed her at the morning’s hot topics meeting.

Goldberg is mom to daughter Alex, 51, and grandma to granddaughters Amara and Jerzey, as well as grandson Mason. She is great-grandmother to Amara’s daughter, Charli Rose, 9.

“No I wasn’t. I was not at the hot topics meeting. I got a call from my great-granddaughter last evening saying, ‘What are you doing tomorrow?’ I said, ‘I’m working,’ ” Goldberg explained.

“She said, ‘Well, can you come to my school because it’s Special Person’s and Grandparents’ Day.’ And I said, ‘Let me find out!’ She said, ‘Because you know, you’re my special person,’ ” the daytime talk show’s moderator continued.

Goldberg went on to say that she’d spent the morning reading to her great-granddaughter’s class. “Only she occasionally says this to me. But the kids, they like that I came to read to them.”

“The reason it was kind of interesting to them is because as one whose reading has been spotty, they were glad to see that in fact, even if you have dyslexia, you can grow up and figure out how to make it work for you,” the proud great-grandmother said.

When she got back to the studio, Goldberg received a sweet call from her granddaughter.

“Her mother called me as I was getting here and she said, ‘Thank you for doing this because she really really wanted it.’ She really wanted it and I didn’t know it,” she shared on the show.
