(Newser) – Bristol Palin and babydaddy Levi Johnston will welcome a boy roughly any second now, spills Sarah Palin's dad in an interview with Grandparents.com, but "they don't have a name for it yet." Soon-to-be great-grandfather Chuck Heath said the guv will make a great grandmother. "I don't know about how much time she can spend, she's so busy. But she'll get her licks in," he said.

Even with the election behind them, things haven't slowed down for the Palin clan. Heath said his daughter's still in demand, with interview requests pouring in. "There are open invitations from several of them—even open invitations from O'Reilly and from Oprah," he said. Heath said he and wife Sally are focusing on supporting their daughter—and getting ready for their great-grandson, due Saturday. "I hope he's a normal, happy, healthy kid."
