Dr. Oz's grandson is four and celebrated the new age with a circle of close family members, and his beloved grandfather.
Jovan Jovanovic is four, and grandpa, Dr. Mehmet Oz, is ecstatic about it. The celebrity TV doctor took to Instagram to mark the day with a photo of himself, the celebrant, his older sister, Philomena, and a pumpkin lined background.

In the accompanying caption, Dr. Oz wrote,
"Happy birthday to this handsome boy. It is such a blessing to be able to watch these kiddos grow into the insanely curious and kindhearted people that they are."
Jovan is the son of Dr. Oz's daughter, Daphne Oz, and her husband, John Jovanovic. In a post shared to her Instagram page a day earlier, the mom-of-four and TV personality shared several photos from a family party she threw for her first male child.
The photos also had pumpkins, with the celebrant carving into one, and others showed the little boy with his family, children, and the birthday cake. In the accompanying caption, Daphne wrote,
"John is turning four on Monday… so today, we partied. Such a fun end to such a fun week."
Both posts got a lot of birthday wishes from followers, with a friend of the celebrant's mother, Danielle Walker, commenting,
"How? 4? I swear we were just having lunch, and he was in your belly."
Daphne is also mom to Domenica, and newborn Gigi, who joined the family in August. With four children, the "Master Chef Junior" Judge, has her hands full, but Dr. Oz loves to babysit.
Back in 2017, the proud grandfather gushed to People about his love for babysitting his grandkids and spending time with them.
In a January interview with Closer Weekly, he said,
"The beautiful thing about being a grandfather is that you see the joy that you had as a father in your child. So there's a multiplier effect. Plus, you have the joy of the grandchild, and the best part, [is that] you can give them back."
Dr. Oz expresses his love by making time for his grandchildren, showering them with gifts, and teaching them valuable life lessons.
