Susan Sarandon refuses to be called grandma.

The legendary actress, whose daughter Eva Amurri Martino is expecting a baby girl with husband Kyle, is reluctant for her very first grandchild to refer to her by a traditional moniker and will encourage the tot to call her ′Honey′ instead.

She explained to People magazine: "I borrowed this name from a very dear friend of mine who′s from the South, and his grandma was ′Honey′.

"That′s what I′m experimenting with and Eva likes it, so we′ll see."

The 67-year-old star also says there won′t be any name clashes with her son-in-law′s parents, who already have six grandchildren.

She added: "I think it′s good because this is Kyle′s parents seventh grandchild, so they′ve established what his parents are called."

The ′Stepmom′ actress has already begun buying baby gifts for Kyle and Eva, 28, who announced her pregnancy last month, as their birthdays are both this month.

Susan said: "So for her birthday and his birthday, they′re getting a little crib and changing table."

The veteran actress had her daughter with Italian filmmaker Franco Amurri and also has two sons - Jack, 24, and 21-year-old Miles - with her former partner, Tim Robbins, from whom she split in 2009 after over 20 years together.
