"It was so wonderful, I'm so proud of her," Douglas said of the graduation before discussing the uncomfortable experience.
"I gotta tell you Kelly, it's a little rough when you're going out the doors and the other parents are saying, 'Oh congratulations…you must be so proud of your granddaughter,'" he said before host Kelly Clarkson burst into laughter.
"I said, 'Well, I don't know man. Yeah OK,'" he recalled telling the other parents. "I'm not gonna take it personal, they're just trying to be nice."
Carys was joined by both her parents, Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, as well as her older brother Dylan for the ceremony last month.https://www.instagram.com/p/CPJD939rIgu/

Now that the couple's two children will both be out of the house and attending college, Douglas also discussed what he and his wife think about becoming empty-nesters.https://www.instagram.com/p/CN401bbMY6s/
"There is that moment when they're gone — they're out of the house and they're gone — and you look at each other and in the back of your mind you're thinking, 'What are we gonna talk about?'" he joked. "As a marriage, so much of your time revolves around talking about your kids, what they're doing, how they're doing, this and that, so it's easy conversation."
