NEW YORK (AP) - New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says he's looking forward to having a grandson any day now, but he's not expecting a namesake.

Bloomberg touched on the topic Friday on his WOR-AM radio show. His younger daughter, Georgina, and her boyfriend and fellow equestrian, Ramiro Quintana, are expecting the mayor's first grandchild soon.

Bloomberg says he thinks the couple won't name the boy Michael.

The 71-year-old Bloomberg has made clear he's excited about becoming a grandfather. In a speech earlier this month, he choked up while discussing his hopes for the future of the city that will be the boy's home.

And on a more day-to-day level, he said he was willing to change a diaper if need be.

Bloomberg leaves office Dec. 31 after 12 years.
