* In ''Series/GameOfThrones'', Lord Walder Frey constantly expresses this. Although for him, it's less about the grandkids and more he wants his ''[[ReallyGetsAround many, many children]]'' to finally get married and move out of his house.

** Tywin Lannister...as long as they're male grandkids from his eldest son. Ironically, he already has two of these but they're less than ideal, being officially Baratheons rather than Lannisters, and rather more importantly ''bastards born of incest between his son and daughter''.

* On ''Film/TheTrumanShow'', Truman's "mother" is pushing Truman to have children on this excuse; what she ''really'' wants is to fulfill the wishes of Christof, who is still holding out for the first on-air conception.

* In ''Literature/WarriorCats'', Bramblestar tells Lionblaze and Cinderheart this - though, in a somewhat darker twist, the reason he wants them to hurry up and have some is because the Clan doesn't have any. On a more lighthearted note, when they actually do, he realizes that this makes him feel old.

Added DiffLines:

* Downplayed for the most point, in ''Manga/TokyoGhoul''. Mirumo's diary mentions how eager he is to see Shuu have children of his own, but the father and son haven't been shown discussing the issue of marriage or children. Instead, he seems content to support his son's pursuits and wants him to find an epic romance ''before'' grandkids come into the picture. In comparison, when Kuroiwa is visited and the topic of his son's upcoming marriage is discussed, it becomes clear that Takeomi is expected to start having children immediately.

* ''Fanfic/BlackSky'': Daniela Vongola is quite disgruntled by her grandsons for failing to marry when they already are forty-and-more years old and giving her babies to spoil. She outright dotes on her granddauther Erica - for being a mother of two - and her grandson Xanxus - because she raised him and he's still young enough for a good wedding. [[spoiler: When she learns Xanxus discreetly married and fathered three children, she's ecstatic and declares he's her favourite.]]

* In ''Webcomic/KevinAndKell'', Desdemona Fuscus is seen asking Kell which of them should be the first to bring the topic of grandchildren up to the recently married Fenton and Lindesfarne. Desdemona isn't as bad as Lindesfarne and Fenton's ''house'' (a sentient tree named Tree), who keeps pestering them. Lindesfarne is ''very'' ambivalent about the idea though [[spoiler: especially since, as a former human, her children are likely to become human themselves. On the one hand, society already doesn't handle her cousin, TokenHuman Francis Fennec, as well as they could. On the other hand, her having a human daughter might be the only way Francis can have a mate he can breed with. (And before anyone asks, they're cousins by adoption, so the NotBloodSiblings trope comes into play if that happens.)]] As of January 2017, she's pregnant.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Route 148}} '' this trope is used to hint at one of the protagonists' homosexuality [[spoiler: when Frank, on the same page he is introduced, jabs at Linton about probably never pruducing any great-grandkids]].

** Chirag is gay. His parents know he's gay, [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow but they don't know that he knows that]]. His brother and sister are also gay, and once they came out of the closet their parents immediately started bugging them about settling down and having kids. To avoid this, he still pretends to be in the closet when they visit him, begging his female friends to play TheBeard.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Fans}}'', when Rikk and his wife Aly formed a [[{{Polyamory}} polyamorous]] union with Rumy, Rikk's conservative mother did not take it well and nearly stopped speaking to her son. Later, at dinner with Rikk's parents, Rumy accidentally let it slip that she was preparing to act as a surrogate mother for Rikk and Aly (Aly wanted a baby but due to a disease that nearly killed her before she did not have viable ovaries, and Rumy was too active as a member of AEGIS to carry a baby to term, so Rumy conceived the child with Rikk, and then doctors used alien-tech to transplant the fetus into Aly's still-functioning womb). Rikk's mom then approached Rumy, hugged her fiercely and declared, "You're my new favorite daughter-in-law!" Her desire to be an active part of her grandchild's life won out over any objections to her son's unconventional lifestyle.
