She is probably thinking of a recent news story where someone or other was talking about how there ought to be an option for grandparents. It doesn't exist at the moment. Sorry.

Sadly, as far as the law stands you need to have an employment contract in order to be entitled to statutory paternity pay. There is no equivalent for self-employed dads as things stand at the moment, and certainly no option of passing the leave on to grandparents or anyone else for that matter.
