"His grandparents are young."

Is "Großeltern" always plural or it can be both singular and plural


Eltern is plural for parents Elter is singular for parents So Groß + eltern = grandparents. However using a simple translation app, Großelternteil seems to mean grandparent. Curios to if you can use Großelter as grandparent since its the literal meaning.
