If this question is about an earthly genealogy then on Joseph's side, it would be a man named Jacob, according to Matthew. On Mary's side, it would be Eli according to Luke.

Of course, Joseph is only in an adopted fashion as he was not the biological father of Jesus.Luke 1:35.

The miraculous birth of Jesus bypasses our understanding of normal human reproductive and genealogical processes.

If one would like to speak of Grand then think how grand it is that God came to earth and put on a body, lived, died and rose to life, that we might have eternal life with immortal bodies that supersede our processes of genealogical need. Our eternal Father is God the Father and our Lord, Savior, King, and Brother is Jesus.Psalm 103:13-17.
