“Hope we’re still around for her 17th!”: Patti Newton shares heartwarming photo of doting grandad Bert

Patti Newton is a proud grandmother of five. And the TV presenter took to Instagram on Friday to share a photo of husband Bert Newton playing the role of doting grandfather to granddaughter Lola at her seventh birthday party.

The photo shows the 80-year-old quadruple Gold Logie winner embracing the little tot who was dressed up as Wonder Woman.

She captioned the heartwarming snap: “Wonder Woman had her 7th Birthday party today. All her Super Heroes had a great time.”

But while the moment was a joyous one, there was a twinge of sadness as the 74-year-old said: “Hope we’re around for her 17th !!!! Lola is just Sunshine.”
