A smiling Patti Newton hangs out with her daughter Lauren and grandchildren Perla and Alby in Melbourne

Patti Newton enjoyed lunch with her daughter Lauren and two of her grandchildren, Perla and Alby, in Melbourne on Tuesday.

The beloved 77-year-old entertainer was all smiles as she walked alongside her family while shaking hands with Perla.

Three-year-old Perla seemed to be keeping her grandmother on her toes, walking along a ledge and chatting as they left a cafe together.

Meanwhile, Lauren, 42, walked lightly ahead of them, pushing a pram with Alby, one, who seemed restless in his seat.

As well as Perla and Alby, Lauren is also mother to Sam, 13, Eva, 12, Lola, nine, and Monty, five, whom she shares with her husband of 16 years, the retired Olympic swimmer Matt Welsch.

Patti looked glamorous in a pair of tapered black pants, which she paired with tan boots and a black top.

A camel-colored scarf was loosely tied around her neck and she wore a graphic-print parka.

She accessorized with a pendant necklace and earrings, and carried a brown Louis Vuitton monogram handbag.

In an interview with The morning show earlier this month, Patti opened up about her late husband’s complicated health battles.

“I didn’t want him to suffer anymore, so I’m probably relieved he’s in a safe place and resting peacefully,” she said.

Talk to The Sun Herald last month, Patti revealed how she was “coping” in the wake of her husband’s death.

“For someone who just lost the love of their life, I think I’m doing pretty well, all things considered,” she said.

She added: ‘My life will never be the same because Bert was a great personality and he lit up a room, and I always feel like I’m waiting for the door to open and he to come in or I expect him to come down the stairs’.

Bert died on October 30 while in hospice care in Melbourne after a series of serious health problems in recent years.

His health first became a concern in 2012 when he underwent quadruple bypass surgery.

“I didn’t want him to suffer anymore, so I’m probably relieved that he’s in a safe place and resting peacefully,” Patti recently said of her late husband Bert Newton.

In the years following the operation, the four-time Logie winner was hospitalized three times with pneumonia and was also diagnosed with anemia.

He was hospitalized again in March last year and underwent surgery to amputate his leg in May after a toe infection led to complications.

The infection was ‘linked to his diabetes’ and life-threatening, with doctors telling him the operation was a ‘life or death decision’.

“My life will never be the same because Bert was a great personality and he lit up a room,” Patti said of Missing Bert
