Goldie is incredibly close to her grandchildren and was present at all of their births. Oliver's only daughter was even named Rio Laura in tribute to the First Wives Club star's mother, Laura.

The actress loves nothing more than spending time with her grandchildren, and previously told Australian Women's Weekly: "A good family is the answer to happiness. I look at our kids and grandchildren and there's nothing in the world that could make me as proud as I am of all of them."
