The Overboard actress is incredibly close to her family, and has an extra-special bond with her grandchildren, as she was present for all of their births.

Chatting on The Jonathan Ross Show in 2014 following the arrival of her then youngest grandchild, Rio Hudson, Goldie told the chat show host: "I was there for all the grandchildren's birth."
