What does Wyatt and Meredith's home upgrade in 2022 mean?

It hasn’t gone unnoticed by fans that last April, Wyatt and Meredith sold their charming 1930's era Spanish-style home hidden in the Tujunga Village for an impressive $2.9 million within one month of listing it and wasted no time before moving into a grand $5.4 million home in the Santa Monica Canyon neighborhood.

Interestingly, Wyatt and Meredith were so keen to purchase this larger home that before they had sold their Tujunga Village home, they took part in a bidding war to get their hands on the new family-size property which was originally listed for far less than the couple paid, at just $4.8 million.

Wyatt and Meredith's new home is a Monterey Colonial-style property was built in 1930, like their previous home – but this one is said to include four bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths and just over 3,100 square feet of updated living space.

Plenty of room for any growing family…

Proud grandmother Goldie was keen to get in on the action

Goldie Hawn was also pictured at the milestone celebration, and she could not keep her hands off her daughter-in-law Meredith's blossoming baby bump.

Goldie, 76, has not kept her appetite for more and more grandchildren a secret.

Last year when Goldie's daughter Kate appeared on The Graham Norton Show to promote the Netflix film Glass Onion she revealed a surprising anecdote about Goldie's hands-on involvement in the birth of her daughter: "She likes to be very involved in my life. So much so that she came to the births of my children." Doctors and midwives don't always allow family members to be present, but Goldie went further than that – she got up close and personal!

Kate continued: "She just had to be there and was like right in my vagina with headlight reading glasses on!"

Goldie gushed to Australian Women's Weekly last October that she believes "A good family is the answer to happiness", sweetly adding that "being a grandmother is amazing, I love it. It brings incredible joy. Family is so important".

Buddy Prine is Goldie and Kurt's seventh grandchild and fifth grandson and his parents keep him out of the limelight and off their social media pages entirely. However, Wyatt melted hearts when he appeared on Good Morning America soon after Buddy's birth and gushed about parenthood: "It's everything everyone says it is. The best way I can describe it - and I was talking about it with my wife - is every love song you ever heard is not about your partner, it's about your kids."
