Bert and Patti Newton looked very much the proud grandparents at the weekend as they celebrated the christening of their youngest grandchild.
The couple joined daughter Lauren, son-in-law Matt and all of their beloved grandkids for the special occasion for little Perla, who was born earlier this year.
The joyous moment between grandparents and grandchild was captured in a beautiful snap on the day, with the couple looking happy and healthy alongside the adorable four-month-old.
In the heartwarming image, shared on social media, Bert is seen with a huge smile on his face as he sports a vibrant purple suit and patterned shirt. He has his arm around his beloved wife Patti, who looked stunning in a leopard print shirt and black pants, while cradling Perla lovingly in her arms.
The doting grandma simply captioned the post on Instagram: “A perfect day celebrating our precious Perla’s Christening.”
Meanwhile, the couple’s daughter Lauren also took to social media to share a special photo from the day of her husband and kids all together.
The beautiful mum and dad are pictured with Sam, 11, nine-year-old Eva, Lola, seven, Monty, three, and the newest addition to the family, Perla.
“Such a beautiful day celebrating Perla’s christening,” Lauren wrote on Instagram.
The day prior she also shared a snap from the day of herself and Matt, Perla and Father Dowling. The loving mother explained the significance of her youngest child’s frock and how important it is to the family.
