Lovely family & my Lauren & Matt have given you so much joy with 6 grandchildren. You’re a beautiful family.”
While another said: “Happy anniversary pat and Bert and many more to come with good health always beautiful couple xx”.
Never ones to shy away from the spotlight, Patti recently starred in Channel Seven’s racy new show The All New Monty: Guys and Gals where she stripped off for charity. At the time of filming, Patti actually revealed that her reason for taking part in the show was for her husband’s family.
She said that her sister-in-law’s death from breast cancer in the 1970s, just a year after the Patti and Bert tied the knot, became the reason she agreed to do the program adding that the loss was “so devastating for Bert”.
“Alice was the sort of person that if she thought her tragedy was going to help somebody else, then she would be more than pleased,” she said. “So, my performance is dedicated to the beautiful Alice Newton.”
