For Bert, family was everything.

As far as showbiz royalty goes, Bert and Patti Newton wereconsidered the King and Queen of the Australian entertainment industry.
Sadly, the TV legend passed away on October 30, aged 83, but not before making a monumental impact on Aussie showbiz - and his own family.
Bert made his small-screen debut in 1957 working alongside Graham Kennedy on In Melbourne Tonight and from that moment, he dominated every era of television.
In 1989, Bert began hosting The Bert Newton Show, before going on to host Good Morning Australia.
Despite pocketing an eye-watering 15 TV WEEK Logie Awards over the years, Bert's wife Patti actually won her very own Logie years before her husband in 1967, for Most Popular Female in Victoria.
Since tying the knot in 1974, the duo had been by each other's side through the good times and bad.
They also were proud parents to Matthew, and Lauren and grandparents to their daughter's six kids - son Sam, daughters Eva, and Lola, son Monty, daughter Perla and son Alby.
Bert had previously revealed he was happiest when spending time with his grandchildren.
"They wouldn't realise it at the moment, but they have made this one of the happiest times of my life," he told the Herald Sun.
"There is that old saying, the wonderful thing about being a grandfather, or grandparent, is that you give the kids back. But in the case of Patti and myself, we don't want to," he added.
Indeed it's the love of Bert's grandchildren that motivated the star to amputate his leg this year in a bid to buy more time with his family before his death.
As we remember his incredible life, let's take a look inside the Newton family photo album.
