Newton-John had her daughter in 1987 with her ex-husband Matt Lattanzi who she met on the set of the 1980 film Xanadu. The pair were married from 1984-1995.
Newton-John decided to put her career on hold and devote her time to becoming the best mother to her daughter. And the mother-daughter duo has been tight since then.
There is always curiosity about being raised by a celebrity. Still, when Lattanzi was asked how it felt, she never recognized her mother's celebrity status; to her, she was a mom who woke her up each morning and drove her to school.
But soon, Lattanzi started being exposed to the life of her mother. In 1994 Lattanzi played the daughter of her mom's character in the movie "Christmas Romance."
Lattanzi and her mother got to work together for the first time, and Newton-John said it gave her daughter a glimpse into how complex a performer's work is.
However, soon Newton-John started picking up on her daughter's star quality. She said Lattanzi would perform and sing songs word for word as they played on the radio.
Then when Lattanzi was thirteen, the mother-daughter duo acted in another movie together, and Lattanzi had to sing the iconic song by Etta James, At Last.
The song carried a lot of emotions and high notes, but Newton said her daughter's performance was so powerful she realized Lattanzi was also an all-around entertainer.
Lattanzi did indeed follow in her mother's footsteps, and the two started collaborating on music together. In 2016, the then 36-year-old released her album No Pain and worked with her mother and DJ Dave Audé on the electronic dance song "You Have to Believe."
Newton-John and Lattanzi broke the record as the first mother-daughter duo to have a song hit number one on the Billboard charts.
Lattanzi collaborated with her mother again just a year before Newton-John died. Their song "Window on the wall" also topped the Billboard charts. Newton-John was proud of this achievement and commented, "There is always something special about singing with my daughter,"
Lattanzi also said she was honored to work with her mother; even though she knew she was Newton-John's daughter, it still felt special to the singer her mother chose to work with her.
Newton-John and Lattanzi do not only bond over their shared talents, but they have also endured some tough times together.
Despite her mother's diagnosis, Lattanzi also struggled with an eating disorder, and the two opened up about this challenging experience in an interview with People.
Lattanzi confessed she was initially in denial about her condition, but her mother was there to help her accept that she was struggling.
It took each day to make better eating choices, and Lattanzi admitted it was still not easy, but with her mother's support, she could get through this fatal condition.
Newton-John and Lattanzi have been each other rock throughout each other lives, they were inseparable, and they were best friends.
The loss of a parent can never be easy, but Lattanzi is supported by many fans that hope the singer will find a healthy way to deal with the loss of her mother.
