In addition to Travolta, Newton-John’s husband John Easterling and daughter Chloe Lattanzi, along with other close friends, went out to dinner to celebrate the late matriarch.
Chloe also shared an old video of her mother feeding a tiger a carton of milk, writing in part, “Happy birthday mama bear. This is who you are. A nature girl with the biggest heart. The most down to earth beautiful being I have ever known. I hold you in my heart forever.”

John recounted fond memories he shared with his late wife, writing on his Instagram, “I remember the first birthday when were together and I took Olivia on a week-long adventure in the Out Islands of the Bahamas surrounded by beautiful, peaceful spectacular turquoise water…It was private, it was wonderful, and we would take the boat to uninhabited islands and beach it and just explore – just the two of us.”
He captioned his post in part, “Happy Birthday Honey – I Love You!”
