Patti Newton shares a never-before-seen photo of her late husband Bert.

Bert Newton, a legendary entertainer who died in October at the age of 83, was a legendary figure in the entertainment industry.

Patti, 76, his bereaved widow, posted a never-before-seen photo of her late husband on Instagram on Tuesday.

Bert smiled happily for the camera as he lay in his hospital bed in the uncaptioned, undated photo.

Many celebrities shared their thoughts on the photo.

Blue Wiggle Anthony Field responded with a series of heart emojis, and PR guru Roxy Jacenko added, “sending love.”

“Sending love to you and all the family, sweetheart,” Home and Away’s Georgie Parker wrote.

Bert’s daughter, Lauren Newton, revealed how the family was coping after her death on October 30 due to health complications.

Lauren, 42, said she was focusing on the future for the sake of her six children in a joint interview with her mother Patti for Women’s Day on Monday.

“We are on the verge of collapse, but we are doing our best.

“It’s a good distraction because you have to keep going with little kids,” she said.

Lauren and her husband Matt Welsh have six children: Sam, 13, Eva, 12, Lola, nine, Monty, five, Perla, three, and Alby, seventeen months.

Bert and Patti had been married for nearly 47 years, and Patti told Woman’s Day they had a “wonderful relationship”, describing the veteran entertainer as “humble”.

“Everyone has ups and downs.

“I despise people who claim they’ve never had a crossword – you can’t live your life like you’re perfect,” she said.

“However, with Bert, I believe we were on the same page and had a lot of respect for each other.”

And, unlike many other husbands in Hollywood, he included me in everything.

Patti will take the stage again in May to pay tribute to her late husband.

Patti will perform in the John Foreman Aussie Pops Orchestra Mother’s Day Concert at the Arts Center Melbourne on Sunday May 8, according to the Herald Sun, and it is understood a tribute will be included.

After his death on October 30, Patti laid her husband to rest in November.

Bert’s leg was amputated last year due to complications from a toe infection.

When he underwent quadruple bypass surgery in 2012, his health became a concern.

The four-time Logie winner was hospitalized three times with pneumonia and was also diagnosed with anemia in the years following the operation.

Bert was again admitted to hospital in March last year and underwent leg surgery in May.
