Olivia Newton-John made “a pact with God” to save her daughter Chloe Lattanzi’s life.
The pop superstar, who died Monday at the age of 73, revealed the vow in a February 2021 interview with the podcast A Life of Greatness, in which he was candid about her religious beliefs.
“I remember being pregnant with Chloe and about to lose her,” Newton-John recalled of her 1985 pregnancy with their only child.
“I went to bed and asked God to save her, and if He did, I would say the Lord’s Prayer every night for the rest of my life, and I did,” she explained. “I think prayer is very powerful.”
Newton-John welcomed Chloe in January 1986 with then-husband Matt Lattanzi. The mother-daughter duo were known to share a close bond.
The A Life of Greatness podcast was one of Newton-John’s final interviews as the superstar was slowly dying of stage four cancer.
In the interview, the “Grease” legend also spoke about her firm belief that there is some kind of life after death.
“Have you thought about your death?” Podcast host Sarah Grynberg openly asked the four-time Grammy winner.
“We all know we’re going to die. . . I think we spend our lives denying it,” Newton-John replied. “It’s very personal. I find it difficult to put into words. I feel like we’re all part of one thing. I have had experiences with ghosts or spirit life and I have sensed the spirit world and heard things that I believe are happening there.”
She further explained: “[I believe] It’s almost like we’re parts of the same computer, going back to the main battery. I don’t have a precise definition of what it is.”
“I think there is a great deal of knowledge out there [and] we become a part of it. I hope that the energies of the people you love will be there. . . I think all the love will be there. . . I’m looking forward to it, not now but when it happens,” she said.
Newton-John died at her home in Southern California on Monday morning surrounded by loved ones – including Chloe, now 36.
The devastated daughter shared a post on Instagram paying tribute to the star last Friday, three days before her mother’s death.
“I adore this woman. My mother. My best friend,” Lattanzi captioned the snap, which showed the pair hiking across a field together. It is unclear on what date the picture was taken.
Newton-John battled cancer on and off for three decades.
In 1992, at the age of 43, she was first diagnosed with breast cancer.
The star discovered the disease had returned in 2013, before revealing in 2017 that she had metastases to her lower back. The cancer then spread to her bones, with doctors diagnosing it as stage 4 and stating there was little chance of survival.
Despite enduring chronic pain, the feisty Aussie has become an outspoken advocate for cancer awareness and medical marijuana.
News of Newton-John’s death rocked the showbiz world on Monday, sparking a wave of grief among her celebrity friends.
Grease co-star John Travolta paid tribute to his longtime pal, writing on Instagram, “You’ve made our lives so much better. Her impact was incredible.”
