Olivia Newton-John made a pact with God to save daughter’s life

Olivia Newton-John made a pact with God when she was pregnant with her daughter Chloe Lattanzi in 1985.

The “Grease” star, who died Monday at age 73, said on a February 2021 episode of the “A Life of Greatness” podcast that she lost her child “close by” before she was born.

“I went to bed and asked God to save her, and if he did, I would pray the Lord’s Prayer every night for the rest of my life,” she said of the experience. “And so have I.”

After Newton-John called the prayer “very powerful,” she was asked if she ever “considered” [her own] dead” over the years.

“I’ve had quite a few times when it was possible sooner than I wanted it to,” replied the Grammy winner, referring to her 30-year battle with breast cancer.

“We all know we’re going to die,” she continued. “I think we spend our whole lives denying it. It’s very personal.”

Newton-John – who shared Chloe, now 36, with ex-husband Matt Lattanzi – shared her thoughts on life after death.

“It’s almost like we’re part of the same computer and we’re going back to the main battery. I don’t have a clear definition of what it is,” she explained at the time. “I think there’s a great knowledge out there that we’re going to be a part of it.”

The actress’s husband, John Easterling, announced via Facebook on Monday that his partner had died.

“Dame Olivia Newton-John, 73, passed away peacefully this morning at her Southern California ranch, surrounded by family and friends,” the 70-year-old businessman wrote. “We ask everyone to respect the privacy of the family at this very difficult time.”

Newton-John was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992 and returned in 2013 and again in 2017, which Easterling pointed out in his statement.

“A symbol of triumph and hope for over 30 years, Olivia shares her journey with breast cancer,” he wrote. “In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations in memory of the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund.”

Many celebrities then took to social media to pay tribute to the late “Xanadu” star, including her “Grease” co-star John Travolta.

“We’ll see you on the road and we’ll all be together again,” the actor, 68, wrote on his Instagram tribute. ‘Your from the first moment I saw you and forever!
Your Danny, your John!”
