Olivia Newton-John passed away on August 8at the age of 73 after a 30 year cancer battle.

The actress’husband Johnbroke the news on her social media accounts saying she passed "peacefully" and as the tributes poured in,Olivia’s daughter Chloe Lattanzi took to Instagram to share an image of the pair.

Chloe, 36, is Olivia’s only child with ex husband Matt Lattanzi. In the photo, Chloe was just a youngster and she planted a kiss on her mum’s mouth.

Chloe looked adorable in a pearl necklace and white dress, with her hair tied up in a scrunchie.

Meanwhile, Olivia was knelt down to be on the same level as daughter as she donned a similar all-white ensemble.

Chloe also shared another throwback snap of her late mother holding her as a baby, as well a string of more recent snaps of them together.

Chloe did not caption the photos, but she was showered with condolences from her 65,000 Instagram followers.

She is an actress like Olivia and three days before her death she posted a snap of the pair and wrote: "I worship this woman. My mother. My best friend.”

Chloe spoke toPEOPLElast year about being unaware of her mum’s celebrity status: “As a kid, I wasn't paying attention to her as a celebrity.

“She's my mom, you know? Like, she takes me to school. I think as I've gotten older, that's when I got to listening to her music.”

The pair worked together too and Chloe played the daughter of her mum's characters in the 1994 movie A Christmas Romance and again in the 2001 film The Wilde Girls.

"It was tough because she was learning this is not a game; it's hard work and the hours are long," Oliviatold PEOPLEof the experience working together.

She added: “She would sing and perform and knew the words to everything on the radio and every record.

"And then she went through a shy period and didn't want to do it as much. When she was about 13, we made a TV movie together and she sang 'At Last,' which is a classic Etta James song. It was so moving, and I went, 'Oh boy, she has it.”

In 2016 Chloe released an album called No Pain and she worked with her mum on the single "You Have to Believe," which became the first Billboard No. 1 single for both on the Dance Club Songs chart.

The track was a reimagining of Newton-John's 1980 single "Magic" from Xanadu, recorded for the cult classic's 35th anniversary as a tribute to their relationship.

"I met Chloe's dad on the set of Xanadu, so, without that film, Chloe wouldn't be here," Olivia toldBillboard. "She was the real 'magic' that came out of that film!"

Olivia also gushed about spending time with her daughter during the pandemic and said: “"I worked my whole life, and the longest period I can remember being home was my pregnancy with Chloe and the first year or two of her life.

"So it's been wonderful reconnecting with my baby. She is my reason to be."
