How many children?

What are their names?

My son is called Shlomo--that's Solomon--and he has the name of my husband's father who was a great man. My daughter is named--my elder daughter is named after my mother Sidone. And my youngest daughter, is a gem, is called Goldie, after his mother.

Any grandchildren?

I have thirteen grandchildren. They're all Israelis. Two were born in Brazil because I married him in Brazil. I--he was my friend in England, he proposed in England and I said, "I'm not ready for marriage to anybody."

Now, the "him" you're referring to is Sidney, is his name. And you said great grandchildren?

Yup. We have eight great gr...great grandchildren. They're Israelis and they're beautiful and they are a comfort and also very, very much involved with us. They don't see us as an old couple, you know, we get to dance with little ones like that.
