Mcmahon Mourning His Mother
NIP/TUCK star Julian McMahon is in mourning following the death of his mother on Friday (02Apr10).
The Australian actor's mum, Lady Sonia MCMahon, passed away at a hospital in Sydney at the age of 77 following a battle with cancer.
MCMahon is said to have been at his mother's bedside when she died.
The socialite, whose late husband was former Australian Prime Minister Sir William MCMahon, had reportedly been battling cancer for a year. She will be remembered at a private funeral later this month (Apr10), which will be followed by a public memorial service.
Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd paid tribute in a statement: "She was a wife of a prime minister of this country, they lived in the house where we are currently standing this morning.
"So I believe appropriate respects should be paid to her family, appropriate respect to the contribution that she and her husband made to Australia, and understand at a purely human level, this is a day of great sadness for any family.''
