Where is Bobby Moore’s daughter now?
Tina and Bobby Moore welcomed their daughter Roberta in1965.
The 55-year-old is now an art consultant and gallerist. She currently lives in Chelsea in London with her husband Matt, 51, and daughter Ava, 21.
Roberta is still close with her mother Tina, who is now 75.
Speaking about her dad’s death, she previously told The Mirror in 2017: “Mum and I still talk about dad a lot.
“I still think when I’m going along in life or whenever I get nervous about something, ‘What would dad do? How must he have felt walking on to that pitch in 1966?’."
How did Tina and Bobby Moore’s son die?
Tina gave birth to her and Bobby's second child Dean in 1968, after the couple suffered a miscarriage two years before.
Tragically, Dean died at the age of just 43 in 2011.
Opening up about her loss, older sister Roberta told The Mirror: “It floored us all.
“Dean had struggled with alcohol but he hadn’t had a drink for months.
“I did a reading his daughter Poppy had written at his funeral. It took everything inside me to read that. I was heartbroken.
“We were all heartbroken. It was so difficult but I thought, ‘I have to be strong. I have to do this for dad’.”
Dean - who was diabetic - was found in the living room of his Notting Hill support centre.
An inquest heard it was unlikely he even knew he had diabetes.
