A LIFE BEGINS

Just three weeks before she lost her fight with cancer, Raiola welcomed granddaughter Anjolie Scotto. "Guess who became a grandma again! This little bundle of joy is what makes it all worth while. This is just what I needed this week," Raiola wrote on Instagram. "She was born last night and is a healthy 6lbs, 7oz with gorgeous black hair! I love her so much. Yes, I'm going to spoil her as well."
