The 75 year old underwent emergency heart surgery for an angioplasty procedure in a hospital near her home in Atlanta, Georgia after suffering a reported heart attack while Roberts was filming new movie Eat, Pray, Love in India.
The actress has since returned to her family home in Malibu and she is determined to take better care of her mum – by moving her into a property close to her own.
Roberts is also keen for her three young kids with husband Danny Moder to bond with their grandmother, reports the National Enquirer.
A source tells the tabloid, “She wants her mother nearby to see her three kids – Hazel, Phinnaeus and Henry – as much as possible.
“Julia was so freaked out by her mum’s close call in late September that she vowed to move her closer to her own family. Betty plans to move to Pacific Palisades in the next few months.”
