On June 6, her beloved only child, Finty, 24, went into labour and produced a son, Sam. Mother and daughter have always been very close: "There is nothing that Finty couldn't tell me," Dench has said in the past. Yet neither she nor her husband realised that their daughter was about to become a single parent until a few days before the birth.
