Tamara Beckwith has adopted two koalas following the Australian bushfires.

The 49-year-old socialite - who has 33-year-old daughter Anouska with William Gerhauser, ten-year-old Vivi and five-year-old Vero with husband Giorgio Veroni - delighted her youngsters when she became the proud owner of two koala bears from the Koala Preservation Society Australia.

Sharing a picture of the adoption certificates on Instagram on Tuesday (04.02.20), Tamara wrote: "As simple as that we found two koala to love from afar ... The children have begged me to help them do this and after the amazing TV program last night I felt even more guilty that I had put it off ... Not sure where I would house them if they ever decided to visit!!"

Vivi adopted a furry friend named Myoora Jarrah and Vero is know the owner of Oxley Twinkles, both from New South Wales.
