Their elder brother Edward Jr. passed on at an early age even before the birth of Patti. She is biracial with a Jewish mom whose parents came from Hungary. Her dad, on the other hand, was of German and English origin. Her mom Laura dealt in jewelry and owned a dance school while her dad Edward Rutledge Hawn was a musician and performed at events in Washington. As a child, Goldie started to hone her different natural aptitude. She started taking dance classes at age four and later became a ballet teacher after dropping out of American University where she was studying drama. She also worked as a professional dancer for a while before starting out her acting career.

She was first married to Gus Trikonis, famous dancer and director widely known for his role in West Side Story.

In 1975, she got engaged to Bill Hudson, one of the music group Husdon Brothers known for their song; “So You Are a Star”. After her engagement to Hudson, she deemed it right to finally file for divorce from her ex-husband Trikonis. In 1976, her lawsuit came through ending her relationship with Trikonis legally. The same year she walked down the aisle with Hudson whom she had met on a flight from New York to Los Angeles.
