Singer Jon Bon Jovi and his oldest child recently shared a sweet father-daughter moment, and thousands of people got to witness it.
The rock star, who is currently on his band’s This House Is Not For Sale tour, performed in Las Vegas on Feb. 25. His setlist for the tour includes “I Got the Girl,” a song he wrote years ago for his daughter Stephanie Bongiovi, who is now 23. Bon Jovi sings about his “5-year-old princess” during one of the verses, which made the performance the perfect occasion for Stephanie to join her dad on stage to dance.
The sweet father-daughter moment below starts around the five-minute mark.
In the middle of the song, the singer talked about his “little baby” who is now all grown up.
“Everybody’s got a little girl in their life,” Bon Jovi said to the crowd. “Their daughter, their girlfriend, their wife, their mama, but it all goes by so fast. And they start out as little bitty babies and their future is looking bright. And I wrote this song for that little baby, who’s now not such a little baby anymore.”
Shortly after, Stephanie ran on stage. The duo closed the song with a high five after Bon Jovi gave his daughter a few kisses on the cheek.
The singer has four kids with his wife of almost 30 years, Dorothea Hurley Bongiovi. During an interview with Larry King, the rock star discussed his marriage and said he “got it right the first time.”
“You know, not too many guys are able to say that, but it would be the worst deal I ever made if I blew it and I just don’t have any intention of blowing it,” he said. “I like her, first of all, you know, and then of course I love her and we’ve got four great kids and they’re healthy kids, what’s not to like? It’s a great deal.”
