These two just may have just become the nation’s favorite father-daughter duo! Jon Bon Jovi was joined on stage by daughter Stephanie Rose Bongiovi for an adorable father-daughter dance to the tune of a song he wrote for her when she was only 7 years old.
“Everybody’s got a little girl in their life,” Bon Jovi said midway through his performance of “I’ve Got the Girl.” “Their daughter, their girlfriend, their wife, their mamma — it all goes by so fast. And they start out as little bitty babies and their future’s looking bright. And I wrote this song for that little baby, who’s now not such a little baby anymore.”
23-year-old Stephanie then joined her rockstar father on stage, the audience erupting into cheers upon her arrival. They danced for the remainder of the performance, the rockstar pausing occasionally to play the guitar. The father-daughter duo are extremely close, Bon Jovi often backing performances with home videos of a young Stephanie.
Bon Jovi has been happily married to his high school sweetheart, Dorthea Hurley Bongiovi, for over 27 years, the rocker often referring to her as the glue that keeps their family of six together.
Bon Jovi and his band hit the road together in February for their This House Is Not For Sale Tour following the success of their recently released album which debuted at No.1 on Billboard.
