Daisy was the result of a one-night stand and the fact that Gavin was her father didn’t come to light until a paternity test revealed the truth in 2004.
In her memoir All That Glitters, Pearl wrote that Gavin, who had been Daisy’s godfather, coldly responded to the request for a paternity test.
Pearl, who had once used drugs, wrote: “I received a letter from him implying that I was trying to ruin his life and ostensibly accusing me of ruining mine.”

She added that after the paternity test, “Daisy persevered with Gavin, determined to forge some sort of relationship, and things got better.” From time to time, he invited her to come by his house.
A few years later, in 2010, Daisy later told the Evening Standard: ‘I now have a really good relationship with my dad. It has been blooming for a year, but it really happened at Christmas. We need to spend time together. He has two beautiful children that I really adore and his wife is beautiful.
At the time, Gavin was married to fellow No Doubt bandmate Gwen Stefani – a relationship that ended in divorce in 2016.
Gwen is now married to country music idol Blake Shelton, who was named People magazine’s Sexiest Man a few years ago.

Early last year, Us Weekly reported that Gwen had finally managed to secure a Catholic annulment from Gavin.
She could only remarry in the Catholic faith by having the first marriage annulled, thus declaring that it was never valid anyway.
However, the sons she and Gavin have together are still considered legitimate under Canon 1137 of the Code of Canon Law.
A few years ago, Gavin told People, “I keep getting screwed over in all these relationships. I’m not very good at them I guess.
“I got divorced, had a longtime girlfriend – it’s gone for nothing and I don’t have a girlfriend now, even though everyone seems to think I have one. You get burned by this stuff,” the London-born music star said.
The sizzling sensation shared that he’s “really focused on being a single dad” and joked, “I don’t know, it may be too hard to combine being a devastating single dad with being a devastating single dad. attention required for a beautiful girl. So I don’t know. I’m trying to find my feet on that one. It’s not resolved.
