Jon Bon Jovi pulled at the heartstrings of a Las Vegas audience last week when the veteran rocker invited his daughter Stephanie on stage to dance with him during the band’s performance of “I Got the Girl.”
“Everybody’s got a little girl in their life,” Bon Jovi said, party way through the song. “Their daughter, their girlfriend, their wife, their mamma… but 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.”
Stephanie, 23, then came out on stage towards the end of the song, dancing with her dad and giving him a hug before leaving the stage.
Stephanie first joined her dad on stage to dance to the song when she was just 7 years old.
“I Got the Girl” appeared on Bon Jovi’s 2000 album, Crush.
Bon Jovi is currently on the road for their This House Is Not For Sale tour, which continues through mid-April.
