Famous noughties pop star reveals teenage daughter is in talks to land record deal as she follows in his footsteps

GARETH Gates’ daughter is following in her dad’s footsteps with dreams of becoming the next pop idol. 

The proud dad, 39, has shared that 15-year-old Missy has got the entertainment bug from him and now hopes to take the stage by storm in her own career.

Now he’s hoping to support her and make sure her dreams come true. 

Speaking to MailOnline, the star said: “She’s got a great voice. She’s a great dancer. The more that she gets to be in and around that music world, the more that she learns. 

“She dances every night after school. You know, she’s kind of going through all of her grades.” 

He added that he plans to sit down with Missy to create songs in the near future. 

The star added he hopes the tracks will help her land a record deal. 

Gareth shot to fame in 2002 after taking part in talent competition, Pop Idol, coming in a respectable second place in a head-to-head with Will Young. 

Since then, he has continued to tour the UK, with him heading out on tour later this year, fronting a tribute show to Franki Valli and The Four Seasons. 

Missy, who Gareth had with his ex-wife Suzanne, has therefore been around the limelight since birth, and now wants to try it for herself. 

It’s clear that Gareth couldn’t be prouder of his little girl, sharing a picture of her last month and declaring on Instagram: “My greatest achievement in life is you @missygates_x

“Daddy loves you more than the world.” 

The news comes shortly after Gareth went public of his new romance with West End star Allana Taylor.

Having first met as castmates in a Jack And The Beanstalk panto last year, the hitmaker explained how it was only until after the production ended that they got together.

In an exclusive interview with The Sun, he said: “It just sort of naturally happened. We got on very, very well – and we were only friends on the show.

“It wasn’t until after the show that we kind of realised that we missed being in each other’s company, and so we had our first date after the show, two months after probably, and yeah, the rest is history.”
