Gareth Gates is one proud dad! The 32-year-old singer has shared a beautiful photo with his daughter Missy, revealing that spending time with her is "the best part of my day". Gareth was pictured walking hand-in-hand with the sweet eight-year-old, who he shares with his ex-wife Suzanne. His fans were quick to comment on how much Missy has grown, with one writing: "How did Missy get so big!" alongside a shocked face emoji. Another Instagram follower posted, "Awww. Missy is so sweet," while a third simply captioned the father-daughter portrait "adorable".

Gareth shares pictures of his little girl from time to time. His second most recent snap was taken on Father's Day, when the former Pop Idol runner-up posted a gorgeous picture of the pair embracing in the sea. "Thank you for the most magical day my little angel. Daddy loves you so much x," he wrote. Gareth also recently enjoyed a day out with his girlfriend Faye Brookes and his mini-me daughter. "Me and my girls in Manchester," he posted.

 

And now for the best part of my day 💙

The singer was previously married to his dancer wife Suzanne from 2008 to 2011. The couple split after they grew apart, with Gareth saying: "Despite our efforts over the past three years to make our marriage work, sadly Suzanne and I have decided to separate. Whilst we have grown apart, we love and cherish our wonderful daughter Missy and together we will prioritise her happy upbringing." The couple had been together for ten years.
