Gary is the second child of mum Marjorie and dad Colin Barlow, who sadly passed away in 2009. The singer has an older brother, Ian. Gary himself has three children with his wife Dawn; Daniel, 17, Emily, 15, and eight-year-old Daisy. The couple's fourth child Poppy was sadly delivered stillborn in August 2012.

The Cheshire-born star normally keeps his children out of the spotlight, but in recent months has started to share more family photos. To celebrate Father's Day this year, he posted a black-and-white photo of the Barlow clan, which proved to be a massive hit with his fans, who branded them: "A beautiful family."

Happy birthday Daniel," one wrote. Another observed: "Gary, he looks like you when you started Take That." A third added: "He looks like the young Gary Barlow that was on my walls when I was 17!! He is the image of you @officialgarybarlow!! Happy Birthday Daniel Barlow."
