Jason Donovan is a doting dad-of-three, and he couldn’t have been prouder of his eldest daughter Jemma, 18, after the teenager received her A-Level results last week. Jason revealed to his followers on social media just how hard she had worked for them in a poignant Instagram post. The former Neighbours star shared a sweet photo of the pair at their family home, and wrote besides it: "A dream doesn’t become reality through magic it takes sweat determination and hard work. You smashed it today @jemma_donovanwith your A level results. Beyond our expectations. So pleased for you. You deserve all the success in the world. Living the dream ..... love you soooooo much. Go for it !!!! #prouddad xxxxx."

The Australian-born actor shares his three children with his wife Angela Malloch. The couple are also the proud parents of son Zac, 17 – an aspiring photographer – and daughter Molly, seven. Jason – who has battled drug addiction in the past – has previously admitted that he hopes his children learn from his mistakes. "My kids are very aware of what I've done in my life, or rather what I shouldn't have done," he said. "You can only lead by example, I educate my children to hopefully make the right choices. If they don't I will support them along the way. I just hope that what they've seen through me, they can learn to take the good bits and hopefully looks back at the bad bits. No life is perfect."
