Gavin Rossdale’s relationship with his eldest daughter is “blossoming”.

The rocker was revealed to be the father of model Daisy Lowe in 2004 following a brief fling with her mother Pearl Lowe, and though they had minimal contact for years, the 21-year-old British beauty admits she has grown increasingly close to her dad – who also has sons Kingston, four, and 21-month-old Zuma with wife Gwen Stefani – in recent months.

Daisy said: “I now have a really good relationship with my father.

“It’s been blossoming for the past year, but it really happened over Christmas when he was here for a month. We got to spend time together. He’s got two beautiful kids who I really adore and his wife is gorgeous.

“We’re working on being good mates. I think he’s an intelligent, sweet guy.”

Daisy dated music producer Mark Ronson, 34, for several months in 2008 and admits she was attracted to him because she wanted to be “spoilt”.

She explained to Britain’s Esquire magazine: “I was dating Mark because I decided I wanted to be spoilt a little bit. IT was really interesting dating an older person and he taught me a lot."
