Daisy Lowe, 32, is an English model daughter of famous fashion designer Pearl Lowe and rock singer Gavin Rossdale, 54. During her childhood, Lowe believed that her father was a fertility specialist Bronner Handwerger.

What Lowe didn't know is that her mother, Pearl, had told Rossedale about her possible paternity. The singer did not seem to like the idea, as she warned him that if she ever consented to test the girl she would not speak to him again.
Then it would take 6 years for both father and daughter to establish a relationship and connect. Rossdale kept his word and never spoke to his ex-Pearl again, but gradually developed a relationship with his daughter.

During the turbulent teenage years, Lowe made the discovery of her biological father and, in her own words, felt "delighted" with it. She commented that knowing that Rossdale was her father helped her through those years.
Although father and daughter were not related at that time. Over time, they both learned to be part of each other's lives, and the model has had the opportunity to share and watch her siblings grow up, Rossdale's children with Stefani.
FINDING HER WAY

WORLD UPSIDE DOWN
When her grandfather Edgar was diagnosed with lung cancer, Daisy's world fell apart. for him, her grandfather is like her superhero, and facing the possibility of his death was a great blow to her.
Lowe withdrew from her work and devoted himself body and soul to spending every minute with Edgar, taking him to doctor visits and chemotherapy treatment. Fortunately, this time Edgar recovered and Daisy came back to her life.
CHANGES IN HER BODY
However, the time away from the catwalk world and her concern for the recovery of her beloved grandfather took their toll on her. She didn't pay much attention to what she was eating and her body gained about 21 pounds.
The joy that her grandfather had recovered from her gave him the strength to dedicate himself to working to recover her body. Since she started modeling at age 15, Ella Lowe was always listed as curvy, and she dedicated herself to recovering her figure for work.
MORE COMPLICATED PROBLEMS
