Graduating to the runway! Bret Michaels‘ daughter, Raine Michaels, just made her runway debut at the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit show in Miami. Like her rock star dad, the recent high school graduate sure knew how to command a crowd and flaunted her curves in the July show.
Modeling a few different swimsuits, the teenager was bursting with excitement. “One of my ultimate dreams/goals came true last night… I walked for the @si_swimsuit fashion show,” the 18-year-old captioned an Instagram pic of her runway debut. She added, “Coming into this, I was so nervous and coming out of it, I’m more confident than ever thanks to the entire team @si_swimsuit.”
Interestingly enough, the roles were finally reversed; the singer was in the crowd cheering on his daughter as she took the stage. The Poison frontman was ever the proud papa and gushed about his baby girl on Instagram, writing: “Raine — I want you to know I’m here at the hotel and need you to know you are loved and supported by all your family/friends 100%. I know you want to earn this on your own merit, so I will graciously see you right after. Have fun and good luck Rainebow!”
Fans may be asking, what does a young, pretty, daughter of a famous rock star do after high school? Well, it seems this woman will not be riding on her father’s coattails. Raine is continuing her exploration into modeling, as she’s currently signed with LA Models. However, she’s also getting an education. According to her Instagram, the swimsuit model will also be attending Belmont University in Nashville this fall.
So, who is Raine Michaels’ mom?
It seems Raine got her beautiful blonde tresses from her dad, but what about her killer figure? Canadian actress Kristi Lynn Gibson is Bret’s former flame — and Raine’s mom. The metal band singer had an on-and-off relationship with Kristi for multiple years. The two eventually got engaged in 2016; however, the pair ultimately decided to separate. In that time, Kristi gave birth to two daughters, Raine, and the couple’s youngest daughter, Jorja, 13.
Meanwhile, Bret Michaels honored his youngest daughter with a song.
Bret may have two teenage daughters, but they will always be his little girls. In 2017, the rock star released “Jorja Bleu,” a single about his youngest daughter. Judging from her Instagram page, we wouldn’t be surprised if Bret soon has two kids in the modeling industry.
