Bret Michaels Supportive of his Daughters
Michaels isn’t shy of expressing his love for his children, and his Instagram is filled with posts about his daughters.
The singer was incredibly supportive of his two girls, and Raine spoke about it when talking to Sports Illustrated.
She shared that Michaels could not have been more supportive about her decision to be a swimsuit model.
I could not have gotten a more supportive or amazing dad when it comes to modeling bikinis. He wants me to succeed and he doesn’t view it as sexy pictures but rather as me making my dreams come true which makes him so proud of me.
Raine’s mother, Kristi Lynn Gibson, was similarly on board with the idea as Gibson used to be a model herself.
On top of supporting her, Raine shared that her mother acted as her momager/stylist/personal assistant throughout the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model search.
Similarly, Michaels has also been supportive of his daughter Jorja. He previously described Jorja as an “amazing songwriter” when she was still 13 years old.
The singer dedicated an Instagram post to Jorja to show his appreciation.
“So incredibly proud of @jorjamichaels - from her unbroken spirit, to her songwriting, to her continuous love & charitable work for diabetes & animals,” he wrote while posting a picture of his daughter.

When talking to Billboard, Michaels shared that Jorja had a lot in common with him, describing her as having a “road-dog personality” like him. As for Raine, the singer noted her to be more of an old soul.
