One of the main reasons Richie Sambora has given for why he left Bon Jovi is that he felt that his daughter Ava, whose mom is Richie's ex, Heather Locklear, needed him, and he wasn't spending enough time with her. But she seems to have turned out just fine, despite the fact that Richie's been on the road for 30 years.
"My daughter actually is very extraordinary," he told reporters at a red carpet event in New York City this week. "It even freaked me out. She ended up with a 4.3 grade average and [she got into] 11 schools, and she's coming to NYU. So I'll be in New York City a lot more!"
Richie will spend Father's Day Sunday with Ava and then on Monday, he'll be back in the studio recording new music.
