The Poison lead singer’s 18-year-old daughter, Raine, recently made her runway debut during Miami Swim Week.

The blonde beauty was chosen out of 25,000 models to walk in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Show this past weekend, and her rockstar dad couldn’t be more proud.

In an Instagram post, the “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” singer proudly shared his daughter’s photo, praising her for her achievements.

“Raine – I want you to know I’m here at the hotel & need you to know you are loved and supported by all your family/friends 100%,” the singer wrote. “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!”

The recent high school graduate may have grown up with a famous parent, but says she’s determined to put in the work to succeed.

“I realize it takes hard work, gratitude and some luck,” Raine said in a statement. “I truly admire strong women like my mom and grandmas as well as Oprah Winfrey, Kate Upton, Cindy Crawford and Tyra Banks who are amazing role models. All of these women are smart, hard working and dedicated.”

Although Raine is heading to college in the fall, she currently serves as a part-time veterinarian assistant, it looks as though the teen may have more modelling opportunities in her future.

“One of my ultimate dreams/goals came true … I walked for the @si_swimsuit fashion show,” Raine shared to Instagram. “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.”

Raine is the eldest of Michael’s two children with former girlfriend, Kristi Gibson. The pair also have a 13-year-old daughter, Jorja Bleu.
