He rightly gained all the love and attention from his fans globally after performing over 30 tours in his lifetime. While he was known for his powerful vocals, his role as a father was far more commendable.
Pearl, 47, was born in 1975. She is the daughter of Leslie Edmonds who was Meat Loaf's first wife.
