David Hasselhoff found it hard bringing his daughters into the public eye.

The former 'Baywatch' actor stars in new reality TV show 'The Hasselhoffs' with student Taylor Ann, 20, and 18-year-old actress Hayley - his kids with ex-wife Pamela Bach - and admits he was wary about seeing them in the spotlight because of the unwanted attention it can bring.

David said: "Bringing them into a business that is sometimes brutally unfair and sometimes breaks your heart was hard.

"Most of the time, it's fantastic, when you're on stage performing, and the girls know this because they've been on stage and been performing, but it's fantastic. It's just the other stuff that goes with it."

However, the 58-year-old star is grateful that their new show will allow his family to present themselves and their opinions in their own way.

He told US TV show 'Fox & Friends': "Instead of running from the cameras and having them say what they want, now we have an opportunity to say what we want."

Taylor Ann added: "There's been so many bad tabloids and we kind of want to prove them wrong and show that we're a loving family. We're all best friends, we have so much fun and hopefully it's entertaining to people. We just want to show the world who really are."
