Actor Jack Wagner is still pinching himself after reuniting with his long-lost daughter Kerry - because he had tried and failed to locate her after she was put up for adoption as a newborn.
The former Melrose Place regular, 52, met 23-year-old Kerry for the first time at a 4 November (11) concert in Boca Raton, Florida, where Wagner was performing with veteran singer Rick Springfield.
Recalling the night's events in People magazine, Wagner reveals a security guard had knocked on his dressing room door to inform him that a woman clutching an old photograph of the U.S. TV star and her birth mum had been asking desperately to see him.
He recounts, "In rushes this girl, hysterically crying. She said, 'You don't know who I am, do you?' We held each other, and I knew immediately that she was my daughter."
The actor reveals he had had "a one-night stand" with the child's mother in the late 1980s, "and nine months later I got a call from her saying, 'I just had a baby girl, you're the father and she's been put up for adoption.'"
The stunned star sought legal advice and tried desperately to find the baby - but to no avail.
He says, "I was blindsided. I got hold of an attorney to see what I could do. I didn't even know if it was true. I was powerless."
But Wagner is overjoyed to have reconnected with Kerry, a dance teacher who was raised in New York, branding it "a miracle".
He adds, "She had no idea who I was. She Googled me and checked out some episodes of Melrose Place... The courage this girl has to come to my dressing room with a photo - it's amazing. This really is all about love."
