Rocker Jon Bon Jovi's daughter STEPHANIE has inherited her dad's gift for music - but the big-haired star won't be pushing her into a showbusiness career.

The LIVIN' ON A PRAYER singer is hoping Stephanie, 10, JESSE, seven, and baby JACOB - his three kids with wife of 13 years DOROTHEA - find their own paths in life.

He says, "I don't try to corral the kids into making music, but my daughter especially has a real and natural talent for it.

"She started playing piano but quit. It will be up to her to decide whether it is her desire. I'm not going to push her into it.

"If any of them decide to go that way, great. I just want them to discover who they are and what they have a talent for - that would be alright."
