The 40-year-old actor - who split with the former 'Friends' star after 11 years of marriage in October 2010 - was spurred on by estranged wife and Coco, seven, who cheered him on from the front row as he hit the dancefloor with professional partner Kym Johnson.
Performing a Viennese waltz, David and Kym received a standing ovation from the audience and a whole host of compliments from the show's judging panel, made up of Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.
Len said: "I was very impressed. You're a dancer."
Following the routine, David - who received a score of 18 for his moves - said of daughter Coco: "She's just so beautiful. She's the love of my life."
Meanwhile, Cher's son Chaz Bono - who was born a female named Chastity and began gender reassignment surgery around three years ago - received equally positive comments from the judges on the debut night of 'Dancing with the Stars', attaining a score of 17.
Dubbed "Razzmataz Chaz" by Len, Bruno added: "So cuddly and cute. Great, great debut, Chaz. You should be proud."
Kim and Khloe Kardashian were also in the audience cheering on brother Rob and his partner Cheryl Burke as they performed a waltz.
Iraq war veteran J.R. Martinez and singer Chynna Phillips jointly topped the 'Dancing with the Stars' leaderboard with a score of 22 apiece.
