Rock legend Paul Stanley – who fans normally see in full makeup with his band, KISS – shared a rare selfie of himself enjoying some quality time with his 11-year-old daughter, Emily.
“Family vacation! My beautiful Emily brightens the day even more!” the “Detroit Rock City” singer, 71, shared via Twitter on Tuesday.
In the sweet snap, Stanley stood behind his daughter as they both gave slight smiles while soaking in the sun’s rays.
Fans replied with messages of support, with many weighing in on Stanley’s au naturel look – a drastic switch from his signature Starchild performance makeup consisting of black, white and red face paint.
“What a beautiful girl! Looks like you are enjoying a well deserved vacation together! I am so happy for you Paul!” one fan tweeted, with another adding, “Beautiful picture! She looks just like her dad!”
A third fan gushed, “What a wonderful picture of a dad & his beautiful daughter. I just showed my husband & he said about Paul, ‘Wow, he looks really, really good.’”
“The both of you look beautiful, very precious. That’s what families about. Smiles, happiness, love and respect. Love you always!” tweeted another supporter.

Emily is the youngest of Stanley’s four kids. The “Face the Music: A Life Exposed” author also shares daughter Sarah, 14, and son Colin, 16, with wife Erin Sutton, whom he tied the knot with in 2005.
The guitarist is also dad to son Evan, 28, with ex-wife Pamela Bowen, whom he was married to from 1992 until 2001.
While Stanley usually keeps details about his family life mum, he previously got candid about how fatherhood changed his outlook on life.
“I went through quite a bit of life wondering what life was about and it just seemed like perhaps at the end of the day it didn’t mean much because we go through our lives and then we’re gone,” Stanley, who’s currently on tour with Gene Simmons, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer, told Forbes in 2018.
“With each of my children, all of which I either helped to deliver or pulled out or did all kinds of participations, it became clear to me that we only die physically because we are the product of the generations before us and we live on in the generations after us. The children we create ultimately are the voices of us in the future.”
Stanley concluded, “We’re given these blank slates and we get to write whatever we want on them. So, whatever time we put in and the effort we put in is what we get out.”
