Meat Loaf was father to two daughters, Pearl and Amanda Aday, according to The Sun. The singer’s first daughter was actually adopted. Pearl, born in 1975, belonged to Meat Loaf’s first wife, Leslie Edmonds, from a previous relationship. In 1981, Edmonds welcomed daughter Amanda with Meat Loaf.
Both of Meat Loaf’s daughters appeared to be fond of their old man. Amanda, who is known for her role in the HBO series “Carnivàle,” commemorated a red carpet she attended with her father decades ago on Instagram. “Dad and I at The Faculty premiere in ’98,” she wrote. Pearl, meanwhile, inherited her stepfather’s music gene as she is now a musician herself, who has worked with Meat Loaf on tour and in the studio. The vocalist celebrated Father’s Day in 2021 with a sweet throwback photo of Meat Loaf holding her and music star Mick Ronson’s daughter as children. “Happy Father’s Day you silly nut Rock star dad,” she wrote on Instagram.
Pearl recently revealed her own family was in lockdown due to an outbreak of COVID-19, which Meat Loaf is reported to have suffered from before his death, per TMZ. “We are not sick, but we have too many friends and family testing positive right now, positive but doing ok,” Pearl revealed on Instagram January 7. “Thank their respect for science that they’re all vaxxed, otherwise they’d be way worse.”
