Bringing along a pal, Ava Elizabeth Sambora joined dad Richie Sambora at the Grammy Awards, held Sunday night in Los Angeles.

Ava, 12, watched her father perform a medley of “We Weren’t Born to Follow,” “Who Says You Can’t Go Home,” and “Livin’ on a Prayer,” with his band Bon Jovi, accompanied by Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland.

Ava is the only child for Richie, 50, and ex-wife Heather Locklear.

Oh my – a little carbon copy of her mum! Very beautiful.

Noelle on

She is definitely her moms daughter! She’s beautiful!

MissMissy on

Wow, what a truly gorgeous little girl!

Brooke on

Holy Moly – that little girl is beautiful. She is going to be one of those women that people do a double take of when she walks down the street.

Rebeca on

OMG, she looks like a mini Heather! She is absolutely beautiful!

Sidney on

Gorgeous girl, but her dress was way too short for a 12-year-old. Maybe I’m old fashioned, but that thing seemingly ended right under butt.

Luna on

One word…wow.

Gigi on

that child got all the right genes!

daniela on

Wow! Ava is gorgeous! She’s got her mom’s eyes! She’s a mini Heather for sure!

acmommy on

I think she looks exactly like Richie but with Heather’s eyes – which is the first thing you look at.

Nella on

What a gorgeous girl! She looks so much like her mother.

Beautiful! I can only imagine the stunner she will be in the next few years. Bummer they didn’t have more children!

Shirese on

I think she is a spitting image of Heather.

Sharon on

OMG she looks like her mum, especially the eyes. She is going to be a little stunner – her dads not bad either.

kirstie on

you all say she looks like Heather but to me she looks like Miley Cyrus

lisa on

wow…just wow!

Kresta on

I recall when Heather was in Dynasty many years ago and Ava resembles a young Heather.

Tammie on

Wat a gorgeous girl Ava is, and I think its great to see pictures of her.
What a wonderfull idea to take her to the grammy’s.
It looks like she adores her father, it looks like they have a very special bond…

Ashlee on

Kirstie – I totally agree. My first thought is that she looks like Miley!!

Jane on

I think she looks a little like both parents. She is such a cute girl.

She’s beautiful and the spitting image of her Father and the Sambora family!! She’s gorgeous. Glad they got to have a fun night out

DADDY’S GIRL!!!! How gorgeous they both are, such a big fan of the Sambora’s

WOW. She is going to break more hearts than her mother ever did on Dynasty and Melrose Place altogether. She’s beautiful now and in five or so years… Richie’s gonna be busy!

Sidney, i would like to see a picture of full length. Where did you see the dress?

kayla on

the most beautiful girl I ever seen, she’s so special, just like Heather when she was on melrose – gorgeous

Tina on

Yes, that dress was a tad too short for my taste but her face looks pretty.

eliza on

I’ve just seen Ava’s dress – you can tell that girl already has fashion sense. The dress is really short but she has shorts under that so it’s ok for me

Liliana on

As Eliza said, Ava’s wearing shorts under the dress so I see no harm.

She’s a beautiful girl.

QT on

This girl is very pretty. She looks nothing like Miley Cyrus, thank goodness.

Ann on

She is as beautiful as her father is good looking and she looks just like him.
