He may have lost his fiance last week after Heather Locklear announced that their engagement was off.
But Melrose Place star Jack Wagner has gained a daughter - one that he never knew he had.
The 52-year-old was united with his long lost daughter Carrie just two weeks ago after she tracked him down.

The now 23-year-old was put up for adoption as a baby in 1988 by a unnamed woman whom Jack had had a fling with, according to TMZ.
The pretty brunette, who grew up in New York with her foster parents, tracked the actor down earlier this month with the help of a private detective.
It was at a concert in Boca Raton, Florida, where she approached him for the first time.

Jack, who is also a pop-rock singer, was there to perform with Rick Springfield and just seconds before he climbed on stage, Carrie approached him.
A source told the website that she told Jack the whole story right there and then.
Tearing up, the actor then embraced his daughter for the very first time.

Split: Jack's ex-fiance Heather Locklear announced their split last week
One person who won't be attending the celebration is his ex-fiance Heather.
The 50-year-old actress announced her split from Jack just last week.
She was then seen not wearing her engagement ring as she and daughter Ava attended the premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 in Los Angeles.

Her spokesperson confirmed the split to Us Weekly, saying: 'Jack and Heather are no longer engaged.'
Heather and her mini-me: The actress' 14-year-old daughter Ava is certain to be upset by the split
The actor proposed to Heather in August of this year; they have only been engaged for three months.
They met in the 1990's after appearing as lovers Amanda Woodward and Dr. Peter Burns on the primetime soap opera Melrose Place.
Their relationship didn't turn romantic until 2007.
Prior to her romance with Wagner, the blonde bombshell was married to rockers Richie Sambora and Tommy Lee.
Ava, 14, is her daughter with Sambora, whom she was married to from 1994-2007.
Veteran soap star Wagner was also previously married to his General Hospital love interest Kristina Wagner; they divorced in 2006.
The split may be hard on Ava, who was ecstatic that her mother was remarrying.
'Ava was so excited when we told her,' Heather told People. 'She hugged Jack, said congratulations, and she immediately wanted to see the ring.'
'I want her to do what makes her happy,' added Ava. 'That's the main point.'
