Liam Gallagher's daughter Molly is "thankful" her father walked out.

Last year, British musician Liam Gallagher met his daughter Molly, 21, for the first time in almost two decades. Fast forward a year later, and it seems that much has been forgiven between the former estranged father and daughter as they publicly continue their relationship.

The Oasis frontman, 46, this week told The Times, “Me and Molly met in a pub across the road. Then we came here, got really drunk and that was really good.”

In the interview, Gallagher is featured in a photograph with Molly and his two sons, 19-year-old Lennon (born to first wife Patsy Kensit), and 17-year-old Gene (born to second wife Nicole Appleton).

But there’s another one of Gallagher’s daughters missing from the photo: Gemma, his six-year-old daughter with American journalist Liza Ghorbani.

Gallagher had been married to Appleton for five years when he had an affair with Ghorbani; but his wife did not know anything about it, or that there had been a child born of the union, until Gallagher made a fateful phone call to her in 2013.

According to their divorce judge, it was a call Gallagher only reluctantly made when he realised the news about his deception was about to go public.

Judge Martin O'Dwyer’s 2015 settlement statement said: "It was only when publicity was about to occur in April 2013 when Mr Gallagher told his wife.

"The circumstances were extremely unfortunate. The wife was away on holiday and she was informed by telephone by the husband.”

The judge noted the distress the manner of delivery of the news had caused Appleton.

It has been reported that the affair between Gallagher and Gorbhani began after she wrote about him for The New York Times in 2010, and that she subsequently sued him for $3 million a month child support.

To this date, Gallagher has not met Gemma, who is the second child of one of Gallagher’s extramarital affairs; the other, of course, being Molly.

Gallagher’s eldest daughter is the product of his affair with musician Lisa Moorish, whom he was with whilst married to actress Patsy Kensit. Gallagher’s affair with Moorish ended that three-year marriage.

Molly seems to have accepted her experience with her dad, as this week she said: “I don’t have any anger.

“I’m actually thankful for how I was brought up with my mum and how my life’s been.

“It’s all happened the way it was meant to happen. We just got on and I’m happy to have him now.”

Gallagher has previously explained his estrangement with Molly because of the way his affair with Moorish ended.

"She’s welcome in my world, without a doubt, but I just ain’t met her, because her mam’s... listen, we don’t work. We don’t get on," Gallagher told GQ magazine.

At the time of Molly’s reconciliation with her dad, Gallagher shared a photo to Instagram standing alongside Molly, Lennon and Gene backstage after he supported the Rolling Stones in London.

Gallagher has been in a relationship with his former assistant Debbie Gwyther since 2015.
