Willow announced last year she was pursuing a modelling career, and had even signed with an agency.

Karl, who split from ex-wife Cassandra in 2016 after 21 years of marriage, said the family ‘fully support Willow in wherever her heart takes her’.

‘She doesn’t go into anything blindly, especially the fashion world. She’s a strong, independent young woman and wants to pursue lots of things in life. We love her spirit,’ he told Stellar magazine.

Cassandra added: ‘I encourage all my children to work hard and pursue their dreams and aspirations.

‘Willow knows who she is and what she wants, and those attributes make me extremely proud.’
