Following the shock reveal, Richie's daughter Ava took to social media to share a clip of Jacket Potato, before she gushed about her famous dad saying: "The secret is out! My talented daddio was on the Masked Singer UK and absolutely crushed it!"
The post was re-shared by the Richie Sambora Italian fan club on Twitter, with the guitarist also sharing the post as she paid a sweet tribute to his daughter.
He said: "I love you Ava so much," followed by a string of love hearts.
Richie welcomed daughter Ava with Hollywood icon Heather Locklear in 1997, after the couple married in 1994.
Heather and Richie later divorced in 2007, but have remained close friends, with their lookalike daughter Ava going on to follow in her parent's talented footsteps.
Ava landed her first acting role at the age of 14 in 2012 film, This is 40, where she played Wendy.
From there she has appeared in TV series such as Good Luck Charlie, TV film Mommy Be Mine and film A Dark Foe.
The star is also a model and appeared on the runway for her dad's fashion line, as well as appearing in the web series Summer Break 3.
Ava has since graduated from Loyola Marymount University, with Richie saying to People Magazine: "I'm very, very proud of her and the way she turned out. She's an amazing young woman with a bright future. She's just dedicated to being a good person. And she is."
Richie has also gushed over his daughter during previous interviews too, telling People Magazine that he refers to her as "my favourite girl."
"She and I are close and have a candid relationship. … I'm really proud of her — she's just a joy. My favourite girl — her and my mom, I always say."
