Forgive former “Melrose Place” star Jack Wagner if he feels like he’s living a real-life TV movie. The past couple of months have been filled with mystery, drama, tears, and hugs. Last August, Wagner and his longtime girlfriend and former “Melrose” co-star Heather Locklear announced their engagement. In early November, they called it off. Why? Family considerations. He has two daughters from a previous marriage, and Locklear has a 13-year-old daughter from her relationship with Bon Jovi’s Richie Sambora and celeb news sites report the two had trouble “blending” their broods. But another wrinkle in their decision just surfaced. According to reports, prior to calling off the engagement, Wagner was contacted by a 23-year-old woman who introduced herself as a his daughter. And she was correct. The woman, named Carrie, was the result of a fling in the 1980s and given up for adoption as an infant. “Carrie caught Jack right before he went on stage,” reported TMZ, “and according to sources, she gave Jack the full story and the two shared a tearful embrace. Jack was so smitten, he invited Carrie to another show the next day … and introduced her to the entire audience.” Watch the video for the whole story.
