    The lovely daughter-father memory was preceded by a separate post of pictures Sophie shared of her and her dad from childhood. One showed her as an infant being held in her shirtless dad’s arms, another a few years later of the two in rocking chairs (she’s in a big one and he’s in a little one) and one more of what appeared to be a bedroom singing session a few years after that.

    Fans went crazy over the photos with one writing, “Thank you for sharing these pictures and showing everyone that your dad was so much more than Dylan McKay.”
