Take That's Donald Howard has shared a rare snap of his daughter, Grace, after she graduated from university.

The 23 year old attended University of the Arts London and celebrated her achievement with her family on Wednesday, July 13.

Overcome with pride, Howard, 54, posted a photo of his daughter on Twitter where he told his followers he was "very proud".

It's been rumoured that the singer will reunite with his Take That bandmates soon but Wednesday was all about his daughter, as he wrote: "Very proud of this beautiful young lady @Gracefllness 2 years in the waiting for the world to rightly open."

The 54 year old added the hashtags: "#UALGrads #prouddad"

Grace could be seen in her black gown with pink trim, which symbolises the university and faculty she attended, and her black mortarboard.

She wore her long brunette locks in curls and beneath her cloak she wore a pink and gold patterned dress.

Howard's fans rushed to congratulate the young graduate, as one fan commented: "Awwww she’s sooooo beautiful Howard!! Huge congrats to her, You must be such a proud Dad!

"Can’t imagine how Uni life was over lockdown! Hope she managed to get to some of it & wasn’t all remote!"

Another added: "Awwwww how amazing!! Well done Grace!! Especially as Uni hasn’t been the usual experience."

A third joked: "Aw how lovely it makes me feel very old that you have a daughter old enough to graduate!! When did we all get so old!!"

And a fourth fan commented: "Well done girl now go out and show them all your hard work was well learned and you put in them hours learning yoyr craft. Goid luck going forward beautiful Clever girl xx"

Howard also took to Instagram to upload a video to his story of Grace throwing her cap.

The Take That vocalist wrote: "Two years too late because of that bloody covid thing. I am super proud of this one."

Howard shares Grace, who was born in 1999, with his ex-girlfriend Victoria Piddington.

And in June, Howard shared a snap of Grace enjoying a drink in the sun as he marked her 23rd birthday.

He captioned the post: "Happy 23rd birthday to my wonderful daughter Grace. I am so proud of you!!!! All my love Daddy. XX #birthday #daughter."

Howard also has a daughter called Lola with former partner, Marie-Christine Musswessels.

While he also has sons Bowie Taylan, six, and Dougie Bear, five, with his current wife Katie Halil, who he married in 2015.
