Throughout Talula’s childhood, the father-daughter duo were regularly spotted out and about together, with Patrick frequently snapped on the school run with his daughter. 

Speaking on their relationship, Patrick told Parade, “We talk about all kinds of things. We listen to the news and discuss it. I remember when I would do stuff with my father and my mother. You want those moments. They go by very quickly.” 

After graduating from high school in 2020, 21-year-old Talula is now attending university in Washington D.C.

Speaking to People in 2008, Patrick shared, “It’s like a slapstick routine watching these drunk little men run around because they’re wobbly.”
