He becomes panic-stricken knowing he will have to tackle everything from make-up to boys to driving…on his own. His daughters – Mirabel (15), Elisa (12) and Gigi (8) – have also been busy. They have taken matters into their own hands by making it their mission to get their dad back in the game…the dating game, that is.
