Meat Loaf, whose real name was Michael Aday, shared his children with his first wife Leslie whom he was married to for about two decades until 2001.

Leslie had Pearl from a previous marriage but Meat Loaf adopted her. A few years later, he and Leslie conceived Amanda.

Pearl grew to become a singer herself and also married Scott Ian, who shot to fame as the rhythm guitarist for Anthrax.

Meanwhile Amanda became an actress, appearing on such programs as Carnivale, My Name Is Earl and Rizzoli & Isles.

Tributes poured in from friends and colleagues for the late musician, who once called himself a ‘fat motherf***er’ while discussing his weight loss to MailOnline.

One of the in memoriam messages came from Susan Sarandon, who starred with him in The Rocky Horror Picture Show in 1975.

‘Big man, big voice, big heart. In my experience, always a gentleman,’ she said in a statement to People magazine. ‘Condolences to his family.’
