Father and daughter bond is said to be the strongest in the world. However, this was never the case between Robin and her father Andre. It was not as if Andre did not wish to meet or know her or had some disliking towards his daughter. The only reason for this daughter’s father’s boding not developing was the fact that he barely got time to spend some quality moments with his wife or daughter.
Andre was always on the move and had to remain mobile mostly. He was a famous wrestler and had events and shows all over. This kept him away from home for long durations and he really never got the time and opportunity to spend some time with his family. Moreover, he was a person of the kind who always lived life on his terms and thus was of a carefree nature.
