Jon Bon Jovi Back to Happy Times With Troubled Family

Stop The Presses!

Jon Bon Jovi was spotted out on the streets of SoHo this week with not one, but two lovely ladies — namely, his wife of 24 years, Dorothea, and eldest child Stephanie Bongiovi. The smiling trio were missing Stephanie's younger brothers, Jesse, Jacob, and Romeo, but still radiated an undeniable strong family bond nevertheless.

Fans will no doubt be glad to see the Bongiovi clan looking healthy, happy, and tight, as they've weathered some tough times recently. Stephanie, 20, made headlines last November when she overdosed on heroin and ended up calling her parents from the hospital in the middle of the night. The Hamilton College student was arrested and charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, but the charges against her have been dropped.

Jon has recently opened up about the incident, which he termed "horrible" and told U.K. outlet the Daily Mirror was his "worst moment as a father." Things are going much better these days, however: The rocker, who says he himself has never touched drugs in his career, told Katie Couric in May that his daughter is doing "great" and that he's "blessed she's healthy and whole."
