While there's not a ton of info surrounding Selena Gomez's relationship with her dad, Ricardo Gomez (pictured above on the right -- her stepdad, Brian, is on the left), one thing we do know is that he used his ridiculously adorable daughter to pick up chicks at Hooters.

In an interview with Harpers Bazaar, the 'Come & Get It' singer laughed about her former "wing man" status, saying, "When I was 7, my dad would go to Hooters to watch [San Antonio] Spurs games. But he started noticing that when I would come, with my little pigtails, all the waitresses would be like, ‘Hey!’ So he ended up half spending time with me but with all those cute girls coming over."

Selena actually grew up mainly in her mother's care, and even though her mama, Mandy, struggled a lot to make ends meet, she needn't worry about her daughter anymore. The 'Come & Get It' songstress has been raking in tons of dough from her TV and movie roles, singing career and endorsements.

Side note: Demi Lovato was invited to the Gomez family BBQ that these pics are from! Check out a photo of Demi, Selena and Sel's dad goofing around below.
