Mitch Winehouse insists he "couldn't be more proud" of daughter Amy.
The former taxi driver - who was recently hospitalised with stress after dealing with his troubled daughter - says his pride for the 'Rehab' singer will never fade.
As he unveiled Amy's waxwork at London's Madame Tussauds museum yesterday morning (23.07.08), he said: "Nobody - as a family - nobody could be more proud of their child. I mean, she's a wonderful kid, she's a great girl, and we're extremely proud of her."
Mitch also spoke about reports Amy is keen to have five children as soon as her husband Blake Fielder-Civil - who has been sentenced to 27 months in jail on charges of GBH (grievous bodily harm) and perverting the course of justice - is released.
He added to UK TV show 'GMTV': "It would be great to be grandparents. If Blake cleans up his act, as I'm sure he will do, they'll have a wonderful life together and we can look forward to being a happy family."
