She was his very glamorous plus one at the GQ Men of the Year Awards.
But Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho looked less than impressed to be on the red carpet with his 18-year-old daughter last night.

It may not be the wildest leap of the imagination to suggest that the Special One’s displeasure was provoked by Matilde’s extremely revealing outfit.
Low cut and supershort, the showstopping piece was a £2,145 velvet tuxedo dress by Balmain – a French label adored by the Kardashians among others
Matilde is the eldest child of 52-year-old Mourinho and his wife Mathilde. She has a younger brother named José Mário Jr , 14.
She has already lived in Portugal, Italy and Spain as well as the UK and spent much of her childhood in Belgravia during her father’s first stint at Chelsea.
Days later, she and the boyband singer were spotted leaving a nightclub together – and doing their very best to avoid the attentions of waiting photographers.
However, a representative for Horan later scotched the rumours, telling MailOnline: ‘They’re not dating, they’re just friends.’
Mourinho who returned to Chelsea for a second time in June 2013, was at the GQ Awards to accept the Editor’s Special Award recognising his many footballing achievements.
For all the attention, her father, who has made no secret of his staunch Catholic faith, has said he is happy to have his family back in Britain because of the extra privacy available.
He also revealed that his wife and daughter rule the roost in his home, telling the Big Issue Magazine that the two ‘are the bosses and control everything in our house’.
‘A good night for me is to have a nice dinner with my wife and son and daughter,’ he added, in the same interview.
‘Obviously, now [the children] are getting older and they are starting to have their lives and they have their friends also, so at this moment with school, football, university – we cannot be like before with lunch and dinner together every day.
