"I'm begging her the only way I know how," he said. "I want to talk with her so badly."

The former Disney star and her older sister Dallas have been estranged from their father for over a decade.

"We were so close when she was little," Patrick said. "My little daughter was my partner, I just love her so much."

Patrick lives alone now, following the death of his beloved dog Dakota, and says that he still holds out hope that he and Demi can repair their relationship.

"I want Demi to know that I would do anything in the world for my little girl, I just want to hear her voice," Patrick cried.

"Demi, please call your daddy!"
