Mel Gibson  Lucia  carousel

Mel Gibson took his darling daughter Lucia on a carousel ride at the pier in Santa Monica over the weekend, and the 2-and-a-half-year-old appeared to be having a blast on the merry-go-round. Mom Oksana Grigorieva was nowhere in sight, so Mel was in a pretty good mood too!

Lucia is Mel's eighth and youngest child -- he has one daughter and six sons with ex-wife Robyn Moore, so he certainly has plenty of parenting experience!
