Dooley did not have a proper relationship with her father, who had left the family when she was just 2 years old and had a drinking problem. According to Daily Mail, her father tried to come back to her life, when she was 13 years old but they never reconciled before his death years ago, when Dooley was in her 20s.

Her mother shared,

"He was only living with her and me until she was two and a half. It wasn't until she was nine that she saw him again. He came back for the occasional wedding or family occasion. When he tried to come back in her life in a more meaningful way when she was aged 13 it was too late for them to reconcile. She was sad because it was a lost opportunity."
