Are you putting in another "of" ab? Or did you mean to take one out?

Yup, the fist "of" should be taken out. Is that his daughter, of whose talent he is very proud of.

But if jays needs to chose between those two, second sentence, "Is that his daughter of whose talent he is very proud", is more appropriate, without comma in front of "of"
