Yes, some varieties do. It just depends on which one you have. Here is an article for further care: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/gerbera-daisy/growing-gerbera-daisies.htm

Gerbera daisy do not usually develop petals from the center disk. Fasciation is a term for unusual growth, including petals, and you can find pictures on the internet. Aster yellows is a disease that can cause abnormal growth/petals. It affects traditional daisies but I didn't see reference to Gerbera. Here is a link some infected daisy images: https://www.google.com/search?q=aster+yellows+disease+on+daisies&client=safari&rls=en&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjJ3Jqt_-vWAhWM5IMKHW1dBhUQ_AUICigB&biw=1689&bih=896
