The short answer unfortunately is no. Once you gifted the money to your daughter, you are not able to "un-gift" it or get it back. Since your daughter used the money to purchase the marital home, that money now becomes marital property.
The way that the home will be divided in a divorce typically is either by agreement (one party assumes the responsibility for the home) or the property is sold and the net proceeds for the sale are split 50/50 between the parties.
