Steve Harvey is still one of his daughter’s biggest supporters when it comes to Lori’s relationship with Michael B. Jordan

In a new interview with People, the Family Feud host opened up about his feelings on Jordan, whose praises he’s sung in the past after Jordan and Lori confirmed their relationship in January. 

“I don’t speak publicly about this type of stuff, but I’m happy for my daughter right now. I really am,” Harvey said. “It’s the first time I’ve been happy for her [in a relationship]. And it’s the first time she’s been happy.” 

He continued, calling Jordan a “good guy” and a “spiritual guy” with a “great family,” joking that he “has ways” to get rid of him if the good-guy part wasn’t true. 

“He’s not the sexiest man alive to me, at all. I haven’t seen it. I haven’t seen anything sexy yet,” Steve joked with People. “But I’m a father. I don’t give a damn if you [are] cute. I just want somebody to treat my princess the way I treat her.”

And with the way Harvey has previously talked about his daughter’s significant other, saying that he “can’t find nothing wrong with him” and that “it was really nice what he did” on Valentine’s Day for Lori, that may just be the case. The gift Jordan pulled off, of course, was renting out an aquarium just for him and Lori with a candlelit dinner, which Steve joked about on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

“Yeah, well good luck homie, ‘cause you know, Valentine’s come every year,” he said. “So I don’t know if you know this works or not, but I don’t know how you gonna top that. But good luck partner.”
