During a Feb. 25 interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, host Jimmy Kimmel asked Harvey the hard questions about his daughter's dating life. Lori and Jordan were first spotted together in Nov. 2020, but they didn't confirm their relationship until Jan. 2021, according to Insider.

The good news is, this family's not feuding. "He is a nice guy, yeah, but he is not the sexiest man alive to me at all," Harvey said. All jokes aside, the TV host confessed that he approved of his daughter's boyfriend. "This kid—I like him," Harvey added. But Kimmel had a few more questions about the couple up his sleeve.

Kimmel asked Harvey if he thought it would be important for Jordan to read Harvey's books about relationships. "I think it's better if my daughters would read the d*** books," Harvey said. "That would be the smarter move."

However, Harvey said he knows that his kids will make decisions for themselves. "I'm just happy I can at least approve of one," he added. Kimmel asked if he'd approved of any of the previous suitors. "Nothing ever," Harvey said, perhaps in jest. "Pure hatred." And for a guest Kimmel won't be chatting with, find out The One Guest Jimmy Kimmel Banned From His Show.

Kimmel remarked on the special Valentine's Day that Jordan planned for Lori, including renting out an entire aquarium for the two of them. "Yeah, well, good luck, homie. You know, Valentine's come every year, I don't know if you know how this works or not, but I don't know how you gonna top that. But good luck, partner," Harvey said. However, the loving dad did commend his daughter's boyfriend for his efforts. "I mean, it was really nice what he did, you know, I'm happy for him. He's a great guy," Harvey continued.
