Steve Harvey says of Lori Harvey and Michael B. Jordan's romance: "It's the first time I've been happy for her [in a relationship]. And it's the first time she's been happy."

The comedian recently spoke to PEOPLE (the TV Show!)'s senior correspondent Jeremy Parsons and said: "I don't speak publicly about this type of stuff, but I'm happy for my daughter right now."

The couple went public with their relationship in January – and the Family Feud host previously joked of the actor's People title: "You're not the sexiest man in the world to me."

He says now, however, the Black Panther star is "just a good guy".

"If he wasn't, get him out of here, 'cause I have ways," he commented. "But I can't say nothing bad, man. He's just got a great family, man. He's a spiritual guy."

The proud father added: "I just want somebody to treat my princess the way I treat her."
