She may have had her reservations, but it seems former Days of Our Lives star Lisa Rinna has had a change of heart when it comes to her teenage daughter’s romance with Scott Disick.

During a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Lisa had a far more relaxed approach to 19-year-old Amelia Hamlin dating the much-older reality TV star.

When asked by host Andy what her first reaction was to learning that her youngest daughter was dating the 38-year-old, Lisa initially shied away from the question. "Uh, yeah," she said, laughing.

As Andy dug deeper, he asked the actress if she’d been in contact with her pal, Kris Jenner (65), about the romance. Kris is, of course, the mother of Kourtney Kardashian, Scott's ex and the mom of his three kids.

"I have not," she said, before adding, "I have met him now."

Andy asked how it went, and Lisa pointed out that Scott has also met Harry Hamlin, Lisa's husband and Amelia's dad. The couple are also parents to 22-year-old model Delilah. 

"He's more handsome in person. And he was very nice. We had a very nice time. He met Harry, and there you go. There it is," Lisa said.

The star then seemingly said a lot without actually saying much when she ended her comments with, "It is what it is, guys! It is what it is."

Lisa has rarely offered public remarks about Amelia and Scott's relationship but broke her silence by referencing their romance with a comical Instagram Story post in April. 

The mother of two shared a photo of Scott and Amelia from the couple's trip that month to Miami, alongside a throwback photo of Lisa herself.

"We both seem to share a love of bucket hats," Lisa quipped in the caption. 

In November, a source connected to the Hamlin family said Lisa (57) and Harry (69) were getting used to the idea of their child dating the entrepreneur.

At the time, Amelia's parents still felt close to her ex, Mercer Wiederhorn.

"Harry and Lisa were sad to see Amelia and Mercer split because they loved him," the insider shared.

"He was like family, but they understand."

The source went on to say that the parents were worried about Scott’s “baggage”. 

“Lisa isn’t going to acknowledge this publicly for now because she’s still trying to wrap her head around it and thinks this is a phase. But when she does speak about it, she’ll keep her cool but really, she’s worried. That’s her youngest kid.”

Clearly, once a relationship hits the meet-the-parents milestone, it's safe to say the "just-a-phase" ship has sailed. 

Back in March, sources insisted the relationship between the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and the model was "getting serious".

"He's been telling friends how much she means to him and how into her he is,” the insider said.

As for their 18-year age gap? Scott and Amelia don’t feel the nearly two decades between them.

"She grew up in the industry and knows how all this works," the insider said.

"It's a different type of maturity, and they really don't feel the age difference."
