Everyone has their own feelings about Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin's relationship (we're loving it), but we're learning a whole lot more about the couple ... straight from dad, as in Dakota's dad. In an interview, Don Johnson shared his thoughts about his daughter dating Chris. He gave a curious statement with an "out of the mouths of dads" feel that showed not only his concern for Dakota, but the seriousness of her connection with the Coldplay singer. 

  • Dear dad let the world know that his daughter is, well, as awesome as we thought.

    At the National Television Awards on Tuesday, Don was asked about his daughter dating Chris. Of course, people want to know dad's take. And he gave one of the most incredible answers ever. "Yeah, that’s … uh troubling, isn’t it?” he said. 

    Oh Don ... such a jokester. Dakota's dad went on to day, “No, she’s a big girl. She can handle herself!” We love how he didn't really want to talk about it and instead let the relationship be as it is and for Dakota to speak for herself. He knows his daughter can handle this all herself. Don really seems like a fantastic dad. It's also clear from his non-answer that he approves.

    If dad is talking about it -- even in a small and diverting way -- things must really be getting serious. It doesn't seem like Dakota or Chris are the type of people who devote time to each other for no reason. They are really getting to know each other deeply and loving every minute of it. An insider reportedly told Us Weekly, "Chris sends Dakota his music to get her opinion. It's more than just a fling."  

    We're excited to hear new Coldplay music now.

  • This all shows how family is really important to Dakota.

    Dakota's relationship with her dad does seem like a really sweet one -- just like the one she has with her mom, Melanie Griffith. Family is majorly important, which is a good thing because Chris comes with his own little brood as well. He has two kids -- Apple, 13, and Moses, 11 -- with ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow. 

  • We can let their actions speak for themselves.

    If anyone does want to know just how well things are going between Chris and Dakota, one just needs to look to the recent sightings of them together. They have gotten cozy on the beach, at fashion shows, and even when traveling together. They seem to be really in tune with each other and that's such a beautiful thing. 

    To play on Dakota's dad's words "troubling" ... we'd say that this relationship seems to be anything but.
