Melanie Griffith has given her seal of approval to her daughter Dakota Johnson’s “special” boyfriend, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.
While attending the Global Gift Gala in London on Thursday night, Melanie told HELLO! and other reporters: “Have I given my seal of approval? Yeah he’s amazing.” The 62-year-old actress continued: “I’ve said that before I know you’re gonna repeat it, but he really is special.”
The seal of approval from the Working Girl actress comes soon after another interview in which she seemed to be singing the Coldplay singer’s praises.
Speaking to PEOPLE in September, Melanie said: “I think they are a great couple. I adore him!” The actress went on to state how she honours her daughter’s desire to keep things under wraps, however, stating: “But [Dakota] is very private about her life, and I respect that.”
Melanie’s daughter – Fifty Shades of Grey actress Dakota Johnson – has been reportedly dating Chris since late 2017. Rumours of the pair’s relationship began circulating after the two were spotted at a sushi restaurant in Los Angeles in October 2017, before being pictures two months later at an airport in Paris.
In a 2018 interview with Tatler magazine, the actress appeared to confirm the relationship with the musician. “I’m not going to talk about it”, the 30-year-old said, “but I’m very happy.” Earlier this year, various press outlets were reporting on the couple’s apparent split due to their differing views on starting a family together. Chris, who shares two children with his ex-wife, actress Gwyneth Paltrow, reportedly wanted more children whereas, it was stated, Dakota didn’t.
However, those rumours were seemingly put to bed in August of this year as the two were pictured together enjoying a romantic beach trip in Malibu, California, along with Chris’ ex Gwyneth and her new husband, Brad Falchuk. We love when everyone gets along!
