Seeing as everyone from our nan to her ladradoodle Norris have an opinion on Justin Bieber and Sofia Richie's relationship, it was only a matter of time before her father and famous singer man Lionel Richie shared his thoughts.

So Justin and Sofia confirmed their relationship earlier this month with a series of cute Instagram pics. They were later papped holding hands and being all lovey-dovey in the street, before *that* Selena Gomez drama went down and they went on a bit of a social media hiatus.

And Lionel was keen to disclose much information about their relationship, either, responding to a pap asking 'how do you feel about Justin dating your daughter?' by saying: "I'm not going there. I have strict orders not to go there."

Tbf, it's awkward for ANY teenager to hear their dad talk about their love life, let alone when your dad is Lionel Richie and the boy in question in Justin Bieber. Lols.

The pap then asked whether Justin had his approval, to which he said "yes". Cue Sofia running off saying 'This is so uncomfortable', Lionel having a little laugh to himself and the coolest dad of the year award having a new contender. 

SO GOOD.
