Hannah Gosselin’s boyfriend Lennon Johnson Jr. has her famous family’s seal of approval.

The Jon & Kate Plus 8 alum, 19, opened up about what she likes about her boyfriend of 18 months in a joint Entertainment Tonight interview with Johnson and her father Jon Gosselin.

"He's very kind," she shared. "He's really big on being the best version of yourself you can be. I think he makes me a good version of myself. And he has big dreams, and I love him."

Jon, 46, teased his daughter that her 21-year-old beau was just “all right” and she responded, "What do you mean?! You like Lennon!"

He quickly changed his tune, saying, "Yeah, we have a lot in common, Lennon and I."

"He gets along with Lennon," Hannah, who is studying business administration in college and says she gets good grades, added of her dad. "Don't pretend that you don't."

The teen’s grandmother also approves of Lennon, with Hannah recalling her grandmother being charmed by her boyfriend.

"Oh, she actually likes Lennon,” she said of her father’s mother. “He sat and he held the umbrella for her while it rained and they talked. They get along."

The college student — who documents her adventures with Lennon on the couple’s YouTube channel Lennon & Hannah — also revealed she is in touch with her mother Kate Gosselin and she has met Lennon.

When asked if she talks to Kate, she responded, "Well, yeah. She's my mom. We talk about school and we talk about life. She knows Lennon. So, yeah. I mean, obviously everybody has an opinion and I'm open to listening to everybody's opinion, but at the end of the day, my choices are my choices."

Hannah previously shared that she was on good terms with both of her parents.

"My relationship with my mom is pretty stable," the teen told Entertainment Tonight in 2022. "Like, we text each other and call each other on an average basis."

"She just, you know, wished me a happy birthday," she added. "You know, told me she loved me and it was great. Like, an average birthday text."

Following her parents' 2009 separation, Jon and Kate, 48, became embroiled in a messy divorce and custody battle. At the time, Hannah and her brother Collin decided to live with Jon, but the other four sextuplets — Leah, Joel, Alexis and Aaden — lived with Kate.

Choosing to live away from her siblings wasn't easy for Hannah. "It was a difficult decision leaving my siblings I did not want to be separated from them or even, like, live in a different household than them," she told the news outlet, adding that she just "always had a strong, good relationship" with her father.

"I chose to live with my dad. I feel like I just made the choice for myself," she added. "I have always been closer with my dad."
