Rosanna though didn’t let him get off the hook without talking about his daughter Dakota Johnson’s relationship with Chris Martin. The interview had been filled with good laughs when talking about the series reboot. When it came to talking about Dakota though, Don put the serious dad face look on! Marriage isn’t exactly around the corner for the couple. At least that’s what Don seems to think. If things get series though he’d have to have “the talk” with Chris Martin.
How Serious Is The Relationship Between Dakota Johnson & Chris Martin?
Dakota was spotted wearing a huge emerald ring at the begging of the year. That sparked rumors of a potential engagement. However, the year has essentially come and gone at this point and there has been no official word on a potential marriage. Dad Don Johnson also didn’t reveal to Rosanna Scotto whether the couple was engaged or not. Eluding the marriage question by saying,
“Oh God, I don’t think much further than about the next 7 to 8 seconds!”
Don Johnson Would Actually Be Very Happy About A Marriage
After getting rather flustered when he first got asked about his daughter’s relationship status Don went from concerned father to hopeful potential grandfather. He essentially mentioned that although he doesn’t know of any marriage plans in the near future he’d be on board with those plans. Since, marriage could lead to grandchildren, and that’s an idea that he would be really interested in. Don mentioned in the interview,
“If she decides to get married I would imagine that there would be grandchildren not to far after that, I’d be pretty excited about that part”
Don’s Getting His Father Talk Ready For Chris Martin
Having “Sonny” Crockett from Miami Vice as a father-in-law must be pretty scary. Chris Martin’s probably seen what he did to the bad guys in the streets of Miami. Rosanna Scotto really wanted to know if Don had already given the Coldplay frontman the talk. Johnson is waiting for the special moment to really let him have it! Although he did gush about Chris Martin earlier in the interview saying that he’s “a lovely guy”. Don’s still got some tricks up his sleeve to scare Martin a bit. He said,
“We’d kind of like to wait until they get a little more confident in their position, and a little further down the road with each other … and then We Have To Talk!”
Dakota Johnson’s Dad Certainly Has An Inner Cop
At 71 Don Johnson is still a very active actor. He currently stars alongside SNL’s Kenan Thompson in Kenan, a series created by Jackie Chan. He’s looking into the Nash Bridges revival. Plus he’s doing work on 3 movies that have a 2022 tentative release date. Maybe if Dakota and Chris Martin make him a grandfather he’ll slow down a bit! For now though, he wasn’t able to confirm the engagement rumors that have been circling the couple for years.
