Scott Disick and Sofia Richie have been dating for quite some time now, despite many fans disapproving of the relationship from the beginning. The pair initially received flack for their romance due to the fact that Disick is 15 years older than Richie. However, despite the large age gap between the two, things have seemingly been going well since the pair started dating in 2017. Even Sofia’s mom, Diane Alexander, approves of the relationship between her daughter and the older Disick.

Alexander, who divorced Lionel Richie in 2004, opened up to ‘Heat Magazine’ and said that she was thrilled with her daughter’s relationship to Disick. Alexander admitted that Disick was “a really good guy.” She then went on to say about Disick, “I love him! And he’s such a good dad, I don’t know if people really know that. He’s at home with them every night – homework, bedtime.” Alexander then gave credit to her daughter, explaining that she trusts her intuition in terms of the relationships she chooses.

Alexander went on to say, “She’s really wise and she doesn’t do anything wrong relationship-wise – she knows right from wrong. Sofia means wisdom. I learn a lot from her… She’s so independent, taking care of herself. I’m proud of her.” Despite the fact that the age difference between the two was glaring to many, Alexander wasn’t too bothered by it. From someone who has a better vantage point than most, Richie’s mom explained that “It’s very well-adjusted in my eyes, all of it. Everyone seems in a healthy place.”

It reportedly took a little bit more time to adjust to the relationship for father Lionel Richie. A source told ‘E! News’ that “Lionel has accepted their relationship but still isn’t entirely 100 percent on board with Scott mostly because of the age difference and how young Sofia is. Lionel can see how happy Sofia is though so he is definitely making more of an effort with Scott.” Perhaps things have changed over the years since the relationship has seemingly stretched longer than many expected.

In 2017, Lionel Richie opened up to Australia’s ‘Daily Telegraph via ‘E! News’ and said of the relationship, “She’s 19. When you’re 19 you know everything. Is it going to be for life? I don’t know. But for right now it’s just a phase and I’m going to stand real still in the corner, get me a good drink and not make too much noise.” However, Disick and Richie are still going strong, despite what many fans said in the beginning.
