“I really am.
"It's the first time I've been happy for her [in a relationship].
“ And it's the first time she's been happy."
Before he praised “good guy” Michael.
He added: "He's just a good guy.
“If he wasn't, get him out of here, 'cause I have ways.
"But I can't say nothing bad, man.
“He's just got a great family, man.
“He's a spiritual guy."
And after Michael was previously named People’s Sexiest Man Alive, Steve joked that doesn’t really carry any clout as far as he’s concerned.
He added: "He's not the sexiest man alive to me, at all.
"I haven't seen it.
“I haven't seen anything sexy yet.
"But I'm a father.
“I don't give a damn if you [are] cute.
"I just want somebody to treat my princess the way I treat her."
Speaking previously about winning the SMA gong, which was awarded to him in November 2020, Michael said it was “a good club to be part of”.
He said: “You know, everybody always made that joke, like, ‘Mike, this is the one thing you’re probably not going to get.
“But it’s a good club to be a part of.”
