Alexis’ dad Alex says his new son-in-law, who is older than him, is ‘the nicest man I’ve ever met in my life.’
Not only did 16-year-old Courtney Alexis Stodden have her father’s approval to marry 51-year-old Green Mile actor Doug Hutchison, but it sounds like he was thrilled about their nuptials! “Every father can only pray to have such a man behind their daughter,” Doug, 47, tells RadarOnline.com in an unspeakably weird interview.
Yes, those really are the words of Courtney’s 47-year-old father, who is four years YOUNGER than his new son-in-law. Alexis and Doug were married May 20 in Las Vegas.
Alex adds that Courtney is “one of the most level headed girls out there and I’m not just saying that because she’s my daughter. Doug is the nicest man I’ve ever met in my life.”
Once a daddy’s girl, always a daddy’s girl.
And by the way, these two aren’t breaking the law with their marriage! “Shockingly it is legal,” says top NYC divorce attorney Vikki Ziegler. “However generally you must have one parent or a legal guardian be present at the ceremony or a notarized document for the individual who is 16-years-old to get a marriage license. If you’re under 16, marriage can only be authorized under a court order. If the parents refuse to sign or give their permission then perhaps a court would intervene. Courts unless there is a crime alleged or committed generally do not step in.”
