50 Shades Freed star Dakota Johnson, 28, the daughter of actors Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, has been quietly dating Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, 41, for more than six months. Chris' ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow was reportedly consciously cool with the new coupling, but what does mom Melanie think?
“I adore him!” she told PEOPLE while attending the Global Gift Foundation USA Women’s Empowerment Luncheon.
Melanie isn't shouting her praise from the rooftops because she knows her daughter likes to keep i relatively on the low: “But she is very private about her life and I respect that.”
With three films in post-production and another called Sound of Metal (in which she plays a heavy metal singer) in pre-production, Dakota is keeping busy beyond her secretive relationship.
