Speaking on America's "The Ellen DeGeneres Show", he quipped, "You know what, I have tried not to like him. I have tried to find something wrong with him. Because I got rid of all of them (Lori's former boyfriends). All of them."
"Some of them snuck in through the back door and lasted a lot longer than I wanted."
However, after meeting Michael and his family, Steve was truly won over by his daughter's new beau.
"This guy is such a good guy. He is one of the nicest guys," Steve gushed. "I met his father, I sat up with him, we've talked for hours. I just can't find nothing wrong with him (sic)."
"I'm hoping this lasts because this is a really, really good guy... And I can't whoop him!"
Steve adopted Lori and her two siblings following his 2007 marriage to their mother, Marjorie, while he also has four adult kids of his own from previous relationships.
