Timothy revealed that he found out about his son’s engagement on the internet.
“I haven’t talked to them in ages, but if everything one reads on the internet is true, they’re having a good time together,” Timothy, told The U.S. Sun on Wednesday.
“He’s quite busy with all of his newfound activities. He’s been working a lot, which no one seems to care about. They care about romance,” he continued.
When asked whether he approves of the pair getting married, Timothy said, “That’s fine by me! I’m happy about it.”
Timothy revealed that he thinks the couple will be able to make things work this time around.
Ben and Jennifer were previously engaged in the early 2000s but called it off.
“I don’t know anything about wedding plans or anything like that. But I don’t imagine there will be a repeat of the last wedding arrangements,” he said. “The last time the media went berserk. They just went crazy, and I’m sure that had an effect; it would have an effect on anyone, really.”
He added, “But I imagine they can handle it more now, I hope so. Ben’s getting up there; he’s pushing 50.”
Timothy also expressed how he feels about Jennifer.
“I did meet Jennifer when they first dated,” he said. “There’s a lot I admire about her. She’s quite a special woman. What I like most about her is that she did it all herself. She brought herself up on so many different levels. She’s obviously very talented.”
He appreciates that she is a hard worker and got to where she is by working hard, not by having things handed to her.
