“The first time, the only thing he said to Blake all day was, ‘You hurt her, I’ll hurt you. I’m watching you like a hawk, and I’ll break your legs if you do anything to her.’ Blake was like, ‘Yes, sir, all right!’ But my dad loves him, the whole family loves him. We’ve been dating for 10 months now, so he’s like a part of the family,” she said. "We’re always together. When I’m in Louisiana, it’s a seven-hour drive away, and when I’m in L.A., it’s more like 32 hours. Basically, we’re best friends. He’s a great guy who really has a heart searching for God. He’s not perfect but he strives to be, and that’s all I can ask for.”
