My interest in her is very proper.”Lonstein is quoted once about the difficulty of dating a celebrity—“I would like my life to be normal and just go about being a student, but these daily obstacles don’t take away from our relationship”—and also cites “a source close to her family” as saying that her parents approve of their relationship (there is no indication that they didn’t).
