When it comes to daughters and boyfriends, every girl knows father knows best.

And in Jake Gyllenhaal‘s case, he’s got nothing to worry about (phew!)

As all the broken-hearted fangirls could attest, the (newly-taken) big screen hottie is definitely the type of guy you take home to meet mom and pops — at least that’s what Alyssa Miller‘s father would like to see happen.

“I haven’t met him yet, but he must be a great guy,” Craig Miller told CB!

Th proud papa said his gorgeous Sports Illustrated model daughter wanted to be the first to tell him about her famous new beau.

“She sounded really happy and so ecstatic. I haven’t heard her this happy in a long time,” he said.

But the romance so new she doesn’t want to gush too much.

“She didn’t give me any details because I’m the dad,” he laughed. “And she’s still young and shy. It’s a new relationship so she doesn’t want to answer any questions.

“She’s super busy right now and with the new relationship she’s got to spend a lot of time with him.

“But I do know she’s really excited about the relationship and she has a new agency. So she feels on top of the world.”

After just about one month together the cute couple have already gone public and taken it to the next level as they got snapped holding hands on an NYC stroll with Gyllenhaal’s mom, Naomi.

So could the 24-year-old brunette beauty be ‘the one’ for the 32-year-old heartthrob, whose famous exes include Kirsten Dunst, Reese Witherspoon and Taylor Swift.

“If she’s happy, I’m happy. If she thinks he’s a good guy, then he’s a good guy,” he added.

“I’m not really surprised. She’s phenomenal looking and a great person so anyone is lucky to be dating her.”
