Days of Our Lives veteran John Aniston says that his daughter found a good man in Justin Theroux.

Justin Theroux gets Jennifer Aniston's dad approval

For a guy, getting the approval of his girlfriend's parents — especially her father — is one of the most nerve-racking parts of the relationship. However, Jennifer Aniston's boyfriend, Justin Theroux, can rest easy — her dad loves him!

"He's a charming young man," John Aniston told US Weekly on Sunday night at the Loukami's Celebrity Cookbook launch. Aniston's father — better known as Victor Kiriakis on Days of Our Lives — added that he gets together with his daughter and Theroux as often as possible.

"I think they make a wonderful couple," said Aniston's dad, 78.

That said, the couple is still mum on their future plans. Aniston and Theroux started dating earlier this year after meeting on the set of Wanderlust. The Horrible Bosses star soon went into relationship overdrive with her new beau — they even moved in together.

Now, OK! Magazine cites a "source" that claims the pair is getting married soon in Aniston's favorite vacation spot, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

"It's definitely going to happen and right now it's looking like sooner rather than later," the source told the gossip magazine.

Another gossip magazine, Italy's Grazia, claims that the former Friends star also met with Theroux's ex-girlfriend to "clear the air."

"Jen told Heidi that she understands what a painful time she has been going through and explained that she wanted her to know, hand on heart, that she would never steal another woman's man," Grazia quoted a source as saying.

"Jen has always been adamant that their relationships did not cross over. Heidi apparently got quite tearful during the meeting, as it was understandably a lot to take in."

Yep, not buying that. We choose to believe what Aniston told Hello! about her future plans.

"I am not planning to get married any time soon. This ring that I'm wearing is not an engagement ring. I've been married once and I don't know if I'll get married again, but I can tell you that as of this very moment, as of today, I have no plans to get married," she told the British magazine earlier this year.

Glad we cleared that up — for today, at least.
