“When you have children, you pray religiously that your child brings someone home who they’re evenly yoked with — that they have come from a similar background, and she has done that," Chrisley said in an interview with E! News. "They're young. Whether the relationship turns into a full-fledged, lifelong relationship, who knows! As of right now, if the relationship ended tomorrow, she would walk away a better woman because of the impact he has had on her."

Chrisley went on to praise Kennard.

"We love him. He's a good, decent, honest, honorable young man. He's very strong and committed to his faith. His family are quality, good, decent people,” Chrisley said, but acknowledged that this wasn’t the reaction people might be expecting.

"For me to be able to come on E! and say I actually like someone that my children are dating, there's a God!"

As for concerns about his daughter dating an athlete, Chrisley is confident that Kennard will do right by Savannah.

"We're OK with Luke because we don't believe that he'll step outside his faith," Chrisley said.
