Jennifer Aniston isn't very close to her mother, so when she had her new man Justin meet her dad John, it was a big deal for her.
So much, that during the lunchtime feast of lobster, wine, and soup, she was visibly nervous to onlookers — but an excited kind of nervous!
"Jen's a regular here and normally very relaxed," the onlooker explained. "This time she seemed more on edge. She was smiling a lot, but you could tell this was a special event for her.
"John looked very protective of Jen, and when Justin went to the restroom, he put his hand on top of hers," reveals the eyewitness. "It was sweet."
That IS pretty adorable! And apparently it went well — nobody was in a rush to leave as Jen had some coffee while the guys shared some port.
We really do hope this all works out for you Jenn, it seems like it's going right!
And John! Give us a call and let us know if you approved of Justin or not! LOLz!
