Green Mile actor Doug Hutchison, 51, shocked many with his controversial marriage to 16-year-old Courtney Stodden.
But now, Courtney's mother Krista has come to the defense of her new son-in-law.
'He’s not creepy,' she told Radar. 'He is such a great guy, he’s so intelligent.'
Krista, who stepped out in Los Angeles with her daughter and Green Mile actor Doug earlier today, is not perturbed by the 35-year age gap.
'I see why they’re together, he looks like he’s in his early 30s, and Courtney looks like he’s in her late 20s,' she told the website.
Krista looked more than happy as she ran errands with the unlikely couple.
Courtney, who is a wannabe singer and actress, wore her usual full face of makeup in a black strapless dress and platform heels.
She joined her husband of three months, who wore a more casual ensemble of khaki shorts and polo shirt.
Radar has also reported that Krista has become Courtney's manager and has moved in next door to her daughter in Los Angeles.
'Doug was managing Courtney's career, but he has so many things coming his way that he just can't handle it all,' she told the website. 'It will be better for Courtney with me managing her.
'I love my daughter, and I've been a good parent,' she added.
The controversial couple married in Las Vegas back in May where it is legal for a 16-year-old to wed with their parents' blessing.
The couple initially met over the Internet when Courtney signed up for acting classes on Doug's website.
