3. Connick Told Ellen Degenres in June 2015 That He Was Open Minded About His Daughter’s Dating
Back in June 2015 in an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Harry expressed his pride at seeing his daughter graduate from New Canaan High School, where she was on the honor roll. He added about his open mindedness regarding his daughter’s dating, saying:
I think that’s such an antiquated way to talk about young women. It’s almost presuming they don’t have the good judgement to go out with a guy that’s appropriate for them, so like dad has to come in and save the day. Man, the way I raised my daughters, and Jill, the way we raised our kids, hopefully they will have enough self esteem so that they’ll be able to attract guys of a certain caliber…
He added that he didn’t think it would be necessary to have a shotgun at the ready in case any potential suitors get out-of-line.
