Joe Jonas and Gigi Hadid are making headlines as Hollywood’s hottest summer romance and the former boy bander already has the mother of his girlfriend’s stamp of approval, Dish Nation has exclusively learned.

“Gigi’s mom is Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster and she’s really excited about her daughter’s new relationship,” a source close to the reality star dished.

“She thinks Joe is a nice wholesome young man, and quite frankly, she’s just happy Gigi didn’t end up with a Justin Bieber type!”

Gigi, 20, dated Australian pop singer and actor Cody Simpson, 18, on and off for a year before the two split — presumably for good — this past May.

“It’s not that Yolanda didn’t like Cody, but she just feels like her daughter is a better fit with Joe, who’s a bit older and will maybe take care of Gigi in a more protective way,” the insider said.

“Especially with Yolanda being pretty sick right now…her only priority is Gigi and her other kids and making sure they’re happy.”

Yolanda, 51, was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2012 and has had a particularly rough battle with it this year. Now married to famed musician David Foster, Yolanda has three children with her ex-husband, Mohamed Hadid.

Joe has dated a slew of Hollywood beauties over the years, including Camilla Belle, Demi Lovato and Ashley Geene — and most recently he split with his girlfriend of two years, model Blanda Eggenschwiler last July.

But perhaps most surprisingly on board with the coupling? Joe’s (powerful and popular) ex-girlfriend, Taylor Swift — who is very good friends with Gigi and even had her in her new “Bad Blood” music video.

“Taylor and Gigi are good friends so she has no problem with her dating Joe,” the source said.

“Joe was a long time ago for Taylor and it was a fleeting romance. They’ve managed to develop a pretty solid friendship now. Besides, she already got over it the way she gets over every guy — she wrote songs about him!”

And talk about some serious double date action — Us Weekly recently reported that Joe’s brother Nick is dating one of Gigi’s BFFs, Kendall Jenner!

Not surprisingly, the report claims Gigi played matchmaker for the two.

“Gigi wants Kendall around all the time. She thinks it would be fun for all of them to hang out,” the source said.

“They are all going to end up hanging out regardless, so it seems like a simple situation, which could be a lot of fun.”
