Savannah Chrisley's incarcerated parents, Todd and Julie Chrisley, are aware of her new romance with Robert Shiver — but only one of them is eager to meet him in person.

“You know, Dad is very against it just because, 'He's not gonna see me in this atmosphere and this environment,' and I feel like it's more a male pride type of thing,” the Unlocked podcast host, 26, told Entertainment Tonight of her 54-year-old father, who is serving a 10-year prison sentence for fraud.

“I feel like it's more a male pride type of thing,” she explained, though her mother is “very much all for it.”

“Cause she's like, 'Hey, if y'all are gonna end up together I need to meet him,'" the Chrisley Knows Best alum continued. "And I sent her pictures of us, obviously, and she's heard all the stories, so she is, like, vicariously living through me. So, he definitely will meet Mom, for sure. Who knows about Dad, but like I said, hopefully, things go in our favor and they'll be home sooner than later."

Savannah also shared how she’s always spoken to Todd about “everything” when it comes to “anyone I’ve ever dated,” confessing she misses her ability to catch him up on her love life.

"I long for those conversations,” the Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test star said wistfully. “To have them, to tell him all the amazing things that are happening within my relationship and how awesome Robert is and how he's responded to certain situations; how he has responded to situations in my life is something I've always wanted.”

“We both are very similar, so that's a thing I feel, like, he's the male version of me," she added.

Last week, Savannah and her new beau made their relationship Instagram-official with a series of loved-up photos shared. “Sometimes… it just works ❤️ #THTD,” she captioned the post, which featured a sweet snap of her gazing at Shiver before subsequent shots showed them leaning in to kiss.

Before PEOPLE broke the news in September that Savannah is dating the ex-football player, Chrisley had only ever shared a photo of the pair holding hands on her Instagram Story.

Shiver, 38, previously made headlines after his wife, Lindsay Shiver, allegedly plotted his murder alongside two co-conspirators. (It is unclear whether she has entered a plea.)

Savannah discussed her love life on The Viall Files podcast before going public with their relationship. “This guy that I’m talking to, his wife just tried to kill him. It’s fine,” she said at the time.

Following the episode, Savannah addressed her candor regarding how she first disclosed the relationship. “I just spilled my guts," she admitted to PEOPLE. "I have learned that I will not drink wine before going on a podcast, not that that's new, but it was bound and determined to come out.”

"I want to have as much respect for him and his situation as possible because he has three amazing little boys that are going to have to see and hear things one day," she added. "So for that, I'm like, I'm just going to enjoy our families in the best way that I can and not make it such a whole public ordeal.”
