‘Some people know each other a while and there’s a friendship first, but when we met that night, it was very clear that this was the woman of my life.’

Andy also revealed that he was so enchanted by Marivi, now 64, that he proposed to her the evening they met.

The actor revealed that his film producer wife pokes fun of him about it to this day as he said: ‘She busts my chops saying that I proposed to all the girls that night but that’s not true!’

His latest project – which is a remake of the 1950 classic comedy of the same name – comes out at a very interesting time as his daughter Daniella is getting married on June 11 and son Dominik will tie the knot on July 9.

Andy explained: ‘It’s weird how it happened — three fathers of the bride in 30 days.

‘But I couldn’t pull [from his role as disapproving dad in the film] because in reality, I love my sons-in-law and they’re family. I’m just going to take it all in and be festive. I want to enjoy the moment.’

Father Of The Bride is currently streaming on HBO Max.
