Meeting the parents can be nerve-wracking for any couple, but luckily for Charlie D’Amelio and her musician boyfriend Landon Barker, the conversation went off without a hitch.

In this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday, the 18-year-old TikTok star says that when Landon introduced her to his father, Travis Barker (of Blink-182 fame) and his wife, Kourtney Kardashian, they “really me let in with open arms.” (Landon’s mother is actress Shanna Moakler.)

“They’ve been nothing but kind to me,” says Charlie. “I’m so grateful that he has such a great family around him.”

Charlie adds that Landon’s sisters Alabama Barker and Attiana De La Hoya (Mokler’s daughter with Oscar De La Hoya) have also “been very sweet.”

Things went just as smoothly for Landon, 18, when he met Charlie’s parents Mark and Heidi — who also share a daughter, Dixie, 21, for the first time.

“Who can’t be happier with [Charli and Dixie] brought home,” says Mark, 53. (Dixie has been dating fellow TikTok star Noah Beck since 2020.)

Charlie and Landon’s budding relationship — which began after they met at Coachella in April and he “slipped” in his DMs — will be further explored in season two of the D’Amelio family’s Hulu reality series d’amelio showPremieres on 28 September.

“We go where I am with our relationship on the show,” she says. “It’s on my own terms, which is really cool.”

Although he enjoys showing off his relationship on social media, Charlie – who is currently competing with his 53-year-old mother Heidi, dancing with the Stars — clarifies that it is “definitely a relationship first, social media whenever we feel like it.”

“We post each other when We want,” she says. “He’s liberating. I guess it saves us from any speculation, ‘Oh, they haven’t seen each other’ – which I have seen my sister [with Noah], It’s never fun.”

When it comes to seeing any negative comments about their relationship, Charlie says, “I think I’m so lucky to have someone like Landon in my life to let me look at my phone and look at that stuff.” I don’t even feel the need.. I just have to be with the people who love me in that moment.”
