Matthew Lawrence's romance with Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas is receiving praise from one very important person — his brother.

Joey Lawrence told Page Six that he hopes his brother, 44, will find his "happily ever after" with the TLC group member, 53.

"It's pretty neat," Joey, 47, told the outlet. "At the end of the day, it's about being happy, right? You just try to find somebody that you could be happy with. So I'm happy that my brother's happy and that Chilli and he are happy together. That's all you hope for, no matter what happens, one way or another [because] you don't know."
