"They’re in the process of adopting me, I already feel like," Mendes joked about Consuelo's and his wife.
"Like every time I have a crush on a guy, Mark like steps in and evaluates," she added. "Mark is like my actual dad in that way, where he’s like very protective. As if I have to get his seal of approval."
As for her TV dad's requirements for a guy to date his TV daughter, Mendes said "manners" and being a "gentleman" are key.
"The first thing he said about one guy was, ‘Very polite! Very polite!'" She recalled. "He honors that."
