Justin Bieber's mom Patti Mallette has a new book out called Nowhere But Up: The Story of Justin Bieber's Mom. To promote it, she's been taking over for her son on the talk show circuit.

Appearing on The Ellen Show, Ellen had one very important questions for Patti--what does she really think of Justin's relationship with Selena Gomez?

Her response? Two thumbs up!

"How can you not like her? She's so sweet," she said. "She's good for him and they're great together!"

You know the relationship would never have lasted this long without the seal of approval from mom!

Patti also told Ellen that being a single mom, she promised Justin she wouldn't date until he turned 18.

And well, now that Justin has hit that milestone she's slowly getting back out there! Maybe we'll soon see her on double dates with Justin and Selena?
