Can you imagine marrying your high school sweetheart while still in high school? Better yet, can you imagine having mom's blessing to do so?!

Yeah, we thought not. Too bad your mom's not Kirstie Alley.

The 59-year-old former Cheers star can't wait to toast the nuptials of her 17-year-old son, True Stevenson, and his girlfriend of one year.

"I feel good because they're really in love," she tells Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday. "True's got a level head. He's a good guy. He's very monogamous and he's very sweet with her."

The Big Life star goes on to explain when she made a similar mistake romantic gesture.

"I was married when I was just 19 years old and that didn't work," she says. "Then I was married when I was 30 years old and that's when everyone said you should get married and that didn't work. So I don't think I'm an expert on the subject."

Expert or not, here comes her sage wisdom.

"I think if somebody's in love and wants to be married then let them be in love and get married," she declares.

True's father, actor Parker Stevenson, was Kirstie's husband for 14 years, from 1983 to 1997. The pair adopted True and his sister, Lillie, 15, during that time.

As for herself, Kirstie admits she's looking for love—not marriage—and insists she's no cougar.
