Harrison Ford’s chef son, Ben Ford, is delighted that his dad finally tied the knot with longtime girlfriend Calista Flockhart – and amused by the way they did it.
“Those crazy kids went off and eloped!” Ford told PEOPLE on Wednesday while manning the charcoal grill for a clam bake at Ford’s Filling Station, the restaurant he runs in Culver City, Calif. “I think it is wonderful that they finally made it legit. It is really terrific news.”
He added: “I’m so happy for them.”
