Have mercy! Fuller House star John Stamos is finally going to be a dad.
The actor recently revealed that he and his fiancée, Caitlin McHugh, are expecting their first child together.
This is the first baby for both Caitlin and John, making John a first-time father at age 54. They haven’t revealed the baby’s sex.
The actor disclosed his good news to People in a cover story interview. He explained that he and his bride-to-be had “talked about” having kids in the past and that everything just fell into place. Caitlin revealed to John that she was pregnant before he proposed to her.
“We have the same morals and the same values — that all clicked nicely.
So we said, ‘Oh, well, maybe we should have a family,'” said the Full House star. Caitlin had suggested they have a baby before getting married, joking that her suggestion was because John is old.
“I’ll be a fun dad. I’ve been practicing for a long time,” he said. “I’ve done every schtick you can do with a baby on TV … all the bits and jokes and diaper gags. I’ll probably just do all that stuff.” Caitlin agreed that her fiancé would be “an amazing father.”
This news isn’t too much of a surprise for longtime fans of “Uncle Jesse.” Earlier this year, he told Entertainment Tonight that he wanted to have kids and thought it would be a “tragedy” if he and Caitlin never became parents:
“I hope [to have kids]. That’s always been my plan. It’s just taken me a lot longer than I anticipated. It would be a tragedy if I didn’t have children, I think, and I finally found the right woman — the perfect woman. I know my parents are smiling down. I know they would love her. She’s a gentle, kind, graceful soul who would be a good mother.”
John proposed to Caitlin at Disneyland, after almost two years of dating, and shared the good news with fans back in October.
