John Stamos is best known for playing Jesse Katsopolis on , where he’s the adoring father of his twin sons Nicky and Alex. But in real life, Stamos doesn’t have any children of his own. That’s about to change real soon, and the television actor couldn’t be more excited about it.
At the premiere of , the new comedy starring and directed by his fellow star Bob Saget, John Stamos talked to Entertainment Tonight about the exciting adventure into fatherhood that awaits him with his wife, Caitlin McHugh. He gushed that it’s something he always wanted.
I’ve waited my whole life for this. I just can’t. I’m already so emotional and so excited… I’ve been dreaming about our baby. I mean, I am really excited.
Now that John Stamos has made his name as an actor, he’s looking forward to advancing into the next stage of his life. It was in late 2017 that John Stamos announced that he was going to become a father for the first time. In his announcement, the TV actor posted a lovely tribute to his own father.
I don’t know what I would do if I wasn’t having a baby right now. Like, I’ve done everything anyone could ever… I’ve had the most beautiful blessed life on the planet, and the most honest real thing I could do I haven’t done.
While it’s rare for a 54-year-old like John Stamos to jump into fatherhood at this stage in the game, at least he’s going all in. The main reason he feels so confident about this newest endeavor is thanks to Caitlin McHugh. The couple was hitched in February after Stamos proposed in Disneyland.
She’s so beautiful pregnant. She’s so magical. She is the most graceful person I’ve ever met in my life, and she’s handling pregnancy like a champ. Every day I say, ‘You’re doing so great, you’re doing so great.’ Just every day I’m with her I just realize, first of all, how lucky I am, but what a special human she is. She’s magical. She floats into a room. I’ve never heard her say a bad word about anybody.
We’re glad to see John Stamos so excited about his first trek into fatherhood. His excitement for Caitlin McHugh’s new baby is practically contagious.
