He’s played the hunky father on some of our favorite TV shows and now he prepares for his biggest role yet, as a father off camera. John Stamos is having a baby!! The Full House star, 54, and his fiancée Caitlin, 31, shared the exciting news on Wednesday.
The news comes just weeks after the couple announced on social media that they were engaged. John popped the question at Disneyland and took to social media to break the news of his engagement. He posted an illustrated picture of a couple in front of a castle that resembled Cinderella’s. He wrote: “I asked…she said yes!…And we lived happily ever after with a diamond ring emoji.”
The longtime bachelor opened up how becoming a father has been a long time dream of his, he said: “I always wanted to be a dad. Clearly, I had to do some work on myself, first.” Time seems to be on the actor’s side, he doesn’t seem to age! He acknowledges his gifted genes but also admits they can be a curse and goes on to say: “I have a youthful thing. People say, Oh you look young. You’ll start believing you’re gonna live to be 150. And then you wake up and go, No, man, this is it. This is not a rehearsal.”
The heartthrob had resigned to the fact that real life fatherhood wasn’t in the cards for him until his girlfriend Caitlin found out she was expecting. John knew he wanted to marry the actress already but when he found out the baby news he wanted to make things official so he put a ring on her finger!
The model/actress shared how John reacted when he learned he was going to be a dad, “The look on John’s face when I told him we were pregnant was priceless. It was a look of a man who has wanted a family of his own but wasn’t sure it was going to happen for him.”
John is a natural at playing a father and we have no doubt he will be an extraordinary father to his very own. Congrats to the two of them!
