Uncle Jesse’s house is getting fuller!
2017 has been a great year for John Stamos. Not only does que continues to enjoy the success of his series “Fuller House” with Netflix, but he’s also engaged to girlfriend Caitlin McHugh. And now, the forever Uncle Jesse has confirmed that the pair is expecting a child together—the actor’s first.
“I’ll be a fun dad. I’ve been practicing for a long time,” Stamos told People magazine.
Apparently, the idea of having their own family was already in the cards for Stamos, 54, and Caitlin,31, who, due to their circumstances, preferred not to wait until they tied the knot.
“[Caitlin said,] ‘Maybe we should have a kid [before we get married],’ and I said, ‘Why?’” Stamos said. “’Because you’re old,’” McHugh answered.
The couple also opened up about the moment when Stamos learned that he’ll finally (and in real life) would become a dad.
“The look on John’s face when I told him we were pregnant was priceless,” she told the magazine. “It was the look of a man who has wanted a family of his own but wasn’t sure it was going to happen for him. Now it is!”
Once McHugh revealed to Stamos that she was expecting, the actor sprang into action.
“The [pregnancy] happened. Then I said, I better have a ring on her finger because it’s the right thing to do, and I wanted to marry her anyway,” he explained. “So I called her parents to ask, and it was like, ‘You better!’”
Stamos popped the question in as part of an elaborate engagement at Disneyland on October 22 after a little less than two years of dating.
“We have the same morals and the same values, that all clicked nicely,” Stamos said of his relationship.
Congratulations to the parents-to-be!
