John Stamos is a Hollywood actor who is beloved by fans all over the globe. Though he has had a hugely successful television career on such legendary shows as “Full House,” there was one thing that has always been missing from his life.
Last year, Stamos opened up about how he wanted to be a father, though he is now 54 years-old.
“I always wanted to be a dad… People say, ‘Oh, you look young.’ You start believing you’re gonna live to be 150,” he said. “And then you wake up and go, ‘No, man, this is it. This is not a rehearsal.’”
However, this year, Stamos got his wish, as he has welcomed a baby boy with his wife Caitlin McHugh!
“From now on, the best part of me will always be my wife [Caitlin McHugh] and my son,” Stamos wrote on Instagram.
Stamos had a particularly close relationship with his father and mother, who died in 2001 and 2014 respectively, and he admitted that it’s difficult for him that they are not around to meet his son.
“It kills me that my parents aren’t here to be part of this, but I know it probably wouldn’t be happening if they weren’t up there,” he said. “You know how you put your father on a pedestal, and he’s a superhero, and then as you grow older, you go, ‘Ah, he’s just a man?’ I never got to that point. Till the day he died, he was bigger than life to me.”
This is why Stamos has decided to name his son after his father! The little boy is named Billy, which is what the actor’s late father was named.
McHugh is confident that Stamos will be an amazing father to their son.
“The look on John’s face when I told him we were pregnant was priceless,” she said. “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!”
We’re so happy for John Stamos and his little family! God bless you all!
