John Stamos is a first-time father, after wife Caitlin McHugh gave birth to a baby boy.
The Fuller House actor took to Instagram on Sunday (15Apr18) to reveal the happy news, sharing a stunning black and white shot of the newborn enjoying skin-to-skin contact with his father.
“From now on, the best part of me will always be my wife and my son. Welcome Billy Stamos (named after my father) #NotJustanUncleAnymore #Overjoyed,” he wrote alongside the picture.
The pair’s arrival comes after they tied the knot in Studio City, California in February. They announced the pregnancy to People magazine, and explained that while they’d previously discussed starting a family, the timing now felt right and things fell into place.
“We have the same morals and the same values, that all clicked nicely. So we said, ‘Oh, well, maybe we should have a family,’” the actor beamed.
“(Caitlin suggested,)‘Maybe we should have a kid (before we get married)’ and I said, ‘Why?’”
To which Caitlin cheekily responded: “Because you’re old.”
“The look on John’s face when I told him we were pregnant was priceless,” smiled Caitlin. “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!”
John and Caitlin became engaged in October (17), with the 54-year-old actor sharing the news with a sweet drawing on Instagram of the couple standing in front of Cinderella’s castle in Disneyland. They began dating in early 2016, and the relationship became public knowledge when John let it slip during an appearance on U.S. chat show The View in March, 2016.
This is John’s second marriage – he was previously wed to actress Rebecca Romijn from 1998 to 2005. The model-turned-actress is now married to another actor, Jerry O’Connell.
