John Stamos has revealed that he and fiancée Caitlin McHugh are expecting their first child together.
Speaking with People, the 54-year-old actor -- who became everyone's favorite uncle with his role on the hit 1990s sitcom Full House -- confirmed the happy news.
"We have the same morals and the same values, that all clicked nicely," he said. "So we said, 'Oh, well, maybe we should have a family.'"
"[Caitlin said,] 'Maybe we should have a kid [before we get married],' and I said, 'Why?'" he continued. "[Caitlin responded,] 'Because you're old.'"
Caitlin, 31, went on to describe the look on her husband-to-be's face upon learning of their beautiful baby news.
"The look on John's face when I told him we were pregnant was priceless," she told the outlet. "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!"
The Scream Queens star admitted that he long felt as though something were missing from his life.
"I always wanted to be a dad. Clearly I had to do some work on myself, first," he told People. "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 couple announced their engagement in October, after John proposed to his then-girlfriend of two years at their favourite place: Disneyland.
"John proposed to his girlfriend Caitlin McHugh on Sunday afternoon at Disneyland," the actor's' rep told E! News. "He cut together a film of some of the most romantic moments in Disney and Pixar animation. The film concluded with Sebastian from The Little Mermaid encouraging John to 'Just ask the girl.' Caitlin said yes, then John whisked her to 21 Royal where they shared the news and celebrated with their families."
Confirming the engagement in an adorable Instagram post, the much-loved actor shared an illustration of himself and his soon-to-be wife in front of the theme park's Sleeping Beauty Castle.
"I asked...she said yes! ...And we lived happily ever after," he captioned the pic.
Caitlin has appeared on The Vampire Diaries, NCIS: Los Angeles and also starred in the short film, Ingenue-ish, which she co-wrote with John this year.
Speaking with Entertainment Tonight back in January, Caitlin -- opened up about their relationship.
"We like to keep our lives private because we've seen what relationships in the public eye can be like and we just like our privacy," she said. "We don't want the commentary from the masses about what our relationship is or should be."
She added: "We're very happy together and we hope to be so for a long time."
Congratulations again to the happy couple!
