John Stamos and wife welcome baby boy

Adjust Comment Print

Uncle Jesse is officially a dad now.

The actor announced his good news on Instagram on Sunday with a sweet photo of his newborn son, Billy, resting on his chest. "Welcome Billy Stamos (named after my father) #NotJustanUncleAnymore #Overjoyed", he wrote alongside the picture. The 32-year-old McHugh posted the first public photo of her baby bump on Instagram in January. He and model and actress Caitlin McHugh tied the knot in February of this year.

"From now on, the best part of me will always be my wife and my son", Stamos wrote.

The "hncle" part of his post was obviously a joke about his time as Uncle Jesse on his hit show "Full House". 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.

The Full House alum has been vocal in the past about his lifelong desire to be a father. "I'll probably just do all that stuff". "So I called her parents to ask, and it was like, 'You better!'"

"The look on John's face when I told him we were pregnant was priceless", smiled Caitlin.

This is the second marriage for John, who was married to Rebecca Romijn from 1998 to 2005. "People would say, 'You should have a child.' I was like, 'That ship has sailed, '" he admitted at the time.
