Uncle Jesse isn’t the only one settling down! Bob Saget is engaged to Kelly Rizzo. The news comes just weeks after his Fuller House co-star John Stamos popped the question to girlfriend Caitlin McHugh.
Saget, 61, posted a photo celebrating the engagement with friends, including talent manager George Shapiro. “Love the people in this picture. The most loving and legendary @George_Shapiro Katie Killean & of course my gal Kelly. In case you’re wondering, we were celebrating our engagement — and I know George and I will be very happy together,” he joked.
Kelly, who is 23 years Saget’s junior, also shared the happy news. “Who needs pearls??? Enjoying my favorite food with my new favorite accessory,” she posted on Instagram.
Stamos’s fiancée — who is 22 years his junior — wished the couple congratulations. “Congrats again! Can’t wait for us to celebrate you two!” McHugh, a model, wrote.
The Eat Travel Rock TV host, 38, and Saget met in 2015 through mutual friends. “I don’t really see him as Danny Tanner,” the Chicago native told Michigan Ave magazine, referring to his character on Full House and Netflix’s Fuller House. “To me he’s just Bobby, my love.”
Saget, who was married to Sherri Kramer from 1982 to 1997, never thought he would settle down after his divorce. “I didn’t think I’d have a relationship again,” he told Closer. “I was kind of in that ‘just work, make people happy, and take care of your kids until they’re 90’ mindset.”
The actor has three daughters with his ex-wife, and he told the magazine they “love” Rizzo. “She’s a remarkable person, and she’s really talented,” he gushed.
