John Stamos melts hearts talking about newborn son Billy — reveals plans for more kids

The world is a more colorful place for first-time father John Stamos! The Fuller House star admitted that “everything is greener and bluer” since welcoming his first child, son Billy, with wife Caitlin McHugh. Chatting on On Air with Ryan Seacrest on Thursday, April 19, the new dad, 54, opened up about getting engaged, married and pregnant within less than a year. “We just kind of crammed everything in because it’s been so great,” he said. “It’s so beautiful having a baby.”

John added, “People are probably sick of me saying I always wanted a kid but it just happened and I guess I was waiting for the perfect wife, which I have. Caitlin, she’s been so graceful through this whole thing.”


Caitlin, 31, and the singer, who tied the knot in February 2018, welcomed their baby boy, William Christopher Stamos, on April 10. “I named him after my father who was my hero,” John told Ryan Seacrest. “I hope I live up to what my dad did. … He was always bigger than life to me so I’m happy to honor him with our little Billy. I’m starting to cry right now, Ryan, I’m so emotional.”



The Full House alum also revealed that his wife’s labor was a quick one. He shared, “It was about 20 minutes. A little baby came out and he looked just like Don Rickles.” Since welcoming their first child, John admitted to Extra that he and his wife are already considering expanding their family. John confessed, “We’re already talking about it. Right now, she wants another one!”

I became a dad.” “When I look at you today, I am in awe,” John continued. “The compassion and the love and every value that you have… I feel so hopeful for my son.”
