Love Story Of John Stamos And Caitlin McHugh Can Make Even The Coldest Heart Melt

About 5 years ago, famous celebrity bachelor John Stamos realized he doesn't want to be single in his fifties. The silver fox was ready to settle down, and the love of his life came knocking very quickly.
Today, Stamos is happily married to actress Caitlin McHugh, who recently gave birth to their first son Billy. The couple's love story shows all signs of them being meant to be, so how did it all came to be?
John and Caitlin first met on the set of Law & Order: SVU in 2011. The two actors were episode partners, and the premise is hilarious in hindsight. As Stamos told in an interview with PEOPLE:
I played a guy who was so egotistical that he thought he should spread his progeny, so he had like 60 kids or something...And Caitlin, ironically, was one of the girls that I was trying to fool and have a baby with.
4 years later, Stamos ran into Caitlin McHugh, when she visited the filming of his show Fuller House. The actor joked about McHugh stalking him, deep inside hoping for that to be true. That was the moment John realized he wants to take matters into his own hands and make their next encounter intentional.
The couple started dating, while Stamos' Fuller House co-stars kept hinting at him that it was time to start a family. In 2016, Candace Cameron Bure told PEOPLE:
He’s the best with little babies and kids. So, he should have kids of his own, but if not, there’s plenty of TV children to go around.
Stamos always explained that he wanted to have children but only with the right woman. Little did everyone know, she was already in his life.
In October of 2017, John organized probably the most magical proposal ever. He took Caitlin McHugh to Disneyland, which is her favorite place, and put together a video of the sweetest moments from Disney and Pixar animated movies.
Stamos popped the question, when video switched to Sebastian from The Little Mermaid saying "just ask the girl". Caitlin McHugh's answer was an instant yes.
Sharing their life together forever
Two months after the engagement, John announced that they're expecting a baby. At that point, he was the happiest man on Earth: he finally found the perfect woman and had a child on the way.
The lovebirds got married in February earlier this year, and on April 15, they welcomed their baby boy, Billy, named after Stamos' father.
But why stop at one kid? Caitlin McHugh told ET that they're planning on giving little Billy siblings very soon.
My first Father’s Day means that I don’t have to hand a kid back to the parents when someone yells cut. It means when people ask me if I'm a father, I don't have to use the goofy line, “No, but I play one on TV” My first Father’s Day means that from this day forward— I will start to look my age (and older) Most importantly, it means that for the rest of my life, I’ll always be known as someone’s dad. And that’s all I ever wanted. Happy Father’s day.
John Stamos is no longer a bachelor, and we can't be happier for him.
