Late actor Bob Saget portrayed one of sitcom’s most beloved TV dads on both Full House and the series’ Fuller House revival, but off-screen, he was the father of three daughters. Though he loved playing the dad of three Danny Tanner, nothing compared to raising his own children, Aubrey, Lara and Jennifer, in real life.
“They are the light of my life. I am a fortunate man in that all three of my daughters are exceptional,” he gushed to People in January 2016. “[They are] very high beings, very smart people, very wonderful and very brilliant, very beautiful.”
The iconic comedian shared his adult kids with his first wife, Sherri Kramer. Bob and the screenwriter wed in 1982 and welcomed their first kid, Aubrey, five years later in 1987. Their second, Lara, was born in 1989, followed by their youngest child, Jennifer, in 1992.
Bob and Sherri eventually split after 15 years of marriage in 1997, but their divorce didn’t stop the How I Met Your Mother alum from sharing a great relationship with his daughters. Bob once said there were no ifs, and or butts about being a dedicated dad because having children was the “best thing” he had ever experienced.
“The highest thing in my whole life is my daughters,” the America’s Funniest Home Videos star told Parade in 2009. “I worship them! If everything in my life is raised to the level of how great they are, then that would be a great thing to have achieved.”
Though Bob would do just about anything for his kids, he revealed he “forbid” Aubrey, Lara and Jennifer from watching Full House when they were growing up. However, he told Access Hollywood the series was “forbidden” from their household for good reason.
“It was a kids’ show. It was a lovely, family kids’ show, but I’d done it all day,” Bob explained in April 2014. “Would you go home and watch a kids’ show after you did it all morning?”
Aubrey, Lara and Jennifer have since grown up, and the Grammy nominee moved on romantically. He got married to his second spouse, Kelly Rizzo, in 2018. While exclusively chatting with Closer Weekly in November 2017, Bob said he was elated to have all the pieces of his life coming together.
“I am in a great relationship… and I am surrounded by people I really care about,” he marveled over his blonde beauty and kids. “What more could I ask for?”
Unfortunately, Bob died unexpectedly on January 9, 2022, in Florida at age 65. “Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call about an unresponsive man in a hotel room,” the Orange County Sheriff’s Office tweeted. “The man was identified as Robert Saget & pronounced deceased on scene. Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case.”
He is survived by his daughters Aubrey, Lara and Jennifer, and wife Kelly.
