It seems John Stamos is enjoying being a dad more than anything. He and his wife, Caitlin McHugh, previously welcomed their baby son, Billy, in April 2018 — and he said "it's been beautiful" ever since.
"Every second you pray that you can keep the kid alive. Every day is different, time has become very elusive, stuff just goes by so fast. It’s just beautiful. I’ve cried most days; I just stare at him," he told People in a new interview. "I thought it was beyond me to have a kid and a great wife, but it’s given me a reason to live. Life is in session now." Have you ever heard anything sweeter?
The Full House star is gearing up to celebrate his first Father's Day on Sunday, June 17. His plans for the day? Being emotional! "I know I’ll be crying a lot," he shared. "I’ve been writing Billy a letter that I’m putting away for him to read when he’s 18. I’ll probably continue writing that, and I’ll certainly try to honor my father."
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly before he became a dad, the actor admitted he had "baby fever" when he was playing a father and grandfather on his old show, Grandfathered. "I want to have a wife first, but I’m thinking really seriously about [the baby] situation right now. I think I really should be a dad at some point. I’ve gotta do something about this soon!" John said in 2015. "I think when I’ve been in real love, I’ve been my happiest and most complete, personally. And the baby fever kind of comes and goes." We bet he now has baby fever for No. 2!

Caitlin does, at least. When asked when she wants to have more kids in a recent interview, she replied, "as soon as I can!" The mom-of-one continued, "Right now, Billy is extremely spoiled and we need to share the love, he's gotta share some of those toys and all the things that have been given to him. He needs [siblings] to keep him grounded. If he's the only one, he'll get way too much love because there hasn't been a child on either side of our family in quite some time." Here's hoping the Stamos family continues to expand!
