"I was married at the time I was doing the show to my first husband," Loughlin, 49, told host Ali Wentworth on Tuesday, March 18. "Literally when I was getting divorced, he met Rebecca [Romijn]."

Indeed, Loughlin tied the knot with her first husband, Michael Burns, in 1989, just two years after the family series premiered. (The two later divorced in 1996.) Stamos, meanwhile, married model Romijn in 1998, but they split seven years later.

Since the Danny Tanner years, Loughlin remarried and has been with husband designer Mossimo Giannulli for nearly 17 years. But even though she's taken, the actress still has a close relationship with 50-year-old Stamos, along with the rest of the early '90s cast. Back in June 2013, Stamos even admitted that Loughlin was "the one that got away" during an interview with HuffPost Live.

"That was very nice of him to say that," Loughlin gushed to Wentworth. When further asked who was the "hottest" in the Full House crew, Loughlin didn't hesitate. "John," she quipped.
