As previously reported, Stamos, 54, popped the question at Disneyland. “I asked…she said yes! …And we lived happily ever after,” he captioned an illustration of the couple kissing at the Happiest Place on Earth on October 23.
The following day, Stamos opened up about wanting kids with McHugh, 32. “It’s been a long time and I’ve always been pretty vocal about wanting a family and wanting to be married, and everyone is like, ‘Why can’t you? You can do it.’ The truth is I just wasn’t the best me and I wasn’t going to attract someone like Caitlin. I had to work on myself and put in some time, and I know my mother would have been really happy with that, and this beauty just came into my life,” he told Extra. “It took time for me to really be the best person I could be.”
Last month, he added that becoming a dad has always been his plan. “It’s just taken me a lot longer than I anticipated. It would be a tragedy if I didn’t have children and I finally found the right woman — the perfect woman,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “I know my parents are smiling down. I know they would love her. She’s a gentle, kind, graceful soul who would be a good mother.”
Stamos and McHugh have been dating since last year. The actor was previously married to Rebecca Romijn from 1998 to 2005.
