Uncle Joey's getting married! Dave Coulier, who played Joey Gladstone on the beloved 1980s and '90s sitcom Full House, is engaged to photographer/producer Melissa Bring, the actor tells Us Weekly exclusively.

"Melissa has been my best friend since I met her nine years ago," Coulier, 54, gushes to Us. "I feel like the luckiest man on the planet. I get to marry my best friend, and she doesn't mind that I have a really bad gas problem." (As Uncle Joey might say, "Cut it out!")

The comedian and his fiancee plan to tie the knot this July in a wedding in beautiful Montana. There's no word yet on which of his Full House costars will be in attendance, but he and pals John Stamos and Bob Saget have remained close over the years, and reunited as recently as January for an appearance on Jimmy Fallon's late-night show.

Incidentally, Coulier (whose exes include Alanis Morissette) isn't the only Full House star planning a wedding. Series alum Mary-Kate Olsen—who, along with twin sister Ashley Olsen, played little Michelle Tanner—is engaged to marry Olivier Sarkozy. The former child star, 27, accepted a proposal (and a huge diamond ring) from Sarkozy, 44, earlier this year.
