John Stamos took in Instagram Sunday to reveal he had gotten engaged to girlfriend Caitlin McHugh at Disneyland. The Fuller House star, 54, has been dating The Vampire Diaries actress, 31, for a year and a half.
Stamos tagged Disneyland as the place where he popped the question. The two have been spotted frequently at the California theme park.
Stamos posted an illustration to Instagram of him and McHugh in front of the Disney castle with fireworks lighting up the dark sky. He captioned it, “I asked … she said yes! … And we lived happily ever after.” The post has garnered 122,000 likes to date.
Stamos made a short film featuring romantic moments from animated Disney films, and ended it with Sebastian from The Little Mermaid encouraging the actor to “just ask the girl,” People reported.
McHugh had shared a photo of the happy couple walking down Disneyland’s Main Street on Oct. 5:
The two began dating in March 2016. “They started out as friends, and it developed into romance,” according to a source quoted by Page Six. “John falls for girls who are into music and are a bit of a tomboy.”
Stamos, best known for his role as Uncle Jesse in TV shows Full House and Fuller House, was married to Rebecca Romijn from 1998 to 2005. Romijn went on to marry Jerry O’Connell, and the couple now have twins. While Stamos and Romijn never had children, Stamos has expressed his desire to become a dad one day.
In 2015, the actor told Us Weekly, “My ovaries are rattling. Do men have ovaries? They’re jingling I can hear them jingling now.”
