How did John Stamos and Caitlin McHugh meet?
Stamos and McHugh have a fascinating meet-cute story. The couple first met in 2015 on the set of Law and Order: SVU. “I played a guy who was so egotistical that he thought he should spread his progeny, so he had like 60 kids or something,” the actor told People. “He was poking holes in condoms and stuff. And Caitlin, ironically, was one of the girls that I was trying to fool and have a baby with.”
At the time, McHugh was in a relationship. But the pair later crossed paths when McHugh’s roommate had a guest-starring role on Fuller House, and McHugh was in the audience.
“I walked in, I went, ‘Hey, are you stalking me?’ She was like, ‘No …’ That’s why I love her,” the General Hospital star said. “She’s like, ‘What? No. I haven’t thought of you twice.’”
From there, the pair began dating, eventually getting engaged in October 2017 at Disneyland. “He put together some of the most romantic moments from Disney and Pixar animation [in a video],” Good Morning America reported. “And then he ended it with Sebastian from The Little Mermaid saying, ‘Just ask the girl’ to John.”
The duo tied the knot in Feb. 2018 and welcomed their son, William (Billy) Christopher Stamos, a few months later.
