What Is Bob Saget’s Wife’s Age? Kelly Rizzo Was Hesitant About Dating the ‘Full House’ Star
The hit series Full House made actor Bob Saget famous. His character’s widowed before the show begins and brings in his best friend and brother-in-law to help him raise his daughters. In real life, Saget’s been married twice. Who is Bob Saget’s wife currently, and what is her age?
Bob Saget’s wife is Kelly Rizzo
Saget has married twice in his life. The first time was to Sherri Kramer, who he married before Full House began, and he became the household name he is today. With Kramer, Saget has three daughters, Aubrey, Jennifer, and Lara. The couple divorced in 1997, shortly after Full House ended.
Saget remarried in 2018. “I didn’t think I’d have a relationship again,” Saget told Closer Weekly. “I was kind of in that ‘just work, make people happy and take care of your kids until they’re 90’ mindset.” However, after meeting Kelly Rizzo in 2015, all of that changed.
“My daughters love her!” Saget continued of his then-fiance’s relationship with his family. “She’s a remarkable person, and she’s really talented. She’s got her own website and streaming series called Eat Travel Rock.” Bob Saget’s wife Kelly Rizzo turned 41 in 2020, making her 23 years younger than him.
How Saget and Rizzo met
In February 2021, Rizzo answered fan questions on TikTok. One person asked how she and Saget first met. It turns out it’s a digital love story: He DM’d her on Instagram. “I think Bob was looking for a good midwestern gal. A Chicago gal, like myself,” began Rizzo.
Saget “did some due diligence,” she continued, contacting someone who knew her and assured him she was nice (and not “a b*tch” as he had worried). “His fiance reached out to me and said, ‘Bob Saget’s gonna DM you.’ And I was like, ‘Uh, I don’t know about that,'” said Rizzo of her reaction.
However, Saget won her over with his proposal. “He said, ‘Hey, want to come to a show of mine and then go out for some burgers and lobsters?’ And then I was like, ‘OK, we can be friends,'” said Rizzo. Soon after, she began to feel strong feelings for him. “Then we got married. And now it’s been five years,” she finished of their journey to wedded bliss.

One of Saget’s Full House characters’ main attributes is his cleanliness, to the point of obsessiveness. While Saget worked to distance himself from that wholesome persona, amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, he joked he had “become Danny Tanner” due to his excessive sanitizing. Rizzo confirmed this, saying, “Yes, our house is very clean.”
However, as Bob Saget’s wife, she did want to clear up one common misconception. Despite his stand-up comedy background, he doesn’t spend all of his time cracking jokes. “No, being married to a comedian does not mean everything is always funny,” Rizzo clarified for her audience.
