Uncle Jesse is off the market: John Stamos announces engagement


John Stamos is to wed for a second time, after announcing his engagement to girlfriend Caitlin McHugh.

Stamos and McHugh started dating early last year, with the 54-year-old letting his relationship status slip during an interview on "The View" in March 2016.

Stamos was recalling a recent show he played with The Beach Boys, for whom he often drums, when he revealed he had tried to set up a video call with his new lady love while onstage so she could watch one particular performance via her cellphone.

"The other night, I grabbed my phone because there's this girl I'm dating..." he began. "She loves this song ['Disney Girls']. So I grabbed my phone and put it in front of (me) to shoot the whole thing. I thought I got away with it. And people were like, 'Who are you FaceTiming?'"

It was later revealed that the mystery woman was 31-year-old actress McHugh, with whom he starred in a "Law & Order: SVU" episode back in 2011.

Stamos' engagement news comes after he recently opened up to People magazine about his desire to settle down and have children.
