John Stamos is a dad!

On Sunday, April 15, 2018, the Fuller House star took to Instagram to announce that he and wife Caitlin McHugh have welcomed their first child together, a baby boy named Billy.

“From now on, the best part of me will always be my wife and my son,” the proud dad captioned a sweet snapshot of his little bundle of joy lying on his chest and holding his ring finger. “Welcome Billy Stamos (named after my father) .”

Earlier this month, Stamos dished on becoming a dad with Entertainment Tonight, saying, “I’ve waited my whole life for this. I’m already so emotional and so excited…I’ve been dreaming about our baby. I mean, I am really excited.”

“I don’t know what I would do if I wasn’t having a baby right now,” he admitted. “I’ve done everything anyone could ever…I’ve had the most beautiful blessed life on the planet, and the most honest real thing I could do, I haven’t done.”

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Stamos, 54, and McHugh, 32, revealed that they were expecting their first child together in December 2017. “It would be a tragedy if I didn’t have children and I finally found the right woman — the perfect woman,” the former Full House star said during an interview with ET just before making the exciting announcement. “I know my parents are smiling down. I know they would love her. She’s a gentle, kind, graceful soul who would be a good mother.”

Since then, Stamos has been counting down the days to on social media. “This is the longest 9 months of my life! 4 fatherhood,” the dad-to-be wrote on Instagram in late March, captioning a throwback photo of himself from his Full House days, in which he wore a t-shirt that said, “Bun in the Oven.”

The cute pair began dating in early 2016, before tying the knot following a five-month engagement in February 2018. The Scream Queens star had proposed at Disneyland in late October 2017, where he put together a montage of romantic Disney movie moments before popping the question.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
