Insert 'Fuller House' joke.

John Stamos is about to become a father. 

The actor, 54, is expecting his first child with fiancee Caitlin McHugh, 31, People reports. They have been dating since 2015 and announced their engagement in October. 

Stamos, who plays a beloved bad boy turned father figure on Netflix's Full House spinoff, Fuller House, opened up about his decision to start a family with McHugh. “We have the same morals and the same values, that all clicked nicely," he told People. "So we said, ‘Oh, well, maybe we should have a family.'"

He added that it was McHugh's idea that they start a family before they get married, because, in her words, "you're old." 

Stamos added that he didn't think fatherhood would happen to him, revealing he would often tell friends "that ship has sailed." Now that it's finally in the cards, he says, “I’ll be a fun dad. I’ve been practicing for a long time. I’ve done every shtick you can do with a baby on TV...all the bits and jokes and diaper gags. I’ll probably just do all that stuff.”
