John Stamos has been one of TV’s biggest stars for decades, but that hasn’t stopped him from being notoriously private about his romantic life. Following his split from Rebecca Romijn in 2004 after six years of marriage, he remained aloof about his personal life, but that has all changed now that he is with Caitlin McHugh. The adorable couple may have a 23 year age gap, but they couldn’t be happier! Here are 10 things you might not know about John Stamos and Caitlin McHugh’s relationship:
10. How They Met
While the two have been very low-key since they began their relationship, John Stamos did reveal that the pair actually met years ago in 2011, but sparks didn’t immediately fly. They met while filming an episode of Law & Order: SVU in which Stamos guest-starred as Ken Turner. “I played a guy who was so egotistical that he thought he should spread his progeny, so he had like 60 kids or something. 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,” Stamos recalled. “That was a long time ago. She was in another relationship. And we just met back up again. Her roommate was on an episode of Fuller House, and so she was in the audience. I walked in, I went, ‘Hey, are you stalking me?’ She was like, ‘No.’ … That’s why I love her. She’s like, ‘What? No. I haven’t thought of you twice.’” Although she didn’t think of him twice then, it didn’t take long before a relationship sparked and they fell quickly in love.
