Within the next decade, Stamos gained leading roles in the shows You Again? and – most importantly – Full House. Meanwhile, a later role in ER from 2005 to 2009 helped him gain a whole new generation of fans. But despite his success on the screen, the star was always missing something from his life.
Long considered one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors, Stamos never seemed to have much luck in love. Yet his string of romances – including a failed marriage to Rebecca Romijn – never killed his dreams of something more. “If I died and didn’t have any children, I would feel like… I’ve accomplished nothing,” he confessed to People in 2009.
But after seemingly spending years in the romantic wilderness, in 2016 the star gave hints that he’d finally found someone special. During an appearance on The View in March of that year, Stamos revealed that he was dating again. And a few weeks later, People magazine announced that his mystery woman was actress Caitlin McHugh.
