Have mercy! John Stamos stopped by E!’s new late-night talk show Busy Tonight and he was very open and candid with host Busy Philipps. He opened up about his journey to becoming a father at 55 years old, and he even dished about the super awkward moment he had while he and his wife, Caitlin McHugh, were trying to get pregnant with their first child.
“This is an absolutely true story and I’ve been waiting to tell this story…Trying to get pregnant and we had to do a thing, and we had to go to a fertility, ya know, place. And I had to go give a sperm sample…I can’t believe I’m finally getting to tell this story…And I went into this little room where they go, ‘Go in there…’ And they said, ‘If you need any stimulation or whatever there’s videos and there’s a TV here, just turn the thing.’ I turn the TV on…and it’s on ‘Fuller House’ and I’m like, if I’m going to masturbate to myself it’s going to be my old self, not the new one,” John told Busy.
As if that wasn’t super awkward enough, it was also the first time that John had seen the older episodes in a long time. “I haven’t seen it in twenty years,” he revealed.
John and his second wife tied the knot in back in February, while Caitlin was pregnant with the couple’s first child. Just two months later, they welcomed their son Billy and John opened up about why Billy’s name is so special and significant.
“My wife was so gracious to let me name him after my father, Bill. Billy,” John said. And it was my dad’s birthday yesterday, and you know he’s been gone a long time so just to have his energy back in the house and say his name, brings back all that, and it’s just the best time in my life.”
