The newborn's name has the sweetest meaning

Uncle Jesse has leveled up — to fatherhood. Full House actor John Stamos and his wife, model Caitlin McHugh, have welcomed their first child, a son.

On Sunday evening, Stamos posted a swoonworthy black-and-white Instagram photo with the explanation behind his new son's name.

Stamos wrote, "From now on, the best part of me will always be my wife and my son. Welcome Billy Stamos (named after my father)  #NotJustanUncleAnymore#Overjoyed." Oh, John. My crush on you started decades ago when you were Blackie on General Hospital. How do you expect me to get over you when you post things like that?

McHugh — who's appeared in The Vampire Diaries and in Switched at Birth — got engaged to Stamos at Disneyland in October. She and Stamos married in a private ceremony on Feb. 3. She's obviously as smitten with Stamos as he is with her judging from her Valentine's Day Instagram post of the pair kissing.

But I know I'm not the only one still nursing a crush on Stamos. One little girl named Iris recently grabbed the actor's attention — and his heart — when her mom, Rachael Houston, posted an Instagram video of her daughter sobbing because she wanted Uncle Jesse from Fuller House to come over.

"I want Uncle Jesse," Iris bawled.

"From the show?" her mom inquires gently.

"Yeah," Iris manages to say in between gulping sobs.

We are all Iris. The best part? Stamos FaceTimed with his tiniest, most fervent fan for 15 minutes. I mean, John, you're killing us — and you've proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are going to be the best dad ever.

Major congrats to Stamos and McHugh — and Iris for scoring the FaceTime of the century.
