Sure, we’ve been crushing on Uncle Jesse since long before we were even old enough to date, but there’s always room for another hottie on our favorite show — and let’s face it, Netflix’s Fuller House is about to be our new obsession.
The powers that be behind the Fuller House sequel have gifted us with said hottie in the form of Kimmy Gibbler’s “passionate” ex-husband, Fernando, portrayed by actor Juan Pablo Di Pace, according to Deadline.
Side note: “The powers that be” just happen actually to be John Stamos, aka Uncle Jesse, who is producing the show. Passing the torch much?
Here are some things to know about Di Pace before you watch Fuller House‘s big debut.
