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.

Well, I had an illuminating 15 min, 43 sec FaceTime chat with my new friend, Iris. We laughed we cried, then we laughed again. We covered it all and hopefully she'll take me up on my invite to visit the #FullerHouse set this summer. Thanks to her sweet mom, @RachLHouston XO
Major congrats to Stamos and McHugh — and Iris for scoring the FaceTime of the century.
