On Thursday, actor John Stamos made an appearance on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” to talk about his new Lifetime movie. At one point, co-host Kelly Ripa mentioned his son.


The actor immediately started to tear up and confessed that he missed his boy. He then went on to explain how clever the little boy had become.

John Stamos, 55, became a father for the very first time this year. He and his wife, Caitlin McHugh, 32, welcomed William “Billy” Christopher six months ago.

While showing pictures of the infant, “Live with Kelly and Ryan” co-host Kelly Ripa observed:

“You know, you have one of these electric smiles, John, but your smile holding your baby is even more — oh look, now you’re crying!”

He elaborated:

“This is the longest I’ve been away from him. I’ve been waiting my whole life for — you know, for — sorry.”


Ripa handed him a box of tissues and apologized for getting him emotional. The new father then admitted: “I’m happy, I’m so happy.”


The actor quickly changed the subject to Ripa's three children. The co-host joked that her children were "past that age" and made her cry "for different reasons."


Stamos revealed that he and his wife were already trying for their second baby. His wife teased that they needed to do it sooner because he was “old.”


However, the efforts have been blocked by little Billy. The actor shared that when his wife was ovulating and the baby was sleeping she would call him so he could come home and they could try.


But Billy would be wide awake and would start crying as soon as he’s left alone. The baby even has a toy elephant that he squeezes to distract his parents that plays the song “Do your ears hang low?”


Stamos shared in the past that he wouldn’t upload images of his son anymore because of dad-shaming:

“I've only put him on [social media] barely once, on mine, and I got so baby shamed about how I was holding him or whatever I said, 'That's it!'"

He revealed that he and his wife would wait until Billy was "old enough to decide" to decide what he wants to share on social media.
