John Stamos couldn't hold back tears while talking about his son on 'Live with Kelly and Ryan'
John Stamos, the actor and singer best known for “General Hospital,” went to “Live with Kelly and Ryan” in mid-October to talk about his son, and he couldn’t hold back tears.
As soon as the hosts congratulated him on his marriage and baby, John started getting a little emotional. It wasn’t until the photos showing the actor holding his baby in a pool were displayed that John started crying.
Kelly began talking about John’s electric smile that got even better whenever he holds his son, but she couldn’t finish the idea because she noticed the man was crying.
WHY WAS HE CRYING?
John pointed out that he missed Billy, named after his father, and that it was the longest time he had been away from him. Kelly apologized for making him cry and even gave him a couple of napkins.
CHANGING THE CONVERSATION
The actor quickly changed the direction of the conversation asking Kelly about her children and how did she “keep them alive.” After that, the host made a really funny yet weird comparison between children and pancakes.
“The first one is the hardest. The first child is the first pancake. Think about the first pancake on the griddle; burned on one side and raw on the other.”
John, 55, became a father for the very first time this year. He and his wife, Caitlin McHugh, 32, welcomed Billy on April 15, and the couple couldn’t be happier about it.
During the show, John revealed that he and his wife were already trying to have a second one. He said that his wife teased him saying that it needed to be done quickly because he was “old.”
BILLY IS NOT READY FOR A SIBLING
The actor pointed out that Billy has “blocked” some of the efforts as he would not go to sleep or suddenly wake up right before the couple could actually do something.
Billy even has a toy elephant that he squeezes to distract his parents that plays the song, “Do your ears hang low?” which ruins the atmosphere.
GOING TO JIMMY KIMMEL
It was not the first time that John talked about Billy on a TV show as he went to the “Jimmy Kimmel Show” for a Halloween special wherein he even sat in front of the cameras with the baby on his lap.
Jimmy, who also has a son named Billy, couldn’t stop gushing about the boy, saying that he was the cutest baby he had ever seen and that the couple should definitely make more.
For the 70’s retro costume theme, Jimmy dressed up as Gabe Kotter from the show “Welcome Back, Kotter,” and John chose a costume of student Vinnie Barbarino, another character of that show.
Billy’s costume was the best one, though, as he was wearing a red and silver jumpsuit resembling Robin Williams’ character Mork from Ork of the show “Mork & Mindy.”
