Lara Melanie Saget is the daughter of the late American stand-up comedian, actor, and television host, Bob Saget, who passed away in 2022. Here is a look into the life of his second daughter.
Bob Saget started his career as a stand-up comic before landing minor roles in television and film. He got his big break on "The Morning Program" before joining "Full House" as Danny Tanner — a part that made him one of television's most famous dads.
On May 16, 1982, he married his high school sweetheart, screenwriter and author Sherri Kramer. They were together for 15 years before finalizing their divorce on November 10, 1997.

The couple had three children who are now all adults. On February 15, 1987, they welcomed their first daughter Aubrey, an accomplished artist. Her work has been featured in many exhibits and galleries, and she is the co-founder of Studio200.
On October 16, 1989, they welcomed their second daughter, Lara Melanie, an artist. The couple had their youngest daughter, Jennifer Belle, on November 18, 1992, and she prefers to stay out of the spotlight.

LARA MELANIE SAGET PAYS TRIBUTE TO HER LATE FATHER, BOB SAGET
On June 19, 2022, Lara took to her Instagram to celebrate Father's Day as she shared an old image of her and Bob. In her caption, she wrote:
"My dad wasn't just my dad, he was my best friend. He wore his heart. He didn't hide it; he wasn't afraid of love. My dad simply wanted to share laughter and love with this world. I have noticed how scary it can be to love that big, to open so fully."
She revealed that her father taught her that love was infinite despite life's pain and hardships. In memory of him, Lara said she would always choose love just like Bob did.
Lara, who had previously revealed that Bob loved with everything he had despite being scared, said she knew it was her responsibility to give herself love and share it by living in love.
Before Bob unexpectedly died on January 9, 2022, at 65, he was known for being a fierce champion of other comedians. In the 1990s, he was the king of television and hosted "America's Funniest Home Videos" for most of the decade.
His "Full House" role gave him the nickname "America's Dad." However, despite his fame and successful career, his most important role was being a father to his three daughters.
Throughout his life, he publicly stated that his children were essential to his existence. In January 2016, while speaking about his daughters, he said:
"They are the light of my life. I am a fortunate man in that all three of my daughters are exceptional. Very high beings, very smart people, very wonderful and very brilliant, very beautiful. They're all artists."
Shortly after Bob's death, Lara and her family filed a lawsuit against the medical examiner's office and the Orange County sheriff to prevent the release of records that may contain audio, photos, and video recordings related to his death.

After filing the suit, Lara took to her Instagram to ask her fans for privacy as she mourned her dad. She said:
"If only people knew how much words and actions matter, how much love and respect mean, how important it is to be kind, honest, and respectful, how poisonous gossip is, how important privacy is to grieve, how we are all responsible. Love will win regardless."
Lara continued that she was sad to see people place their focus on pain, drama, gossip, and negativity, but she prayed for them to find clarity, learn to love themselves, and honor others on the planet.
WHAT RELATIONSHIP DOES LARA MELANIE SAGET HAVE WITH HER STEPMOM?
On October 30, 2018, Bob married video creator, Kelly Rizzo, making her a stepmom to his daughters. After his death, fans wanted to know how Rizzo got along with the Saget women.
She took to her Instagram Story for a Q&A session when a fan asked, "Do you and bob's girls get along and still talk? He was the best." Rizzo responded by letting the fan know that they do more than get along.
The video creator said they love each other and talk or text every day. She further stated they were grateful to be as close as they are because that was not always the case with step-families.
WHAT DOES LARA MELANIE SAGET DO?
Lara is an artist with two bachelor's degrees from Barnard College and Columbia University and a master's degree from New York University. According to her website, her work makes materially visible the limitations of logic.
She believes that not all facts are absolute as they are placeholders for future facts. As one digs deeper, reality becomes exponential because the truth is infinite and bigger than the brain can ever comprehend.
Lara and her older sister co-founded Studio200, a traveling art exhibition collective, in 2013, and they host exhibitions, performances, interdisciplinary workshops, and residency programs.
In her work, she uses rocks, historic sourced Tuckahoe marble, glass, and metal and has realized that these materials can cohabitate when heated to the same degree.
Besides creating art, Lara is also a yoga teacher. On January 8, 2022, she took to her Instagram to reveal that she had been teaching yoga for a long time. She said:
"I have been teaching yoga for over a decade, and I have learned more than I could imagine about teaching yoga during this pandemic. I thought the screen would be a foreign entity, something I couldn't relate to. This screen is a mirror."
Lara further said that while teaching yoga on Zoom during the pandemic, she saw changes in people that blew her mind, and they love she has allowed it.
