John Stamos to be a Dad at 54!

Finally, John Stamos will start to have a full house…. He and his fiancée Caitlin McHugh are expecting their first child together.. The couple got engaged back in October, click here if you missed that…

According to People.com:

In the latest episode of The Jess Cagle Interview (streaming now on People TV), Stamos tells PEOPLE’s Editor-in-Chief Jess Cagle that he and McHugh “talked about” having a baby in the past — and everything just fell into place.

“We have the same morals and the same values, that all clicked nicely. So we said, ‘Oh, well, maybe we should have a family,’ ” says the Fuller House star.

McHugh suggested, “‘Maybe we should have a kid [before we get married]’ and I said, ‘Why?’” Stamos recalls, revealing his fiancée jokingly responded, “Because you’re old.”

The couple are overjoyed to be adding to their family — though they’re keeping mum on the baby’s sex for now — with Stamos admitting that he “always wanted to be a dad” but wasn’t sure it was in the cards. “People would say, ‘You should have a child,’ ” he tells PEOPLE. “I was like, ‘That ship has sailed.’ “

Luckily for Stamos, that ship is anchored quite steadily — and the star can’t wait for its next voyage, during which his feet will be planted firmly on board.

“I’ll be a fun dad. I’ve been practicing for a long time,” he says, joking, “I’ve done every schtick you can do with a baby on TV … all the bits and jokes and diaper gags. I’ll probably just do all that stuff.”

The mom-to-be couldn’t agree more about Stamos being ready for fatherhood, praising her fiancé for having “the biggest, most loving and generous heart of anyone I know.”

I wonder if Uncle Jessie is going to play “Forever” when the baby is born…
