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

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…
