And just like that, John Stamos is off the market! We hate to break it to ya, ladies, but the Fuller House actor announced his engagement to Caitlin McHugh on Sunday, October 22. The actor took to Instagram to share an illustration of himself and the actress in front of Sleeping Beauty's castle at the happiest place on earth. You guessed it, Disneyland! The tourist spot has become a popular spot for proposals, weddings, and honeymoons. For example, one man decided to pop the question to his boyfriend atop Disney World's Splash Mountain ride. And back in January, sports broadcaster Erin Andrews opened up about her own Disneyland proposal story.
Of course, the magical photo (pun intended) contained an even more magical caption. “I asked…she said yes!…And we lived happily ever after,” Stamos wrote.
According to the actor’s rep, Stamos made a short film of romantic moments from notable Pixar and Disney films, ending the clip with The Little Mermaid, which displayed “just ask the girl,” a play on the film's popular song “Kiss the Girl.”
While the couple attended the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation Benefit Dinner on Tuesday, fans finally got a look at the stunning sparkler. The gorgeous engagement ring features an emerald cut diamond set on a sterling silver band.
Just a few days before getting on one knee, Stamos hinted that he was ready to settle down during an interview on On Air With Ryan Seacrest. “Place your bets—who gets married first on this planet, John or me?” Seacrest asked his radio-show crew, to which Stamos responded, “I’m dating and I’m very much in love.”
“It’s great, isn’t it? Aren’t you so happy?” the actor asked Seacrest, who is dating Shayna Taylor. “You get to this point, and time goes by so damn fast,” Stamos added. “Who wants to live alone?”
The low-key actress doesn’t mind gushing about her beau once in a while either. “He’s very encouraging of anything I want to do career-wise,” McHugh told Entertainment Tonight back in January. “I really appreciate it a lot. You don’t get that with every guy.”
Congrats, you two!
