The only thing better than a photo of the one and only John Stamos (and his incredible hair, obviously) is a pic of him with his baby boy, Billy.
The adorable son who the Fuller House actor shares with his wife, Caitlin McHugh, was born in April, and Stamos was instantly smitten. Fatherhood came later for him than for most — he was 54 — but he’s making up for lost time now, taking every opportunity to gush about his little one in public, snuggle with him, and, like a lot of dads, proudly display photos of his offspring.
He made hearts melt with his words about his first Father’s Day as a dad. Stamos also gave fans their first glimpse of Billy’s tiny face.
My first Father’s Day means that I don’t have to hand a kid back to the parents when someone yells cut. It means when people ask me if I’m a father, I don’t have to use the goofy line, “No, but I play one on TV” My first Father’s Day means that from this day forward— I will start to look my age (and older) Most importantly, it means that for the rest of my life, I’ll always be known as someone’s dad. And that’s all I ever wanted. Happy Father’s day.

He paired some of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Hamilton” lyrics with a snapshot that was really more about father than son. Not that anyone minds…
“Look at my son, pride is not the word I’m looking for, there is so much more inside me now. When you smile, I fall apart —” Listening to Dear Theodosia – Goosebumps /Tears – Damn you #linmanuelmiranda Your message is more needed now than ever. Your genius is time-released!

Until Father’s Day, Stamos had been careful to obscure his son’s face in the images that he shared, but even then he showed fans enough to make us say, “Aww.”
This black-and-white snapshot of Stamos wearing a robe that reads “Daddy,” holding Billy in his arms, should be framed at his home. Come on, it has to be said: Have mercy!
Stamos makes everything look a little cooler. Truly, this should be a pro-voting ad.

Baby Billy already supports his dad’s Full House band, Jesse and the Rippers. Appropriately enough, he rocked a onesie with the band’s name on it when he met Stamos’s longtime co-stars Lori Loughlin and Bob Saget.

Stamos declared himself a changed man when he became a dad. Lucky for fans, he didn’t change too much.
