John Stamos and wife Caitlin McHugh have welcomed their first child together, a little boy.

The actor was quick to receive messages of congratulations from both his fans and his Full House co-stars.

"From now on, the best part of me will always be my wife and my son", Stamos captioned the black-and-white photo of the baby resting on his chest and holding his finger. "Welcome Billy Stamos (named after my father) #NotJustanUncleAnymore #Overjoyed", he captioned the sweet black and white snap.

"I will certainly fall short of the father my pop was, but I'm going to give it my all".

Stamos, who Wednesday model Caitlin, 31, in February after two-and-a-half years together, had talked of his excitement about becoming a father.

In an emotional December Instagram post, Stamos remembered his late father as he wrote about becoming a dad.


"I've waited my whole life for this", he gushed at the premiere of longtime pal Bob Saget's new movie, Benjamin.

He told Entertainment Tonight: 'I don't know what I would do if I wasn't having a baby right now. "People would say, 'You should have a child.' I was like, 'That ship has sailed'". "Clearly I had to do some work on myself first", the actor said.

After a lengthy career, Stamos said he sees his new, expanding family as the next step.

He previously said: "It's just taken me a lot longer than I anticipated".

To which Caitlin cheekily responded: "Because you're old". "I'll probably just do all that stuff". "I've had the most handsome blessed life on the planet, and the most honest real thing I could do I haven't done".
