John Stamos 54 and wife Caitlin Mc Hugh welcome baby Billy... naming their first child after Fuller House star's late father

John Stamos has become a father at the age of 54 after his wife gave birth to a baby boy.

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

Last year Stamos said he would try to be as good a father as his own was, sharing a throwback photo of himself as a baby balanced on his father's hands.

'From now on, the best part of me will always be my wife and my son. Welcome Billy Stamos (named after my father),' the 54-year-old actor captioned the shot.

The Fuller House star and McHugh tied the knot in February after two and a half years together. "I'm already so emotional and so excited".

He said: 'I've waited my whole life for this. "I mean, I am really excited".

But the actor feels like becoming a parent represents a new phase in his life. "I've done everything anyone could ever".

John said: 'She's so attractive pregnant.

'She is the most graceful person I've ever met in my life, and she's handling pregnancy like a champ. "I've done every schtick you can do with a baby on TV ... all the bits and jokes and diaper gags". She's magical. She floats into a room.

Something he has wanted for a long time, and now it is just the right time. I'm not nervous about having a kid, I'm not nervous about having a kid with her'.
