John Stamos wants kids. The 52-year-old actor, who is starring in the new Fox comedy, Grandfathered, recently opened up about wanting to become a dad.
According to Us Weekly, John Stamos says he really noticed that he was missing something in his life while he was filming his new show, which shows him in the dad/grand-dad role. Although he was joking about the idea, he seems to really want to have children of his own.
“My ovaries are rattling. Do men have ovaries? They’re jingling. I can hear them jingling now,” said Stamos. “Everybody on the show is single and we’re all adjusting to this new life. Of course, some of it is my point of view. Like, oh, my God, I’ve got a kid, a grandkid,” he added.
John Stamos has had kids of his own on television, but has never gotten to experience being a father in his off-screen life. While he isn’t dating anyone at the moment (that the public is aware of), he seems really open to the idea of starting a family, even if he is older. It is just something that he never got to experience.
Although Stamos was married for a time (his ex, Rebecca Romijn, is now married to Jerry O’Connell), the two never had children together. Perhaps the actor will meet someone in the future and be able to have children of his own someday. Do you think he’d make a good father?
While this is something that Stamos apparently thinks about from time to time, he seems content just getting back on television, and having his career (sort of) rebooted. He seems to be super excited about Grandfathered, a show that his thrown him back into a role of being a parent (which isn’t really a surprise, is it?).
“I want to play a character that you feel comfortable playing, that you have fun playing. I wanted to be back on TV with something that’s smart and funny and has heart. And it’s emotional. We’re pushing it with this show, especially on Fox. We’re pushing the emotion. It’s either going to work, or it’s not. But we’re going to go home and feel good about it,” Stamos said of Grandfathered. The show premieres on September 29.
Meanwhile, Fuller House is currently in production, and will be on Netflix some time next year.
