Stamos began dating model/actress Rebecca Romijn in 1994 after they met at a Victoria's Secret fashion show in which she was modeling. Stamos and Romijn became engaged on Christmas Eve 1997, and they married on September 19, 1998, at the Beverly Hills Hotel. They announced their separation in April 2004. Stamos filed for divorce in August 2004, and it became final on March 1, 2005.On October 23, 2017, Stamos announced his engagement to model and actress Caitlin McHugh after a year of dating. In December 2017, the couple announced they were expecting their first child, due in the spring of 2018. Stamos and McHugh married in February 2018. The couple's son was born in April 2018.On May 19, 2018, John and Caitlin Stamos announced their new jewelry line, "St. Amos Jewelry" with 100% of the proceeds going to the Childhelp foundation.

Early Life

John Stamos was born on August 19, 1963 in Cypress, California to William "Bill" Stamos, a second generation Greek-American restaurateur, and Loretta (née Phillips). His family original surname is Stamatopoulos (Greek: Σταματόπουλος).In his youth, Stamos worked for his father's restaurants, and as a teenager had a job flipping burgers in the Orange County area. He attended John F. Kennedy High School and played in the marching band there. At 15, he attended his first Beach Boys concert; a huge fan, he would later tour with the band. His parents were supportive of his aspiration to be an actor, and although he planned to enroll at Cypress College for the 1981 term, he skipped his first semester to focus on launching a career as an actor—with his father's blessing. After just three weeks, he landed his first role on General Hospital.
