John Stamos and Caitlin McHugh Just Welcomed a Baby Boy!
He’s “not just an uncle anymore.” John Stamos revealed that he and wife Caitlin McHugh have welcomed their first child — a little boy whose name holds so much meaning.
“From now on, the best part of me will always be my wife and my son,” Stamos shared in an adorable black-and-white Instagram. “Welcome Billy Stamos (named after my father).” Stamos — most famous for his role as Uncle Jesse on the Full and Fuller House series, joked that he’s #NotJustanUncleAnymore, and also said that he’s “#overjoyed.”
The couple first revealed they were expecting back in December, but had kept the sex of the baby a secret throughout the pregnancy. Shortly after making the announcement, Stamos posted a tribute to his late father on Instagram as he reflected on becoming a dad himself. “I will certainly fall short of the father my pop was, but — I’m going to give it my all!” he wrote, sharing a photo of the two of them.
The 54-year-old actor has been very vocal about how excited he was to be a dad, previously telling People that he was ready to put all his years of on-screen parenting to use in the real world. “I’ve been practicing for a long time,” he joked. “I’ve done every schtick you can do with a baby on TV … all the bits and jokes and diaper gags. I’ll probably just do all that stuff.”
Just two months before Stamos and McHugh announced they would be welcoming their first child, they got engaged with a romantic Disneyland proposal. Four months later, they tied the knot in Los Angeles in an intimate ceremony before partying at Stamos’ Beverly Hills home into the evening.
Baby Billy is their first child. Congrats to the growing family!

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
