John admitted at the time that he was thrilled to become a dad for the first time at 54.

The former General Hospital star spoke about the exciting news to PEOPLE magazine at the time.

John admitted he wasn't ready for fatherhood until now.

"Clearly I had to do some work on myself, first. I have a youthful thing," he continued. "People say, 'Oh, you look young.' You'll start believing you're gonna live to be 150. And then you wake up and go, 'No, man, this is it. This is not a rehearsal.'"

Stamos said he'll be a "fun dad" because he's been "practicing for a long time."
