Have mercy! John StamosWhich Full HouseHis 4-year old son, Billy, already knows the catchphrase.

“I’ll catch them, [Billy and the nanny], Full House sometimes,” Stamos, 59, exclusively told Us Weeklyon Wednesday, September 21st while promoting his partnership to Arnold, Brownberry, and Oroweat Breads. “I’ll come home [and say], ‘What are you guys doing?’ And [he says], ‘Oh, nothing.’”

While Billy doesn’t always admit that he’s watching his dad on TV, the little guy has learned one of Michelle Tanner’s (played by Mary-KateAnd Ashley Olsen) famous lines.

“He just did it a couple days ago, [he] was like, ‘You got it, dude!’” the California native said, noting it was “not sarcastic but not, like, you know, cool.”

From 1987 to 1995 on the sitcom, Uncle Jesse aired for eight seasons. The role was re-enacted in 2016 by Stamos for the spinoff Fuller House, which ended 2020.

The Big ShotStar revealed Use that “for a while” he got tired of the notoriety that came with the memorable character. “I feel like I’ve done so much work since then,” Stamos said. “I think I’ve really had a wonderful career, so now I just embrace it. Yeah, It doesn’t bother [me].”

Although he was a soap opera star, he shares Billy with his wife. Caitlin McHugh, is happy he chose to become an actor, he isn’t ready for Billy to follow in his footsteps.

“He likes to do stunts. Like, he’s very, you know, physical,” Stamos told Use of his son, adding, “I’m not gonna let him be a stuntman. … But he’s not a showbiz-y kind of kid, which I love.”

The Grandfathered alum confessed that he “hopes” Billy doesn’t want to act, pointing out that he doesn’t like the limelight as of now. “When you want him to take a picture or do something, he’ll make faces and, you know, he doesn’t want [that attention] so that’s good,” he explained. “But we do a lot of stunts.”

The singer also joked that Billy currently likes “taking the piss out of his father” as he continues to grow. Through it all, Stamos said he just wanted his son to think he’s “cool,” which is part of the reason he’s taken certain gigs since becoming a parent.

He recalled that he had voiced Iron Man. Spidey and his Amazing Friends after Billy took interest in the show, noting that Billy “loves” it. The former Scream QueensActor, however, claims that most of his time is spent with his wife, 36, and Billy on less glamorous activities.

“I love family time. We try to do things, the three of us, quite a bit,” he said on Wednesday. “There’s a shopping center up here called The Commons. We love to go there. We see the turtles, we have a dinner … and then we have our ice cream, we just sit and talk and eat ice cream cones. It’s something I enjoy doing. It’s pretty special.”

Stamos is able to balance his work and personal life while still making time for Orowat Breads, Arnold, Brownberry, and Brownberry Breads. He has even created his own recipe, which the company has dubbed the “Heartthrob Cobb” sandwich featuring the Small Slice bread.

“I make this cobb salad that I got from Disney World. It’s famously prepared at the Brown Derby. I got the recipe and then I thought, ‘Well, how do I combine this [and] make a sandwich out of it?’” the Little Mermaid Lives!Actor told Use. “So I make the salad [and]I then put it on toast, bread, then off we go. It tastes good.”

Stamos gushed over his time with the “great company,” adding, “They’ve been so good to me. They’ve let me just have fun with these commercials.”
