John Stamos Opens Up About Isolating from Son After COVID-19 Exposure

John Stamos is sharing his experience isolating from his son during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 57-year-old revealed on social media last week that he was self-isolating for a third time after being exposed to someone who tested positive for the coronavirus.

He added that the experience has been very challenging for his son, Billy, who “went to bed crying” because he couldn’t be with his father.

In a recent interview with People, John opened up further about how difficult it’s been to quarantine away from his son.

“He still cries,” John said. “He’ll FaceTime me, but then he starts crying a lot. ‘I want to cuddle,’ he says. ‘Daddy, I want to cuddle.’”


The Full-House actor shared how he and wife Caitlin McHugh Stamos have been explaining the situation to Billy.

Caitlin‘s been telling him that I might have some germs and I have to take a test,” John said. “So every day, he goes, ‘Dad, you have germs? You have germs?’”

John also hinted that he and Caitlin were hoping to expand their family in the near future, but that having to quarantine had thrown a wrench into his plans.

“When I’m locked upstairs in a room and she’s downstairs it makes it hard,” John joked.

John‘s former castmate Bob Saget recently shared how John helped him prepare for his appearance on The Masked Singer. Find out what he said!
