Ten days after his son’s arrival, Stamos admitted to PEOPLE that the first week and a half of fatherhood has been a very emotional time for him.

“I cry a lot,” said the first-time father, who wed Caitlin in February. “It’s more beautiful than anyone told me it would be. I’ve been waiting a long time.”

And some of those tears were triggered by song. “I woke up this morning, and I sang him ‘House at Pooh Corner’ ” revealed Stamos, breaking into the 1971 Kenny Loggins tune and its “Christopher Robin” lyrics. “His middle name is Christopher.”
