Newly Engaged Bob Saget & Kelly Rizzo: Inside Their Sweet Love Story
Saget, 61, announced the happy news on Wednesday with a photo of the couple with friends Katie Killean and George Shapiro at dinner.
“Love the people in this picture. The most loving and legendary @George_Shapiro Katie Killean & of course my gal Kelly. In case you’re wondering, we were celebrating our engagement— and I know George and I will be very happy together,” he joked in the caption.
Rizzo, a food and travel blogger who is TV host of her website and streaming series Eat Travel Rock, also shared the news on social media, showing off her gorgeous sparkler.
“Who needs pearls??? Enjoying my favorite food with my new favorite accessory,” she captioned the photo.
While the happy couple soaks up the excitement of their engagement, here’s a look back at the duo’s journey throughout the years.
Saget didn’t think he’d find love again.
After splitting from his first wife, Sherri Kramer — to whom he was married for 15 years and shares three grown daughters (Aubrey, Lara Melanie and Jennifer Belle) — Saget didn’t think he’d find happily ever after.
“I didn’t think I’d have a relationship again,” he told Closer Weekly. “I was kind of in that ‘just work, make people happy and take care of your kids until they’re 90’ mindset.”
“My daughters love her!” he said of Rizzo. “She’s a remarkable person, and she’s really talented. She’s got her own website and streaming series called Eat Travel Rock.”
He added: “I’m happier today, and I’m the youngest 61-year-old I know!”
They first met in 2015.
The Chicago native, 38, and Saget met in early 2015 through a mutual friend. “I don’t really see him as Danny Tanner,” Rizzo told Michigan Ave magazine. “To me he’s just Bobby, my love.”
They love to travel together … and document it through photos!
Since finding romance with Rizzo, Saget has frequently taken to social media to share sweet moments from their trips and adventures together, including New York, Cabo San Lucas and Las Vegas.
They have friends in common.
They both love John Mayer.
Saget was married to Kramer from 1982-97. This will be Rizzo’s first marriage.
