Bob Saget's Full House family holds a special place in his heart.

During an upcoming episode of the Inside of You with Michael Rosenbaum podcast, Saget, who played Danny Tanner on the hit sitcom, opens up about his bond with his Full House daughters, Candace Cameron Bure (D.J. Tanner), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner) and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (Michelle Tanner).

"I'm very close with Candace, always was since we did the pilot," Saget said, according to E! News. "Jodie used to sleep over at my house and play with my daughter Aubrey, my oldest."

As for the Olsen twins, 34, the actor, 64, said he's remained close with them over the years as well, even though they didn't participate in the Netflix reboot, Fuller House.

"Ashley and Mary-Kate," he said, "I love so much. When I'm in New York or when they're here, when we can, we see each other."

Much like with his real-life children, Saget said he could never choose a "favorite" among his TV daughters.

"They're all friends, it's not like they're kids," he said. "But Jodie was probably more like a kid to me. Ashley and Mary-Kate are more like friends because I kind of got the whole thing of everything they're about. Candace is a friend. They've all been there for me in a big way when I've gone through hard stuff."

Another Full House costar Saget has remained close with? Lori Loughlin, 56, who recently completed her prison sentence for her involvement in the college admissions scandal.

"I love her," he said, according to E! News. "I've been asked [about] it a lot. I've gotten whittled down. I just love her. I don't know, I'd like to see a lot of other people doing time. We're in such a place where no matter what I say I'm screwed, and I just love her. That's where I am on that."

Full House originally ran for eight seasons on ABC from 1987 to 1995 and also starred John StamosAndrea Barber and Dave Coulier. All five seasons of Fuller House (2016-2020) are streaming on Netflix.
