While Bob Saget parented three little girls on Full House in the late ’80s and early ’90s, he was also parenting his own three girls at home.

After a day of working on the family sitcom, which originally aired from 1987 to 1995, “my daughter would smell the other baby on me when I came home and think I was cheating on her,” he jokes of filming with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who played his youngest TV daughter, Michelle.

Today, the longtime stand-up comedian, 59, says his three grown daughters with ex-wife Sherri Kramer are “the best people I know.”

“They are the light of my life. I am a fortunate man in that all three of my daughters are exceptional. Very high beings, very smart people, very wonderful and very brilliant, very beautiful. They’re all artists.”

Saget, like the rest of the cast, says he remains close with everyone, calling the Olsens “family.” “It’s not just people who come into your life because you did some show together,” says the author of the bestselling memoir, Dirty Daddy.

“I have a closeness with Candace [Cameron Bure] that’s incredibly strong, and with Jodie [Sweetin] and even Andrea [Barber]. We give each other crap!”
