Even John Stamos can’t get enough of Uncle Jesse.

On Busy Philipps‘ new E! talk show, Busy Tonight, the Fuller House star got candid about visiting a fertility clinic with his wife Caitlin McHugh while the couple was trying to get pregnant with their son Billy, now 6 months.

“This is an absolutely true story and I’ve been waiting to tell [it],” he said Monday. “Trying to get pregnant, we had to go to a fertility place, and I had to go give a sperm sample. I can’t believe I’m finally getting to tell this story.”

Stamos, 55, said he was taken into a private room and offered materials.

“I went into this little room and they said, ‘If you need any stimulation or whatever, there’s videos and there’s a TV here,’ ” he recalled. “So I turn the TV on — and it’s on Fuller House. My hand to God!”

“I go, ‘If I’m going to masturbate to myself, it’s going to be my old self — not the new one!’ ” he quipped as Philipps, 39, burst out laughing.

The actor revealed that he and his then-fiancée McHugh were expecting exclusively to PEOPLE in December 2017, explaining that the couple had “talked about” having a baby in the past — and everything just fell into place.

“We have the same morals and the same values, that all clicked nicely. So we said, ‘Oh, well, maybe we should have a family,’ ” Stamos said.

McHugh suggested, ” ‘Maybe we should have a kid [before we get married]’ and I said, ‘Why?’ ‘ he continued, revealing his fiancée jokingly responded, “Because you’re old.”

“The [pregnancy] happened. Then I said, I better have a ring on her finger, because it’s the right thing to do, and I wanted to marry her anyway,” Stamos added.

According to McHugh, the look on Stamos’ face when he found out she was pregnant was “priceless.”

“It was the look of a man who has wanted a family of his own but wasn’t sure it was going to happen for him,” she said. “Now it is!”
