Meet Kelly Rizzo, Bob Saget Wife
“Full House” star Bob Saget was married to his wife Kelly Rizzo at the time of his death. His wife Kelly Rizzo had shared with Michigan Avenue Magazine that they had met each other through a mutual friend. “Bob and I met through a mutual friend in early 2015. I don’t see him as Danny Tanner. To me, he’s just Bobby, my love.”
Bob then slid into her DMs and asked her out to come to his show and for a dinner later that night. Although Kelly was reluctant about that she met him and they pair hit it off.
In June 2017, the comedian interviewed with Closer Magazine. There he addressed his relationship with Kelly. He told, “My daughters love her!”. He added, “She’s a remarkable person, and she’s talented.”
Five months after the interview, Bob popped the big question and they got engaged in November 2017. “We got engaged last week- a total surprise,” Kelly shared the engagement news with US Weekly and told. “Though being viral is part of my business, I still try to be fairly private when it concerns our relationship…. But I will say that Bob and I are incredibly lucky to have found each other, and I love all six of his personalities.”
The comedian also shared the new news of the engagement on his Instagram on 8 November 2017. He captioned, “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”.
In April 2018, Kelly talked about the relationship with Bob’s kids and shared, “He has three girls and I’m super close with them. He’s been there, done that. Not for me. So, just gonna enjoy life and travel around. Maybe one day I’ll talk him into a dog.”
The engaged couple had announced that they were hosting a “really small” wedding ceremony and hoped to give their guests a ‘laid-back” experience on their special day. Before the wedding, Kelly spoke to US Weekly and shared that she had met no one like him. She added, “He keeps me on my toes, literally. He’s just a wonderful guy. He’s a comedian, so there’s never a dull moment! And all of his friends are just so fun because they’re just as fun and unique and complex as he is.”
Kelly and Bob exchanged their wedding vows on 25 October 2018. The married couple documented their travels, date nights, vacations, on their Instagram. In a video of his last year, Saget, lovingly joked about Rizzo’s career, “When you meet a beautiful food influencer in your DMs and you marry her … and now I can’t use my kitchen.”
Bob was previously married to his ex-wife Sherri Kramer. They tied the knots in 1997 and shared three daughters: Aubrey in 1987, Lara in 1989, and Jennifer in 1992.
Kelly Rizzo Ex-Husband
Before Kelly Rizzo met Bob, she met and also married her ex-husband. In November 2010, she had tweeted, “Haha “@chelseahandler: It’s Monday, and I got married over the weekend. I will introduce my husband on tonight’s show.” One of her tweets suggested that her ex-husband either worked for Imagine Lifestyles or owned the company.
In December 2010, Kelly wrote, “My husband puts nail thru finger 1 month after I stepped on a nail & went thru foot. Crazy & gross!” But, since she and Bo Saget started dating in 2015, their marriage lasted for at most 5 years.
