The Truth About Bob Saget’s Relationship With Jodie Sweetin

Bob Saget and Jodie Sweetin shared a special bond. The actor was only 5 years old, per Bustle, when she first appeared on “Full House,” playing the daughter of the newly widowed Danny Tanner. In an interview with Closer Weekly, Saget revealed why Sweetin brought out his “paternal” instincts. “When Jodie Sweetin was 9-years-old, my daughter Aubrey was 7, and so they would play together, and Jodie slept over at the house,” he revealed. Sweetin was one of the kids running around his house! He added, “I felt like friends to everyone. They’re women and I’m not an ageist.”

On January 19, 2021, Saget tweeted a note to Sweetin on her 39th birthday. It read, “Happy Birthday @JodieSweetin !” He then gushed, “You haven’t changed at all! Why do people say that? You’ve turned from an adorable sweet little girl to an adorable empowered young woman.” Saget ended off the tribute with his signature quirky sense of humor, “Proud to be your friend all these years and always. Oh, it’s Bob.”

In 2020, Sweetin addressed an audience at Penn State. She revealed how “Full House” impacted her while growing up. “The things that I remember the most about growing up on television were not the things that happened in front of the camera,”  she said. “But is really the family and the stuff that we built behind the scenes,” she mused. Bob Saget was not only America’s dad, he was Jodie Sweetin’s too.
