What You Never Knew About Bob Saget

For decades, actor-comedian Bob Saget has been affectionately referred to as “America’s Dad.” He got the nickname from starring in the long-running ABC sitcom “Full House” as Danny Tanner. Danny was the father of three young girls, DJ, Stephanie, and Michelle, who were played by Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

The Olsen twins, who shared the role of Michelle, were just nine months old when “Full House” began, and Saget took care of them like he was their dad — even changing their diapers on set. “Cameras were rolling and one of the young ladies had made a poop, which had to be removed or we would have been holding a child with a smashed-poo-filled diaper for a long scene,” Saget recalled in his memoir “Dirty Daddy” (excerpted by Us Weekly). He had since reminded them about these on-set “favors.” “The joke I have with them is that I diapered them,” he told Pop Eater (via Us Weekly). 

Saget was also a dutiful real-life American Dad off-screen, too. His daughters, Aubrey, Lara, and Jennifer, grew up alongside his “Full House” family. However, sometimes his extended family didn’t always get along. “My daughter would smell the other baby on me when I came home and think I was cheating on her,” he joked (via People).

When the series ended, Saget continued to star in dad roles — appearing in “Raising Dad” and “Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd” — which only added to his “America’s Dad” status.
