John Stamos recently opened up to the world on how isolating from his 2-year-old after COVID-19 exposure has been “very difficult.”
Stamos, 57, recently spoke on being separated from his son, William “Billy Christopher” after having to quarantine for a third-time for COVID-19 exposure.
And while Stamos admitted how he “never posts personal stuff,” he felt it was important to share what he was going through in an effort to be a reminder to continue to keep others safe.
“I think no matter what your living situation is or job situation, I think everyone can relate to not being able to just hold their kid,” he says.
After previously sharing on Twitter that Billy “went to bed crying” because he couldn’t be with his father, Stamos shared how his son is still having a hard time coping.
“He still cries,” Stamos says. “He’ll FaceTime me, but then he starts crying a lot. ‘I want to cuddle,’ he says. ‘Daddy, I want to cuddle.’ “
His wife, Caitlin McHugh Stamos, attempted to explain the situation in words that Billy could wrap his head around.
“Caitlin’s been telling him that I might have some germs and I have to take a test,” he explains. “So every day, he goes, ‘Dad, you have germs? You have germs?’ “
Stamos also revealed that he and his wife, 34, are hoping to add to their family soon but due to the timing of his quarantine — it poses a difficult situation.
“When I’m locked upstairs in a room and she’s downstairs it makes it hard,” he laughs.
“We really would like two [kids] and honestly I think when this last quarantine hit, it was the wrong time because it was the right time to make a baby. It’s also our anniversary this week, so I’m missing both those things,” he adds.
