John Stamos on Making the Mutual Decision to Get an Abortion

"I really don't have anything to hide anymore."

John Stamos is gearing up for the sure-to-be-life-changing premiere of Fuller House, and he made an appearance on The Howard Stern Show to talk candidly about his life pre and post Uncle Jessie.

"I really don't have anything to hide anymore," he said. "My father passed away and I got divorced and it sent me down a wrong path...I lost myself. I lost my sense of discipline, which my dad taught me so well. More and more I was just dipping into that dark place. It was getting darker and darker. It stunted my growth emotionally. Maybe I would be married with kids right now."

Stamos never had children, but did reveal that he got a woman pregnant in his twenties. While she made the ultimate call to terminate the pregnancy, the decision was mutual.

"This was just bad timing," Stamos said. "It really wasn't my choice...I think it was sort of a mutual decision."

Obviously, it wasn't Stamos' choice because it wasn't his body—but it sounds like he was appropriately supportive of his partner's decision. As if we needed another reason to love him.
