Bob Saget Wife:

His perfect match. Bob Saget wasn’t expecting to find love again after his divorce from Sherri Kramer — until Kelly Rizzo caught his eye.

The Full House alum was married to Kramer for 15 years before they called it quits in 1997. The former couple welcomed three daughters ahead of their divorce: Aubrey in 1987, Lara in 1989 and Jennifer in 1992.

As his children grew up, Saget was introduced to Rizzo and got a second chance at love. The pair announced their engagement in November 2017 after two years of dating, but later told Us Weekly that they didn’t see themselves expanding their family further.

Early Career:

In 1987, Saget was cast as patriarch Danny Tanner on ABC’s “Full House,” where he played the father of D.J. (Candace Cameron), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and Michelle Tanner (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen). In the show, he raises his daughters as a single dad after the death of his wife, and he was joined by his brother-in-law Jesse Katsopolis (John Stamos) and his best friend Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier) to run their adorably dysfunctional sitcom family. The show ran for eight seasons and 192 episodes from 1987 to 1994, reaching more than 17 million viewers during its peak in Season 5. From Season 3 onwards, “Full House” was in the Nielsen Top 30 TV shows.

Netflix launched a sequel series, titled “Fuller House,” which ran for five season and 75 episodes from 2016 to 2020. Saget reprised his role on the show in 10 episodes of the follow-up, including the series premiere and finale. The show followed D.J. as she raised her own children, and most of the original cast members, excluding the Olsens, appeared on the show.

From 1989 to 1997, Saget hosted “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” showcasing hilarious homemade videos of pranks, pratfalls and cute pets. Saget was the inaugural host of the show as it started out as an hourlong special, and he kept the emcee duties for eight seasons. After he departed, the show was co-hosted by John Fugelsang and Daisy Fuentes for two seasons. Tom Bergeron took over in 2001 for a 13-year run, followed by Alfonso Ribeiro starting in 2015.

Besides “Full House” and “AFHV,” Saget was also known for narrating CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother,” where he voiced the future Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) telling his children the story of how he met his wife. The show ran for nine seasons from 2005 to 2014, and Hulu is set to release a follow-up, titled “How I Met Your Father” starring Hilary Duff, on January 18.

He directed the 1998 film “Dirty Work,” starring Norm Macdonald and Artie Lang, which was largely panned by critics and a flop at the box office but has since reached cult status among fans. He also helmed the parody film “Farce of the Penguins,” played a fictionalized version of himself in HBO’s “Entourage,” hosted the game shows “1 vs. 100” and “Nashville Squares” and appeared on the mystery singing competition “The Masked Singer” in 2020.

Known for his dark, sarcastic humor, Saget’s 2014 “That’s What I’m Talkin’ About,” was nominated for best comedy album at the Grammys. He dedicated his 2007 HBO comedy special, “That Ain’t Right,” to his father, Ben Saget, who had died months earlier due to complications from congestive heart failure.

Saget was also a board member of the Scleroderma Research Foundation and raised money to help fight the autoimmune disease. His sister, Gay Saget, was diagnosed with scleroderma and died in 1993.

He is survived by his wife Kelly Rizzo; children Aubrey Saget, Jennifer Belle Saget and Lara Melanie Saget; and ex-wife Sherri Kramer.
