Check­ing in with LORI LOUGH­LIN

Santa Fe New Mexican - - CELEBRITY SCOOP -

If De­cem­ber isn’t Lori Lough­lin Month on tele­vi­sion, it’s hard to prove. With a new Hall­mark Chan­nel movie – “Home­grown Christ­mas,” also fea­tur­ing her el­dest daugh­ter, Bella Gian­nulli – play­ing through the hol­i­days, the home-screen sta­ple’s fourth sea­son of Net­flix’s “Fuller House” de­buts Fri­day, Dec. 14. Then, Lough­lin reap­pears in Hall­mark in what has be­come an an­nual tra­di­tion: a Christ­mas edi­tion of “When Calls the Heart” (on the most ap­pro­pri­ate date, Dec. 25) that pre­cedes that se­ries’ next sea­son. The re­turn of “Fuller House” comes soon after an oc­ca­sion that reaf­firmed the fam­ily feel­ing among the sit­com’s cast mem­bers: the wed­ding of Bob Saget, alias the show’s Danny Tan­ner. “Oh, my gosh, it was so spe­cial,” the pleas­ant Lough­lin says. “It was nice to see Bob in this very happy, safe place and re­ally in love. The wed­ding was el­e­gant, and (his new wife) Kelly looked beau­ti­ful. “Bob is great friends with John Mayer,” adds Lough­lin, “and John got up with his gui­tar and sang a cou­ple of songs, which was such a treat. It was just lovely.” The cer­e­mony was of­fi­ci­ated by ac­tor Jonathan Sil­ver­man (“Week­end at Bernie’s”), who Lough­lin re­ports is “an­other long­time friend of Bob’s. It just had re­ally nice touches like that, and it was a re­ally spe­cial cel­e­bra­tion.” At­ten­dees also in­cluded Lough­lin’s “hus­band” on “Fuller House,” John Sta­mos, who be­came a firsttime fa­ther this year. “I couldn’t be more in love with that child,” Lough­lin en­thuses. “Hon­estly, I would move in with them if they’d let me! That baby is so pre­cious; he’s just the hap­pi­est lit­tle guy. I think that his whole life, (Sta­mos) has waited for the woman of his dreams, and he’s waited for this lit­tle boy to en­ter his world. I just don’t think he can even be­lieve his en­tire fan­tasy and dream has come true.” Birth­date: July 28, 1964 Birth­place: Queens, N.Y.
