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.
