John Stamos was adorably interrupted by his three-year-old son Billy as the actor tried to tell his child a story in a new video. 

On Monday, the 58-year-old star shared a clip to his Instagram story in which he was seen holding Billy as he began his story.

‘Ok, here’s the story, son, once upon a time….,’ John said before breaking off when a grinning Billy turned his head to yell at his father.

‘Ahhhhhh!’ John shouted in mock surprise and pretended to be scared as his son giggled. 

The General Hospital alum then pulled Billy closer and gently brushed back the child’s hair.

He continued, ‘C’mon man, I’m trying to tell you a story, quietly…’

Billy yelled again and began laughing as John widened his eyes and feigned shock.

He wrote the words ‘My Heart’ in pink at the bottom of the video.

The actor and comedian, 65, was found dead in his room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida, on January 9, the afternoon after he performed his stand-up act at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall, outside of Jacksonville.

Since learning of Bob’s passing, John has shared heartfelt messages and photos of himself with his friend in remembrance.

And on Sunday, he posted another image of the two as they posed in a field behind a round white art installation that was emblazoned with the word ‘Love’ in black.

Bob rested his chin on his hand as he leaned on the installation while John beamed at the camera.

The Big Shot actor simply captioned his Instagram post , ‘#Love.’  

Bob was laid to rest January 14, at Mount Sinai Memorial Park Cemetery, in the Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles

Last Friday, John gave fans a look at his eulogy that he gave at Bob’s memorial.

The speech, which included a look back at his loving heart by using a healthy dose of hilarious anecdotes, just the way his ‘best friend would have wanted, was published in its entirety in the Los Angeles Times.

John began the speech by revealing how he isn’t ready to accept that Bob is gone, and how he’s ‘not going to say goodbye yet.’ 

‘I imagine him out there, still on the road, doing what he loves with all his heart and humor. He’s standing on stage, killing! Another two-hour set in front of a couple hundred of the luckiest people on the planet. They’re laughing so hard they weep,’ he said.

From there, John shared how Bob would have then called his wife of more than three-years, Kelly Rizzo, whom he has called ‘his one true love,’ right after the show to give her his impression of how it went, and to tell her ‘he loves her with every bit of his heart’ and that he ‘misses his daughters, his family and his friends.’

‘God, he loves us all so much. Bob goes to sleep dreaming of when we’ll meet again — and he’s smiling. I know in my heart he’s smiling, still hearing the laughter from a few hours before,’ he confesses with obvious, heartfelt emotion in his words. 

John went on to admit that he feels like Bob should still be out ‘challenging himself creatively’ by doing his stand-up routine, giving his adoring fans his raw, wild, unpredictable, and uncensored’ comedy: ‘Tonight’s specials are cake and c**k … and we’re out of cake,’ he joked.  

The emotions flowed when John referenced Bob’s last Instagram post, just before his death, sharing how his friend ‘looked too ‘alive’ to die a few hours later.’

TV family: John reminisced about their time on the set of Full House (1987-1995), and how they had very different styles of acting upon the premiere.

‘Bob felt young, energized, grateful and appreciated. The applause and laughter didn’t have time to die down before Bob did. He never ran out of cake … or the other stuff. He died bright and fierce,’ he said.

After sharing how Bob ‘died after doing what he did best’, John turned his focus to the ‘worldwide ocean of love’ that has poured in since his friend’s passing.

‘I just wish he knew how much the world loved him when he was here,’ he said of his pal, continuing, ‘I spent many a night trying to convince him of how loved he really was (or maybe it was the other way around — him trying to convince me how loved he was). But that was just Bob bluster. There’s no way he thought his death would have this kind of impact. This is the kind of coverage that speaks to someone who genuinely connected with people, and not just for a moment, but for generations.’  

John revealed that the eulogy, and overall role he was playing at the memorial, ‘is one of the great honors of his 58 years on Planet Earth.

He also reminisced about their time on the set of Full House (1987-1995), and how they had very different styles of acting upon the premiere. 

‘It didn’t take long for us to meet in the middle and to respect each other professionally and creatively as the years went by,’ John explained.

And it turns out Bob was there for him through the toughest of times in his personal life.   

‘When things came crashing down, the last person on Earth I ever imagined would be my rock became just that,’ he shared, before revealing how he opened his heart and used his impeccable humor to get him through life’s harsh realities like’ the deaths of his parents, divorces, despairs and dark days.

‘He was also there through love, marriage, a child and bright times. He was my lifeline,’ he followed up.   

Devastated: John also talked about his broken heart in the moments right after he learned of Saget's death; he is seen at  the funeral at Mount Sinai Memorial Park Cemetery, which is in the Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles

John also talked about his broken heart in the moments right after he learned of Bob’s death. 

‘I was shattered and felt worthless to help anyone else. But my supportive wife picked me up, threw me in the car and drove to Bob and Kelly’s house. That’s what Bob would have done if it were the other way around,’ he said.  

Processing his best friend’s death after a personal and professional relationship that’s spanned 35 years is still a work in progress for the actor.

‘I’ve spent days refusing to let him go,’ he admitted,. But now I’m starting to realize I don’t have to. I don’t have to say goodbye because he’s never leaving my heart. And I will continue to talk to him every day and let him know what he means to me.’

The eulogy ended with John confessing that he will never have a friend like Bob, and that he will forever be his best friend, as well as a ‘guardian angel.’

‘A guardian angel with the dirtiest mouth and a heart as big and benevolent as forever,’ he joked, before ending with: ‘I love you, Baby.’ 

John’s Jesse Katsopolis and Bob’s Danny Tanner were best friends on Full House during its eight season run from 1987 to 1995. They would go on to reprise their roles on the Netflix reboot, Fuller House, that had a five season run from 2016 to 2020.

On his Instagram page last Friday, John posted a screen-grab of a CNN broadcast involving his friend’s death.

The stock photo CNN chose showed Bob standing in front of a backdrop advertising NBC Peacock – with his head blocked out the letters in a suggestive way.

‘Even in death, he found a way to get one last d*** joke in! My guardian angel with the dirtiest mouth and a heart as big and benevolent as forever,’ John wrote.
