In a new tell-all interview, TV star John Stamos revealed that he once got a girl pregnant and they aborted their unborn baby.

Stamos, famous for his role on the 1980s hit TV show Full House, told radio host Howard Stern on Monday about the struggles he has battled throughout his life, including grief, sleep, and drug and alcohol addiction.

When Stern asked Stamos if he had ever gotten a girl pregnant, the TV star confessed that he and a woman, who he did not name, got pregnant when he was in his late 20s, according to the Inquisitr. He said they decided to have an abortion.

“This was just bad timing,” Stamos told Stern. “It really wasn’t my choice … I think it was sort of a mutual decision.”

The Examiner reports that Stamos was married to model and actress Rebecca Romijin for seven years, but they did not have any children.

Stamos admitted that his past was full of bad choices – though his comment was not directly about the abortion. He said after his father and mother died and after his divorce, he went “down a wrong path” and his life “just got darker and darker.”



“I derailed over the years. I never really got back on track,” he said. “A piece of me just was gone…. It was a big part of my purpose for many, many years to be there for [my mom] and be a good son.”

Stamos said he was addicted to the sleep medication Ambien and had a “horrific” DUI arrest, “which I am so embarrassed by.” The 52-year-old said he is working hard to stay sober. He went through rehab and spent three months on probation for the DUI, according to the reports.

“I really don’t have anything to hide anymore,” said Stamos, who clarified that he now doesn’t drink and also doesn’t miss getting high “at all.”

Stamos revealed very little about the abortion, but his troubled past with drugs and alcohol may have a link to the abortion of his unborn child. Numerous studies have linked depression and drug abuse to abortion.
