Kelly Rizzo and Breckin Meyer debuted their relationship Sunday night while celebrating the 2024 Grammy Awards.
Rizzo, 44, and Meyer, 49, appeared at a Grammys party holding hands as they marked their first public appearance as a couple two years after Bob Saget’s death.
“It took a while to get to the point where I’m like, ‘OK, I think [Bob would] be happy with it,'” she told E! News.
Before taking the relationship public, Rizzo opened up about Saget’s daughters encouraging her to date again. Saget died in January 2022 after a fall in a Florida hotel room.
“It’s meant everything,” Rizzo told Fox News Digital. “Even though it’s something that you don’t think you need permission for, it meant everything to me to have their blessing and just knowing that they want me to be happy and that they love me.”
“And the two of them saying that Bob would want me to be happy meant everything because they’re his kids. They knew him best.”
“I’d love to think that Bob would want me to be happy, too, but to hear it from them is just a totally different level,” she added. “And it meant the world just to hear, ‘Hey, we trust you. We love you. We know you’re going to do what’s right, and we want you to be happy.’ To continually have their support – I couldn’t ask for a greater gift.”
Rizzo and the cast of “Full House,” the show Saget was most known for, honored the comedian on the two-year anniversary of his sudden death.
“I will forever be grateful that I got to share life with this extraordinary person for 6 years,” she wrote on Instagram at the time. “What a blessing. And grateful I can look back on endless memories and photos and videos with smiles, laughter, and yes… still tears. It is such a gift I was able to know his complete and all encompassing love and heart.”
John Stamos, who starred on “Full House” with the comedian, hosted a virtual reunion for the cast as well.
“We’re all close friends. We keep in contact, like, constantly,” Candace Cameron Bure told Fox News Digital about the online get-together. “I always just get amused when [the media calls] them reunions because I’m like, ‘We’re literally family hanging out.’ But sometimes we do that publicly.”
“It’s always going to be a special but hard day in our lives,” Bure added. “We’re always going to honor Bob for the rest of our lives and probably together and probably publicly because we love him so much and want to keep his memory alive. We’re family through and through.”
It’s unclear when Rizzo and Meyer first met. Meyer began his entertainment career in the music industry, playing drums for the Streetwalking Cheetahs. Some of the group’s hits include “None of Your Business,” “All I Want” and “Turn Me Down.”
He later launched his acting career and is known for roles in “Clueless,” “Road Trip,” “Rat Race” and “Franklin & Bash.”
A representative for Rizzo did not respond to Fox News Digital’s immediate request for comment.
