The last nine months have undoubtedly been difficult for the actress, whose husband passed away unexpectedly in January at 65. Now, Rizzo is trying to put back the pieces of her broken heart by giving Saget a permanent spot on her arm.
Kelly Rizzo Gives Her Late Husband Bob Saget A Permanent Place On Her Body
Rizzo reminded her 440k followers that she was still mourning the loss of Saget, took to her Instagram Story to post a delicate new tattoo that she had gotten in his memory. The 43-year-old had drawn a martini glass on her arm just before her inner elbow.
The “Eat, Travel, Rock” TV host’s caption read, “My tattoo for Bob. He loved his martinis so much.” Rizzo acknowledged that Laguna Beach-based tattoo artist Rick Coury did the sentimental ink.
To mark the ninth month of his passing, the social media influencer posted a touching never-seen-before clip. The Blast noted that the food blogger posted an Instagram Reel that showcased herself and her late man excited and in love.
They were locked in push-up positions as they answered questions generated by a female voice in the viral “couple’s challenge” trend. Some of the questions included; “Who was interested first? Who said I love you first?” “Who is more protective?” “Who eats more?” and “Who spends the most money?”
Whoever responded positively to each automatically generated question would do one push-up. To participate in this social media trend, the couple wore matching black outfits, with Rizzo donned in a low-cut t-shirt and knee-length leggings.
Saget, on the other hand, rocked a round-neck t-shirt, a pair of comfy sweatpants, and black socks. Even though the footage evoked many happy memories, the accompanying caption added a bittersweet feeling. Rizzo wrote:
“9 months without him. It feels like forever and also one day, all at the same time. I love looking back on these videos to see how much joy and silliness and fun and love we shared.”
She continued by noting that the “ pain and grief ebbs and flows,” and she still had days that were either “lighter” or sucked. The “Unfiltered with Kelly Rizzo” host added:
“But every day, there is a palpable hole where he used to be. But at the same time, he left behind SO much residual love and laughter that he still feels so near and present.”
Concluding, Rizzo penned, “As our anniversary nears later this month, I’ll share more thoughts, but for now, I’ll leave you with this silly video. We had a blast making these. Miss you and love you so much, honey.”
Rizzo and the late stand-up comedian met through mutual friends in 2015 and tied the knot in 2018. Unfortunately, their marriage ended earlier this year after Saget died from a head injury he suffered from a fall in his hotel room. Authorities ruled it an accidental death with no signs of foul play.
The ‘Full House’ Actor’s Widow Opened Up About Her Grief Process
The Blast reported in late September that Rizzo opened up about her journey with grief at a fundraising event held in Saget’s honor. The “Dirty Daddy: The Bob Saget Tribute” producer revealed that she had experienced some bad days attempting to move on with her life.
Speaking during an appearance on the “Cool Comedy Hot Cuisine: A Tribute to Bob Sage” red carpet event, which was held on September 21, Rizzo said:
“You can think you’re doing better one moment, and then all of a sudden, you have a week where it just comes crashing down on you, and it surprises the hell out of you. You’re like, ‘Whoa, I thought it was doing better. Where did that come from?'”
In a separate interview, the “FabLife” guest said that she viewed her grief concerning her husband’s death as “ever-changing” waves that came in “ebbs and flows.” She disclosed that despite the bad days, she focused on choosing her happiness.
In her words, “I’m choosing gratitude and being grateful for the time we had together versus feeling sad that our time was cut short.” The host also urged people going through a similar process to understand that the entire process required time because it came in different phases.
