John Stamos' heart is merry as he rejoices with his ''Full House'' co-star Ashley Olsen following the birth of her child.

Stamos, Ashley, and her twin sister Mary-Kate Olsen became one big family after the trio starred in the sitcom series, ''Full House,'' which aired in 1987. While their relationship outside of the show is one filled with love, they have had their differences and moved past them.

Fortunately, Stamos found a reason to celebrate Ashley publicly, and the 60-year-old actor did it gleefully.

The 'You'' actor was filled with emotions as he celebrated Olsen for welcoming a baby boy with her husband while also extending his love to her twin sister, Mary-Kate.

The video displayed the trio playing in the swimming pool, spending time on the beach, taking trips to Disneyland, and even partying at events when the siblings became adults.

Making the clip more emotional, he added a voiceover featuring a section of the audio version of his new autobiography, ''If You Would Have Told Me,'' a memoir that is to be released on Oct. 24.

Stamos recalled the twins playing the role of ''Michelle Tanner,'' in the "Full House" series and noted how his relationship with the former actresses developed over the years.

''The last casting call is for Danny's little daughter,'' the actor, who played the role of 'Jesse Katsopolis' in the ABC sitcom, began by saying. He continued, ''Two adorable munchkins, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, are cast in the role of Michelle. They have big blue eyes wide with wonder.''

The ''Big Shot'' actor added, ''Right away I know the relationship between Jesse and Michelle is an important one, but as the show develops, the connection grows. I'm young, but I really want kids someday, and these lovely little girls' so bouncy and bright represent the best versions of future dreams. They allow me to consider fatherhood like a benched baseball catcher in a dugout, watching from afar but not having to catch any curve balls.''

Stamos further recollected, ''I take them to Disneyland, I adore them, giving them kisses on top of their head, buy them a few crappy souvenirs and then hand them back to their parents to the hard work.''

The actor affectionately eulogized the twins, adding, ''The little kids that were supposed to be background noise grow up to become the kind of humans I hope to have one day. They are precious, delightful, and bright. I adore them.''

The "Scream Queens" actor also added a tear-jerking caption to his post. He penned, ''Watching Mary-Kate and Ashley grow into the incredibly bright and remarkable women they are today has been one of the greatest joys of my life.'"

He continued, ''If you would have told me those blue-eyed babies I met on set nearly 40 years ago would still be in my life at 60 years old, I wouldn't have believed you. I am blessed.'' Concluding his post by celebrating Olsen for becoming a first-time mom, he wrote, ''Congratulations to Ashley and her husband, Louis, who welcomed their baby boy last week.''

Last week, TMZ reported that the ''New York Minute'' actress and her husband, Louis Eisner, gave birth to a boy named Otto a few months ago in New York. 

The publication further revealed that they tried to reach out to Ashley's rep for comment, but they got no word back. However, they noted that sources confirmed that the new parents were ecstatic over the new addition to their family.

The news outlet also disclosed that the former actress and her husband have been very private with their relationship, except for a few times when they were spotted out together in NYC.

Stamos Revealed He Was Upset After The Twins Turned Down 'Full House' Sequel Invitation

While the trio are now cordial with one another, this was not the case during the shooting of ''Fuller House,'' a Netflix reboot of the hit '90s show. Stamos confessed his feelings while appearing on an episode of the ''And That's What You REALLY Missed'' podcast.

He admitted that he first felt ''angry'' after he found out that Ashley and Mary-Kate declined the offer to return to the show.

The ''Fuller House'' actor remarked, ''The twins moved to New York. And I gotta tell you, one of the only good things to come out of Bob's [death] well… Mary-Kate and Ashley, we didn't see them much. I mean, we stayed in touch a little bit, but Bob really did. And they were so great. You hear rumors, 'Oh, they hated their childhood, or they hated being on the show or whatever.'''

He continued, ''When I did 'Fuller House,' they didn't wanna come back. And I was angry for a minute. And that got out.'' The actor noted that ''Full House'' costar Bob Saget had been ''very instrumental'' in keeping the cast together, and his death brought about a moment between Stamos and the Olsen sisters where they had a frank discussion about the show. 

Describing how he and the siblings harmonized, he said, ''But they were, like, 'We loved our childhood. We loved being with you. We miss Bob.' They came over to my house. They brought a pork chop and sage. I don't know why, but thank you? It was a frozen pork chop, so that was really nice. So we stayed very close.''
