Bob Saget’s Widow Debuts New Relationship With ’90s Star 2 Years After His Death


It’s now been two years since the death of Bob Saget, after the beloved comedian was found dead in his room at a Ritz-Carlton hotel in Orange County, FL, following a stand-up set. Just a few years before his passing, Saget had married his second wife, television host Kelly Rizzo, in October 2018. And this weekend, Rizzo revealed that she had found love once again with actor Breckin Meyer.

Meyer, 49, is perhaps best known for starring in ’90s comedies such as Clueless (1995) and The Craft (1996). He also starred alongside Mark-Paul Gosselaar in the legal comedy-drama Franklin & Bash from 2011 to 2014. The couple made their red carpet debut at Steven Tyler’s annual Jam for Janie GRAMMY Awards event on Sunday at the Hollywood Palladium.

Rizzo told E! News that it took her some time to start dating after Saget’s death. “It took a while to get to the point where I’m like, ‘OK, I think he’d be happy with it,” she admitted. Though, she says that it helped that the Full House star’s adult daughters, Aubrey, 36, Lara, 34, and Jennifer, 31, were on board with her new romance.

“It’s wonderful, it just meant so much to have their blessing,” she added. “They’re just angels. And to have them support is so meaningful.”

In January, Rizzo marked the two-year anniversary of Saget’s death in an Instagram post, noting that the time has felt both like “a week and an eternity.”

“I will forever be grateful that I got to share life with this extraordinary person for six years,” she wrote. “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.”

“I’m still blown away by the fact that Bob hasn’t faded from all of your hearts in the slightest,” she continued. “It means so very much. Thank you for allowing me to still share Bob and thank you all for continuing to keep his memory alive.”
