Kelly Rizzo Says She Still ‘Talks’ to Bob Saget

Kelly Rizzo recently spoke about the relationship she now has with Bob Saget now that he has passed away. “It’s like, he’s still my husband. It’s not like, ‘Oh he’s my former husband.’ It’s like… The relationship is different now. It’s just – it is what it is.”

Kelly Rizzo and Bob Saget met in 2015. Rizzo is 23 years younger than Bob Saget. She was 36 when she met close to 60-year-old Saget. The couple got engaged in 2017 and were married in 2018. 

Along with Kelly Rizzo, Bob Saget is survived by his three daughters, Aubrey, 35, Lara, 32, and Jennifer, 29 whom he shares with his ex-wife, Sherri Kramer. Rizzo also stated that Saget’s daughters came to stay with her when she moved into her new house. “They walked in and I was like, ‘So it’s kind of like a museum to your dad, so don’t freak out but yes, he’s everywhere’. And then they’ll catch me, like, talking to a picture every once in a while, and they’re like, ‘Stepmommy Kelly, are you OK?’”

Rizzo notably moved out of the home she and Saget shared. She revealed the news through an Instagram Q&A. “So, yes, I moved – you figured it out,” she said at the time.
