The actor explains he had to visit a sperm bank while he and his wife Caitlin McHugh were trying to conceive their son Billy and when he turned on the TV for "stimulation" his Netflix show was playing.
"This is an absolutely true story and I've been waiting to tell this story...," he told U.S. talk show "Busy Tonight" on Monday, November 06. "Trying to get pregnant and we had to do a thing, and we had to go to a fertility... place. And I had to go give a sperm sample. I can't believe I'm finally getting to tell this story..."
"I went into this little room where they go, 'Go in there...' And they said, 'If you need any stimulation or whatever there's videos and there's a TV here, just turn the thing.' I turn the TV on and it's on 'Fuller House', and I'm like, 'If I'm going to masturbate to myself it's going to be my old self, not the new one.' "
The actor played Jesse Katsopolis on "Full House" from 1987 to 1995 and he reprised his role in "Fuller House" in 2016 and 2017.
