Aubrey and her sisters developed a close bond with Rizzo after the blogger began dating Saget in 2015.

"Kelly and my daughters love each other, so it really is some magical thing that happened," the 'Fuller House' alum told Us Weekly in April 2018. 

"They just love each other."The Illinois native chimed in, "He has three girls and I`m super close with them." 

Rizzo went on to say that she and her husband were not interested in having children of their own, choosing to "enjoy life and travel around" instead.

The couple got engaged in November 2017. "The story goes ... when he proposed he got on one knee and said, 'I want to spend whatever years I have left with you,'" the bride reflected via Instagram the following year."

I made him rephrase it of course. But seriously -- I can't wait to spend COUNTLESS years of [love] and [laughter] with you," she added at the time. The duo wed in October 2018 in California.
