Stephanie Tanner's house just got a little less full.

Former sitcom star Jodie Sweetin has filed for a legal separation from her husband of 16 months, Cody Herpin, E! News confirms. The duo tied the knot in July 2007 after just two months of dating.

The 26-year-old Sweetin filed the separation papers against her 31-year-old film transportation coordinator husband in Orange County Superior Court on Wednesday. It was the Full House star's second marriage. (View the petition.)

As it is, word of the split comes just seven months after the couple welcomed their first child together, daughter Zoie.

There's no word yet on the cause of the split, or whether a divorce is in the offing.

But until now, Sweetin has done nothing but sing the praises of her former beau, crediting Herpin with helping her overcome a nasty crystal meth habit.

The details of both her addiction and her relationship with Herpin will likely be among the juicy topics covered in her upcoming memoir, which will also detail Sweetin's time on the family-friendly sitcom costarring Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen.

A spokeswoman for Simon Spotlight Entertainment confirmed to E! News earlier this month that Sweetin signed a book deal with the publisher to chronicle "her downward spiral of drug and alcohol abuse that began when the show ended, and her path to sobriety."

Tentatively titled Wild Card, the book is due out in October 2009.
