Have mercy!

John Stamos and Caitlin McHugh are engaged. The Full House and Fuller House star confirmed the news with a magical sketch of him and his fiancée at Disneyland. But this wasn't just any ordinary illustration. The amazing art was created by Paul Briggs—a legendary animator who's worked on Disney box office hits like Frozen, Big Hero 6 and Tangled.

"I asked...she said yes! ...And we lived happily ever after," the Uncle Jesse character captioned the photo.


I asked...she said yes! ...And we lived happily ever after??

Stamos' rep also confirmed the proposal, and it looks like the actor pulled out all the stops when it came to popping the big question.

"John proposed to his girlfriend Caitlin McHugh on Sunday afternoon at Disneyland." Stamos' rep said. "He cut together a film of some of the most romantic moments in Disney and Pixar animation. The film concluded with Sebastian from The Little Mermaid encouraging John to ‘Just ask the girl.' Caitlin said yes, then John whisked her to 21 Royal where they shared the news and celebrated with their families."

21 Royal is Disney's exclusive dining experience.

Celebs Who Helped People Carry Out Wedding Proposals

Disney is a special place for Stamos and McHugh. The actor and actress have taken several trips to the park together, and they've enjoyed many of the rides.

Stamos also has a very impressive collection of Disney memorabilia. On The View, Stamos told the hosts that he had a letter D from the original Disneyland sign, which he said he won on eBay. The item was in such high demand, he said, that even Michael Jackson bid on it. He also has a giant Dumbo in his yard. 

In addition, the 48 Hours to Live actress is known for owning her fair share of Disney costumes.

The couple has been dating since March 2016. To see their magical fairytale romance, check out the gallery.
