Kelly Rizzo has started dating two years after Bob Saget’s unexpected death.

The Full House star tragically passed away on January 9, 2022, in his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida, at the age of 65. His cause of death was later listed as accidental head trauma.

In March of last year, Rizzo shared that she was not yet considering dating, over a year after Saget’s death. She took to Instagram for a public “14.5 month grief check-in,” as she called it.

When one fan asked if she was dating again, she responded, “OK, here we go. I have gotten this question hundreds, hundreds of times since the beginning.”

She clarified that she had not started dating again. “No, I have not. I have not. I have not,” she said at the time. “I couldn’t even think about that. It was not even in my psyche to even cross that bridge and the thought of anything serious anytime soon, I can’t even process. It’s just so complicated, so many emotions attached to that.”

While she wasn’t ready to date at the time, she did express openness to the idea in the future. “I will say, it does get a little bit lonely, so the thought of a coffee or a hike or something like that, I’d be open to,” she shared. “But yeah, there’s a lot of ins, a lot of outs, a lot of what-have-you,” she added.

Now, it seems the time has come…

Kelly Rizzo has stepped out with her new love, Breckin Meyer.

She posed with her new boyfriend for photos on Sunday as they attended the Jam for Janie GRAMMY Awards Viewing Party at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. The couple had their arms around each other as they walked the red carpet.

If Breckin Meyer looks familiar, it’s because he is! He’s an actor known for his roles in Clueless and the live-action Garfield movies.

At 44 years old, Rizzo was stunning in a body-hugging leopard-print dress paired with knee-high black leather boots, while Meyer opted for a casual look with gray khakis, a gray denim jacket, and a gray t-shirt. Media outlets have confirmed that the two are dating.

Previously, when asked if she was dating again after her husband’s sudden passing, Rizzo had responded, “OK, here we go. I have gotten this question hundreds, hundreds of times since the beginning.” She clarified that she had not started dating again.

“No, I have not. I have not. I have not,” she said at the time. “I couldn’t even think about that. It was not even in my psyche to even cross that bridge, and the thought of anything serious anytime soon, I can’t even process. It’s just so complicated, so many emotions attached to that.”

While she wasn’t ready to date then, she did express openness to the idea in the future. “I will say, it does get a little bit lonely, so the thought of a coffee or a hike or something like that, I’d be open to,” she shared. “But yeah, there’s a lot of ins, a lot of outs, a lot of what-have-you.”

Bob Saget and Kelly Rizzo were married for four years before his death in 2022.

We wish Kelly Rizzo the best of luck! Moving on is never easy, but we hope she finds happiness in whatever she aims to do.
