Fans have voiced their support for Kelly Rizzo, the widow of the late Bob Saget, after she made her new relationship Instagram official.

The Full House actor tragically passed away in January 2022 in Florida due to an unexpected fall in his hotel room, resulting in a fatal head trauma.

In a statement released by the family shortly after his sudden death, they confirmed the heartbreaking news and the circumstances surrounding the 65-year-old's death.

"Now that we have the final conclusions from the authorities' investigation, we felt it only proper that the fans hear those conclusions directly from us," the family said. "They have concluded that he accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it, and went to sleep. No drugs or alcohol were involved."

The late comedian began dating Kelly Rizzo in 2015. The couple tied the knot in 2018. 

In September 2023, the 44-year-old opened up about struggling to move on romantically after her ex-husband's death.

"You get to a point where you separate what earthly Bob would have been like," she told the Daily Mail. "And he would have been like, 'You can't move on! How dare you! How could you!'

"But when I hear his friends and family say, 'No, he would want you to be happy,' and when you get to that point, then you feel at peace with that happening," she added.

On Tuesday (May 7), the 44-year-old took to Instagram to make her relationship with Breckin Meyer official on the social media platform.

Sharing a photo of the couple at the Miami Grand Prix, the blogger wished a happy 50th birthday to the Clueless star, describing him as "the man who is kind, sweet, silly, thoughtful, completely hilarious, handsome, understanding, charming, forever curious, compassionate, witty, warm & wonderful".

Rizzo first confirmed her romance with the 50-year-old Garfield actor at Steven Tyler’s annual Grammy Awards viewing party. The couple made their public debut, walking hand in hand on the red carpet at a Janie’s Fund charity event.

Speaking to E! News, she opened up about the emotional process of reaching this point in her love life. "It took a while to get to the point where I’m like, ‘OK, I think he’d be happy with it’," she shared.

Saget's daughters - Aubrey, 36, Lara, 34, and Jennifer, 31 - have given their blessing to Rizzo's new relationship, a gesture that deeply touched her.

"It’s wonderful, it just meant so much to have their blessing," Rizzo told the publication. "They’re just angels. And to have them support is so meaningful."

She expressed that getting their heartfelt support is very important to her, telling Fox News Digital: "To hear it from them is just a totally different level.

"And it meant the world just to hear, ‘Hey, we trust you. We love you. We know you’re going to do what’s right, and we want you to be happy,'" she added.
