John Stamos is taken, ladies and gentlemen.

The actor confirmed he’s seeing someone during a Friday appearance on “The View.” The topic came up when co-host Joy Behar insisted on asking the “Grandfathered” and “Fuller House” star a burning question: "Do you like your women submissive or dominant?”

“I just like my women, either way,” the 52-year-old said, before launching into a spiel about his busy schedule juggling both sitcoms and now touring with the Beach Boys, which he said is his “all-time favorite thing,” which segued into how he keeps his lady-friend in the fold.

“The other night, I grabbed my phone because there’s this girl I’m dating,” he said, as women in the audience shrieked with excitement. "But she loves this song ‘Disney Girl.’ So I grabbed my phone and put it in front of [me] to shoot the whole thing. I thought I got away with it. And people were like, ‘Who are you FaceTiming?’”

The mystery woman, apparently. Though it’s still unclear if it’s the same one he was spotted shopping with last December.

And for those hoping that she’s Aunt Becky, you’d be mistaken. Stamos and his “Full House” costar Lori Loughlin, while meant to be on the show and almost meant to be in real life, did date in the past but could never actually make their romance work. (He’s previously described her as “the one that got away.”) Years later, Stamos had been married to actress-model Rebecca Romijn while Loughlin was single, and Loughlin got married when Stamos was back on the market.

Meanwhile, the TV actor has been everywhere while promoting his shows and tour -- the women “come along” he quipped on “The View.”

“Fuller House,” the Netflix reboot of the beloved 1990s sitcom that debuted late last month, has already been renewed for a second season despite scathing reviews from critics.

Stamos, privy to those reviews, even read a few of them on “Late Night With Seth Meyers” on Thursday, but was a good sport about those that decided not to have mercy on the nostalgic show.

“You know what, the fans love the show, and after only four or five days, Netflix said, ‘Let’s do a second season,’ so I thank the fans for that,” Stamos told the host.

Something fans don’t love, though, is the fact that twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen did not reprise their role of Michelle Tanner in the first season because, both on the show and in real life, they’re working on their fashion empire in New York.

Stamos said that he’s not above begging them to return for Season 2.

“They’re totally welcome. I was going to see Ashley last night and beg her to be on the show,” Stamos said on the “Today” show on Thursday. “We would love to have them. I know everybody would love to see them. I have a good feeling about it.”


Series creator Jeff Franklin also echoed the sentiments and remained hopeful that they could work out something in Season 2. But a source told E! News  that their decision to stay off the show hasn’t changed.
