Kelly Rizzo marked Bob Saget’s 66th birthday with her daughters at one of her favorite restaurants.
After posting a sweet tribute to her late husband on social media, and sharing others from Saget’s friends and the Full house family – the eat trip rock The TV host donned her “Hug like Bob Saget” sweatshirt, designed by Candace Cameron Bure, and stepped out to celebrate the comedian, who died in January from an accidental closed head injury.
Rizzo dined at Craig’s in West Hollywood, which was one of Saget’s all-time favorite restaurants and where he was a regular customer. She was flanked by family and friends, including her daughters Aubrey and Lara Saget, her nephew Adam Saget and her best friend Jeff Ross.
They even ordered dessert in a martini glass (Saget loved martinis) with a birthday candle.
“I miss you Bob, but we know you’re here!” read the caption of the photo shared on the restaurant’s Instagram page.
Rizzo later posed next to Saget’s image at the nearby Comedy Store. The site was where a memorial to Saget was held after his death with celebrities including Ross, John Stamos, Jim Carrey, and John Mayer. The tribute was recorded and made into a Netflix special that will air starting June 10.
Earlier in the day, Rizzo, who married Saget in 2018, shared photos from her husband’s last birthday celebration, last year in Mexico.
“We always celebrate our birthdays together with a trip,” she said, noting that her birthday is two days after his. “This last trip was so special. We both celebrated each other so much. You never know when the ‘last’ time will be.”
She told Saget that she missed him “beyond words” and promised, “I know you’d want me to have a martini tonight, so I’ll oblige.”
Last week, in a conversation with fellow widow Amanda Kloots, Rizzo said that, in her opinion, Saget is “still my husband. It’s not like, ‘Oh, he’s my ex-husband.’ It’s like… the relationship It’s different now. It’s just that it is what it is.”
She also talked about moving out of the couple’s house into a new home to help her move on, saying she warned her daughters (also including Jennifer Saget) that the place is a “museum” for Saget.
“His daughters came to stay with me, you know, the first time since I moved into the new house … and they came in and I said, ‘So it’s like a museum for your dad, so don’t do it.'” freak out, but yeah, it’s everywhere,'” she said. “And then they catch me like talking to a picture every once in a while, and they’re like, ‘Stepmom Kelly, are you okay?’ … I still talk to him and I have the pictures of him everywhere.”
Saget died on January 9 at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, where he was staying during his comedy tour. The autopsy revealed that she died of head trauma after an accidental blow to the back of the head.
