John Stamos says he's on "cloud nine" after recently getting engaged to Caitlin McHugh.

Indeed, the "Full House" star said he "prayed and hoped" he would one day be with a woman like McHugh,31.

“I’ve been waiting for the perfect girl for over a decade and she walked into my life," he told People magazine Tuesday. "I mean everybody knows that I’ve always loved family, and I wanted to have a family some day and get married again, and everyone’s like, ‘Why don’t you just do it!? Why don’t you just do it!?’”

Stamos, 54, shared the good news earlier this week, posting, "I asked...she said yes! ...And we lived happily ever after."

“Everybody thinks it’s so easy," he added to People about finding love. "The hard part was me. Like I wasn’t the best me. I was ready, but no one as perfect as Caitlin — a true, pure beautiful person inside — would’ve never gone for the old me, a few years ago ... And I know my parents are up there watching, so I think they delivered an angel to me.”

McHugh also posted her own picture from the proposal, with, "I kissed the boy and said...yes! That’s what you do when the sweetest, most romantic Prince Charming treats you like a princess and asks you to be his."

This will be the actor's second wedding after his marriage to Rebecca Romijn from 1998 to 2005.
