Two years after her husband, Bob Saget, was found dead at 65, Kelly Rizzo confirmed her new relationship with actor Breckin Meyer at Steven Tyler’s annual Grammy Awards viewing party.
The 49-year-old Clueless star and Rizzo made their red carpet debut while holding hands at a Janie’s Fund charity event.
“It took a while to get to the point where I’m like, ‘OK, I think he’d be happy with it’” Rizzo told E! News.
Saget’s three daughters — Aubrey, 36, Lara, 34, and Jennifer, 31 — gave the 44-year-old widow their blessing.
“It’s wonderful, it just meant so much to have their blessing,” Rizzo told E! “They’re just angels. And to have them support is so meaningful.”
Rizzo previously told People about her relationship with Saget’s children as she continues to mourn the loss of her partner so soon after his death.
Just, I mean, every day — it’s not even every year — it’s just every day, he’s just still such a big part of my life,” she says. “And I love being close to his girls and his daughters. And just honouring him with just little things that I do all day every day. He’s never going anywhere.”
She also revealed that even though she didn’t need his children’s permission, having their blessing was important to her.
“I’d love to think that Bob would want me to be happy too, but to hear it from them is just a totally different level,” Rizzo told Fox News Digital in December. “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.’”
The second anniversary of Saget’s death was in January 2024 and Rizzo honoured him with a lengthy message about their six years together.
“2 years. Wow. Simultaneously feels like a week and an eternity,” she captioned a post of Saget with a guitar. “I chose this photo of Bob as not only was it the last photo he shared and one of the last texts he sent me, but it perfectly encapsulates how he would want all of us to remember him. With his guitar, on a stage, doing what he loved to do … making people laugh … making people happy.
“I’m still blown away by the fact that Bob hasn’t faded from all of your hearts in the slightest,” she added. “It means so very much. Thank you for allowing me to still share Bob and thank you all for continuing to keep his memory alive.”
