Uncle Jesse isn’t just an uncle anymore, and one of John StamosFull House nieces, Candace Cameron Bure, tells Life & Style she has full confidence in him as a father.

“He’s going to be an amazing dad!” she tells Life & Style. “He’s already the best uncle there is, so he has lots of experience.”

John, 54, and wife Caitlin McHugh, 31, welcomed son Billy in April. “They’re great people,” says Candace, author of Kind Is the New Classy, “so their little Billy is going to be very loved and he’s going to be taught to show love.”

Candace, 42, has three teens, but she doesn’t plan to give John any parenting tips. “I don’t like to offer my advice unless I’m asked for it,” she tells Life & Style. “My best advice to new parents is: Just do what works best for you.”
