During an interview with Entertainment Tonight in 2020 — after the Full House star had been voted off The Masked Singer — he explained he could never imagine leaving his wife, Kelly Rizzo, and daughters Lara, 32, and Jennifer, 29, and Aubrey, 24, behind.

"I've got to live forever, I've got three daughters and a wife and a life, I can't die," Saget hauntingly told the outlet. "I don't know what to do. I've got to live forever."

At the time, the stand-up comedian reportedly emphasized how important it was to let the special people in one's life know how valuable they are: "We all need to be an example for what we wish the world to be which is, you know, caring about other people… When you care about somebody, especially now I'm finding you got to let them know, you got to reach out and then it's nice to get that heart emoji back or whatever you get back."

"I think most people don't reread my texts. That's why I like the texts where you send a heart and then you screen slam it or the whole screen fills with hearts," Saget continued, per the outlet. "That's like that one moment of, 'Oh, I'm getting pixie dust with a heart!' So you know that's when texting is good."
