Bob Saget’s wife Kelly Rizzo has spoken out for the first time since his death, stating she is ‘completely shattered’ and in ‘disbelief’. 

The Full House actor was found dead in a hotel room in Orlando, Florida on Sunday, with a cause of death yet to be determined. 

As tributes continued to pour in for the beloved comedian, Saget’s wife Rizzo released her first statement to People about the devastating news. 

‘My whole heart. Bob was my absolute everything,’ she began. ‘I am so completely shattered and in disbelief. I am so deeply touched by the outpouring of love and tribute from our friends, family, his fans and his peers.’ 

The Eat Travel Rock blogger continued: ‘When the time is right and when this news is not as raw, I look forward to sharing more of Bob with the world. 

‘Sharing how much he meant to me, all of those around him, and how much all of his fans and friends meant to him as well. Thank you for respecting my privacy at this time.’ 

Rizzo, 42, and Saget, who was 65, met in 2015 and married in 2018. The lifestyle blogger was Saget’s second wife, as he was previously married to Sherri Kramer, with whom he shared three daughters; Aubrey, Lara and Jennifer. 

Rizzo regularly shared social media posts featuring Saget and in December, shared a sweet photo of them holding hands by the Christmas tree.

She revealed in the caption: ‘Merry Christmas Eve everyone! 🎄So happy to spend my very first Christmas with @bobsaget (even though we’ve been married over 3 years!) because he’s finally in Chicago for the holidays! 

‘And also special to be at my home away from home @thepeninsulachi – THE most beautiful and festive place for the holidays in all of Chicago. Cheers to everyone on this special holiday. May you all be surrounded by peace and love.’

Saget’s death was announced on Monday when the Orange County Sheriff’s Office released a brief statement confirming there were no signs of foul play or drug use. 

They said: ‘Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call about an unresponsive man in a hotel room. 

‘The man was identified as Robert Saget & pronounced deceased on scene.’ 

Hollywood has been left shocked and saddened by the news, with Jim Carrey, Steve Martin and the Full House cast, including John Stamos, sharing heartfelt tributes to the late actor.
