John Stamos’ desperate “deathbed vow” to his dying mom has left him shattered and looking for love! In an emotional final promise to his mother, Loretta, the “Full House” star, 52, agreed to finally settle down and start a family.
But friends told The National ENQUIRER John is tearing his heart out over the unfulfilled pledge!
John’s mom died from cancer in September 2014, sending him into a downward spiral that resulted in a DUI arrest in June.
He later checked into rehab for a month to battle substance abuse.
“John yearns for a family life, but he’s scared to death of it,” said a pal.
John was married to model/actress Rebecca Romijn until 2005.
She now has 6-year-old twin girls with second husband Jerry O’Connell.
“John looks at Rebecca and Jerry’s family and wonders, ‘That could have been my life,’” said the source.
“I feel super young … It’s a blessing and a curse,” John recently admitted to radio host Ryan Seacrest. “It’s time to grow up and act like an adult.”
Added the source: “John desperately wants to honor his mom’s wishes and insists he doesn’t want to grow old alone.”
But unless things change, pals worry he’ll get a lifetime pass to the lonely hearts club!
