Stephanie Tanner is ready to shake it! Jodie Sweetin confirmed her Dancing With the Stars gig during Good Morning America on Wednesday, March 2, and revealed which pro she’ll be paired up with on season 22.
“I’m dancing with Keo [Motsepe],” the Fuller House actress, 34, said. “We have just had the first couple of days. It’s so fun! We got through some basic moves of several different styles of dance. We had a lot of fun and he and I get along really well. And he’s really excited that maybe we’ll get the chance to get past maybe week three or four. He’s a phenomenal dancer and just a doll.”
Us Weekly exclusively broke the news last month that the Full House alum would be joining season 22 of the ABC series. Sweetin always wanted to sign on, but prior commitments often got in the way.
“I would have loved to have done it in the past, but it was a huge scheduling conflict with Fuller House at the time, so I just was unable to do it. I’m a huge fan of the show, so this is really exciting,” she said on Wednesday.

Netflix’s Full House 13-episode revival premiered last week. On the show, Sweetin cuts some dance moves with DWTS vet Val Chmerkovskiy. “I was like, Ugh! I love this, I want to do this for sure,” she recalled of their scenes together. (Fuller House was also picked up for a second season on Wednesday.)
And she’ll have a cheering section when she does. Sweetin gushed that her fiancé, Justin Hodak, is in her corner. (The couple got engaged in January after two years of dating.) “He’s incredibly supportive and so excited for me,” she said on GMA.
Her Fuller House costar Candace Cameron Bure — who was paired with Mark Ballas on DWTS‘ season 18 — is also thrilled. “She’s been really great and excited for me,” Sweetin said. “She’s shared with me that this is going to be one of the most exciting, overwhelming, physically and mentally demanding things I’ll ever do, but that it’s incredibly worth it.”
