Taking about her engagement and Saget's death, Sweetin, in a conversation with Entertainment Tonight in February 2022, said:
"We get to talk about being happy. Life is really painful, and then life all of a sudden throws you great joy, and that's sort of the adventure of this. You just have to keep and trust that even in the bad times, it will get good again. You can make it through the bad times 'cause there's something good on the other side."
