At a 2024 Grammys viewing party, Kelly Rizzo went public with her new relationship, and she has now made her romance with her boyfriend, actor Breckin Meyer, Instagram-official.

The widow of comedian Bob Saget took to social media on Tuesday to extend birthday wishes to her partner, marking their first public post together on the platform. “HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! To the man who is kind, sweet, silly, thoughtful, completely hilarious, handsome, understanding, charming, forever curious, compassionate, witty, warm & wonderful,” Rizzo, 44, posted. “You deserve to be endlessly celebrated today!🎂❤️🎉,” she added.

Speaking to E! of her new relationship, Rizzo said that it took “a while” for her to “get to the point where” she felt comfortable dating again.

Addressing critics who claimed she had moved on too quickly following Bob Saget‘s sudden passing, Rizzo said, “Unless you are a widow or a widower, you truly have absolutely no place and no right to comment on this because you do not know what it’s like.” She added: “You just don’t understand the incredibly complex and difficult and dynamic thoughts and feelings that come up during this entire process.”

Rizzo started dating 18 months after her husband died and she’s grateful she found a partner who understands that Saget is “always going to be a part of my life.”

“He always asks questions about him and keeps him a part of the conversation, and that means so much to me,” she said.

Although Rizzo didn’t need the blessing of Bob’s daughters, it held significance for her to receive their approval, aligning with her sense of what felt appropriate in the situation.

“I’d love to think that Bob would want me to be happy too, but to hear it from them is just a totally different level,” the journalist said. “And it meant the world just to hear, ‘Hey, we trust you. We love you. We know you’re going to do what’s right, and we want you to be happy.’”

Rizzo and Saget were married for four years until his passing in 2022.

As of Rizzo’s new love, Breckin Meyer, he’s best known for the 1990s cult classic Clueless. Meyer is also a writer and a producer, having served as the creator of Men At Work.

Meyer was previously married to filmmaker Deborah Kaplan from 2001 to 2014. The two share two daughters.
