24 years ago today: Uncle Jesse and Becky’s twins were born on ‘Full House’

24 years ago today, Uncle Jesse took a new step as a dad when his and Becky”s twins were born in a season 5 episode of “Full House.”

With two back-to-back episodes penned by series creator Jeff Franklin, the November 12, 1991 hour of “Full House” started with Michelle”s fifth birthday party, featuring a series of flashbacks about the character played by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Michelle, afraid of losing her status as the baby of the family since Becky”s pregnant, declares she”s going to stay four years old. But another series of flashbacks changes her mind. When Becky”s babies come earlier than expected, Michelle ends up sharing her birthday with the twins, and she wonders whether that will be a good thing. When Jesse – who has spent the episode dealing with sympathy pains – tells Michelle that this will mean three birthday cakes, she says, “That”s a very good thing.”
