This will be Jodie’s third marriage. She already has a two-year-old daughter with second husband Cody Herpin.

Things got out of hand for Sweetin as she became a drug addict leading her into a rehab in 2005. Life looked up for the star after that. She remarried and had a daughter and even got offers for TV and film. She hosted a Fuse TV show Pants-Off Dance-Off and acted in Port City.
