Former child star Jodie Sweetin from the hit series Full House talks to People Magazine about how she used to be a crystal meth head drug addict and now she's a new mom. Are we missing something about the big deal she had a baby? Meth heads and crackheads have babies everyday they just don't end up on the cover of a major magazine. The world's pregnant man/woman Thomas Beattie became newsworthy because he/she is having a baby and going to be the child's mother & father. If you missed it the first time then tune into Oprah for the re-airing of the episode next week. We wish to congratulate Jodie on having the baby and for stay drug free.
Former Full House star Jodie Sweetin has a new role that comes with a full heart: mother to 7-week-old daughter Zoie.
"You look at your baby and think, 'Wow, I did that.' It's really amazing," Sweetin, 26, tells PEOPLE in its new cover story, on sale Friday.
As Zoie happily snoozes on the shoulder of her dad, Sweetin's husband of 10 months Cody Herpin, the marveling mother says, "I'm still like, 'Oh, wow, I'm a mom.' It's the most overwhelming, exciting thing I've ever done."
And a far cry from where she's been. Best known for playing spunky middle child Stephanie on Full House from age 5 to 13, Sweetin then landed a real-life role that cast her against type: battling an addiction to crystal meth. At 22, Sweetin was a college student married to LAPD officer Shaun Holguin and taking a break from acting when she first tried the drug. Six months later, she had developed a crippling daily habit that she kept secret from her husband. That is, until in 2005, when she was hospitalized after a night of partying. source
