Danny Tanner certainly picked a real winner for his second time down the aisle. Eva LaRue will play the new Mrs. Tanner when the "Full House" story picks up in the Netflix reboot, "Fuller House."
The "CSI: Miami" alum announced the news herself on Twitter.

Thank you! It's been such a blast to work with this talented, funny cast! ❤️ https://t.co/JYMTTo9yLT — Eva LaRue (@ImEvaLaRue) July 28, 2015
Teri was originally described as a 40-year-old African-American woman, unlike LaRue, who has a mixed ancestry of Puerto Rican, French, Dutch and Scottish. She definitely fits the rest of the description, calling Danny's new bride "attractive, vivacious... and young."
So far, LaRue joins a cast that only includes stars from the "Full House." The new Netflix series has not announced casting choices for DJ's two sons, Jesse Daniel a.k.a. JD and Max as well as Kimmy's teenage daughter, Ramona, and ex-husband, Fernando.
Production on "Fuller House" got underway this week with many of the actors sharing photos from set. John Stamos even dedicated his Twitter page to his on-screen wife Lori Loughlin on Tuesday to celebrate her birthday, but Bob Saget, who plays Danny, and LaRue have not snapped a photo together yet.
Headlines & Global News spoke with the 48-year-old actress earlier this year about her renewed focus on her health and diet as well as taking care of her teenage daughter. She took a break from acting after CBS cancelled "CSI: Miami" in 2012 and finished going through a painful divorce last year.
"Fuller House" will premiere next year on Netflix.
