Lara Melanie Saget is the daughter of Bob Saget, the late American comedian and actor whose real name was Robert Lane Saget.
The iconic and eccentric comedian is best known to the world for his iconic role as Danny Tanner in the NBC sitcom known as Full House. Following the rather heart-breaking death of the actor in January 2022, a lot of focus has been placed on the family members he left behind. Join us to explore all there is to know about the late comedian’s middle daughter, Lara Melanie Saget.
Lara Melanie Saget is 34 Years Old
Lara Melanie Saget was born on October 16, 1989, in Los Angeles, California, United States. She is 34 years old and was born under the birth sign of Libra.
Lara is a Caucasian American citizen. She is the second of three daughters born to the late American comedian/actor Bob Saget, the actor behind the iconic character Danny Tanner in the NBC sitcom Full House.
Lara Melanie Saget’s Mother was a Lawyer
Born August 8, 1956, Lara Melanie’s mother is a former lawyer named Sherri Kramer. Not much is known about her birth family, but she reportedly acquired her law degree from the University of Pennsylvania before she was called to the California Bar in 1981.
Current unverified reports claim that Lara’s mother is no longer active as a lawyer and that she now works as a licensed Los Angeles-based Marriage and Family therapist. Sources close to the family also revealed that Sherri is currently single.
Her parents met in high school when her father was just 17 years old, and they dated all through the 1970s before exchanging marital vows on May 16, 1982. The marriage produced three children, all girls.
As previously mentioned, Lara Saget is the middle child of the Saget brood. She has an older sister named Aubrey Saget, who is a successful New York-based artist, and a younger sister named Jennifer Belle Saget. Not much is known about Jennifer as she prefers to fly under the radar.
Lara Saget’s parents were still happily married at the time of her birth in 1989, but even she couldn’t have known that that seemingly perfect home would be disintegrated by her parent’s divorce on November 17, 1997, just over one month after her 8th birthday celebration.
Bob Saget’s Daughter is a Master’s Degree Holder
Despite having to watch the break-up of her home at a very impressionable age, Lara still had a healthy and discontent-free childhood. This was primarily due to the fact that her parents found a way to co-exist as friends primarily for the sake of the children, including Lara, they had together.
Important details of Lara’s formal education background, such as where she got her high school diploma, have been skipped over by the media and the public and have instead been replaced with details of her formal education background after high school.
Her social media profile (Facebook) has revealed that in 2018 she acquired a Master’s degree in Fine Arts from New York University, a few years after earning her Bachelor’s degree in Art History and Visual Arts from Barnard College, Columbia University.

Armed with the knowledge she had added to her already inherent talent, Lara Saget has carved out a place for herself in the world of visual and fine arts. With a talent that is clear for all to see, Lara knew she wanted to become an artist from a very young age.

Lara Melani Saget Lost Her Dad in January 2022
The world lost one of its most talented comedians on January 9, 2022, when it was announced that Bob Saget had passed on. He had been found dead in his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton on that fateful morning. It was suspected that the late comedian might have overdosed on drugs, but further investigation and a subsequent autopsy revealed that he most likely slipped and hit his head.
The world mourns and misses Bob, but the truth remains that no one would have felt the impact of his death as much as his family members, including Lara Melanie, who was left devastated by the death of her father.
