A broken leg can't stop Jodie Sweetin!
The Fuller House star hobbled along the orange carpet at the 2017 Kids' Choice Awards on Saturday, where she had accessorized her flowy white-and-pink dress with a pair of crutches.
"Even if I didn't want to come, I had to come because my kids wanted to be here," Jodie told
And that's exactly what she did!
Not only did her daughters -- 8-year-old Zoie and 6-year-old Beatrix, whom she shares with ex-husband Cody Herpin and ex-husband Morty Coyle, respectively -- get to attend their very first awards show, Jodie's fiancé, Justin Hodak, also joined them.
Jodie and Justin got engaged in January 2016, but their wedding plans are currently up in the air. "Every time we think about it, it just keeps getting pushed a little bit further," she admitted of a wedding date. "We'll get through the broken leg first."
The 36-year-old actress snapped her ankle and tibia in January while hopping a fence to retrieve a toy for daughter Bea, and she told ET that she'll be on crutches for another three weeks with "no walking."
Well, my day did NOT go as planned!! I was trying to hop a fence to get a little toy that Bea had thrown over it, and on the way back, my dismount sucked. Snapped my ankle and tibia in multiple places and screamed like never before!! So... looks like surgery is in my near future. And probably no tap dancing for a while. But Zoie won all her soccer games and is still going in the next round! #supermom #fencejumpfail #idoallmyownstunts #hopalongcassidy
So, here's my awesome vacation spot for the next 8 weeks or so! Back to the dr tomorrow, most likely surgery to put this little Humpty Dumpty back together again! But @justinhodak_ has been AMAZING through this and I have a long road ahead of me to recover. But I got this!! Thank you for all the love and support, it really does mean the world to me!! This ain't gonna be easy!!! #hopalongcassidy #idoallmyownstunts #netflixbinging #learningtositstill
Fuller House ended up taking home the award for Favorite TV Show -- Family, but on the orange carpet, Jodie admitted to ET that the original Full House series never really got its due on the awards circuit.
"We were always a huge fan favorite but the critics never loved us," she said. "[Fuller House has] been really lucky. We won the People's Choice Awards for Favorite Premium Comedy, we won a Teen Choice Award, we're nominated for a Kids' Choice Award, so fingers crossed we can take it for the sweep. But that's really who our fan base is -- it's the fans, it's the people that watch the show."
Well, Jodie, your triple crown dreams came true!
Fuller House begins filming season three on Monday, and Jodie hopes it will be far from the last one.
"We'd love to do another eight or 10 seasons," she said. "As long as we can come up with really fun story lines, which I don't think there's any shortage of, we'll keep going and as long as the fans love us, we love doing what we do."
