While this casting has been heavily rumored, nothing was for sure until the Full House star herself confirmed the news on Good Morning America.
The 34-year-old is the first official member of the spring cast, and as she told the GMA hosts, she's a "huge fan of the show" and is very excited to see what she can do in the ballroom.
"I've always loved to dance," she explained, adding that she did dance some growing up, so she at least has rhythm.

She also revealed her partner: Keo Motsepe!
This is a big deal for the South African pro. He has competed in the past three seasons, but has never been given a contender before, and the best he's ever placed is 11th.
The Fuller House actress, with her nostalgia factor, likeable personality, and basic dance skills, is basically guaranteed to get much further in the competition than that!
