She shared a quotation from the famed romantic comedy When Harry Met Sally, ‘For some of us, it can feel like we spend our whole lives waiting for our special someone. My heart, my love – I’m so happy my life started last year with you. You’re the best thing that ever happened to me.’

Aduba added: ‘For some of us, it can feel like we spend our whole lives waiting for our special someone. My heart, my love – I’m so happy my life started last year with you. You’re the best thing that ever happened to me.’

In a post on his Instagram page, Sweetin wrote, ‘One year ago I married this gorgeous, talented and incredible woman. This past year has made me appreciate the fragile nature of life and the importance of living it.’

He continued: ‘At a time where the world is upside down, we learned to find joy and peace in each other. You are the greatest person I’ve ever know and I’m proud to be your husband.’

Aduba is up for an Emmy next week for her portrayal of Dr. Brooke Taylor on the HBO show In Treatment. She’s past collected Emmys for her work on the FX show Mrs. America, and two Emmys for her work on Orange Is the New Black.

She began working on In Treatment less than two weeks after the death of her mother Nonyem.

Speaking with ET earlier this year, she lauded her late parent for her support and instilling confidence in her.

‘The simple truth is, I would not be here without that woman,’ Aduba said. ‘Period. End of story. I’ve never had a greater champion, a bigger supporter. She inspired me and encouraged me and my siblings every step of the way into believing that anything was possible that we could be and do anything even before I believed it.’
