Now a veterinarian and also a widow, D.J. calls upon her extended family to help raise her children -- the rebellious 12-year-old Jackson (Michael Champion), neurotic 7-year-old Max (Elias Harger) and her newborn baby, Tommy Jr (played by, you got it dude, twins). D.J.'s younger sister/aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and D.J.'s lifelong best friend/fellow single mother Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber), as well as Kimmy's feisty teenage daughter Ramona (Soni Nicole Bringas), are there to help.
