Former Full House star Jodie Sweetin has a new role that comes with a full heart: mother to 7-week-old daughter Zoie.
"You look at your baby and think, 'Wow, I did that.' It's really amazing," Sweetin, 26, tells PEOPLE in its new cover story, on sale Friday.
As Zoie happily snoozes on the shoulder of her dad, Sweetin's husband of 10 months Cody Herpin, the marveling mother says, "I'm still like, 'Oh, wow, I'm a mom.' It's the most overwhelming, exciting thing I've ever done."
And a far cry from where she's been.
Best known for playing spunky middle child Stephanie on Full House from age 5 to 13, Sweetin then landed a real-life role that cast her against type: battling an addiction to crystal meth.

For years fans knew Jodie Sweetin for her role as cherub-faced Stephanie Tanner on the hit show Full House. But after growing up on television, Sweetin returned to the public eye earlier this year with the startling admission that she had a two-year addiction to crystal meth. Now clean and sober, the 24-year-old is the host of Fuse's wildly popular show Pants-Off Dance-Off, which features average folks – called "pancers" – stripping to their favorite music video (the second season kicks off Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET). PEOPLE.com recently visited Sweetin on the Pants-Off set and got the scoop about her music to strip to and keeping up with her Full House family.
