She may have been one of TV’s most iconic childhood actors, but now, Candace Cameron Bure — who played the beloved role of DJ Tanner on Full House from 1987 to 1995 — has children of her own! After years of starring on the hit American sitcom, Candace has since met her husband of nearly 25 years, Valeri Bure, and together, they created one loving family.
The actress married her Russian ice hockey player hubby in 1996 and welcomed their first child, Natasha Bure, in 1998. They later welcomed their second kiddo, son Lev Bure in 2000, followed by their youngest, Maksim Bure, in 2002.
Throughout the years, Candace has enjoyed plenty of great moments with her spouse and children. The Aurora Teagarden Mysteries actress said their family had no shortage of fun while quarantining amid the coronavirus pandemic in 2020.
“We’ve just been enjoying time together — cooking meals and playing lots of board games and watching Netflix,” Candace exclusively gushed to Closer Weekly in May 2020. “I’m very thankful that I have my family.”
But when Natasha and her siblings turn the TV on, they don’t like to watch anything their mom is starring in. “It’s like banned in my house,” the Hallmark star joked. “None of my family ever wants to watch me on television! I think because they see my face every day … they’re like, ‘Mom, we don’t want to watch you on TV too.’”
However, it wasn’t too difficult keeping her children entertained in other ways. At the time the family was social distancing together at Candace and Val’s California home, she revealed Natasha was teaching her how to pose for photos on social media. “She’s got all kinds of things going on,” the Fuller House alum said about her daughter. “So I think I take more lessons from her.”
Though Candace shares a great relationship with her YouTube star daughter, the Emmy nominee said there is one thing the two don’t really talk about: dating. While Candace wishes her daughter would come to her for advice about boys, she said Natasha hasn’t been dating that much to begin with.
“I love that because she’s picky in a good way,” the actress dished. “She’s not going to date anyone just to date them, but momma’s still waiting.”
