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 23 years, Valeri Bure, and together created one loving family.
The 43-year-old beauty, who is now starring in Netflix’s Fuller House, married her Russian ice hockey player hubby in 1996 and welcomed their first child, Natasha Bure, 20, in 1998. Now that her kiddos are getting older, Candace — who is also mom to Lev Bure, 19, and Maksim Bure, 17 — opened up last November about preparing herself for an empty nest.
“It’s sad to think that my kids aren’t going to be in my house every day,” she admitted to Us Weekly at the time. The gorgeous mama gushed that although she’s going to miss them like crazy, watching them grow up has been one of the greatest pleasures she’s ever experienced. “I love seeing what kind of mark they’re going to make on the world.” So sweet!
