As a successful Hollywood actress, Candace Cameron Bure couldn’t be more excited to watch daughter Natasha follow in her footsteps. The Fuller House star exclusively tells Closer Weekly how she and husband Valeri Bure are doing a “great” job of encouraging their little girl’s acting pursuits.
“My husband’s super supportive of whatever our kids’ dreams are … both of us [are],” Candace, 44, gushes in a new interview, adding her experience as a longtime actress allows 21-year-old Natasha to gain a whole new perspective.
“You know, the good thing is that I’m in this industry and Natasha and I are super close,” the beloved sitcom star — who recently teamed up with The Salvation Army to match donations up to $10,000 amid the worldwide coronavirus pandemic — continues. “We talk about everything.”
Candace adds that Natasha also comes to her and “asks for advice” regarding the business. “She is very trusting of me and my opinions, which as a mom, is wonderful,” the Switched for Christmas actress explains to Closer. “It’s really smart of her.”
So far, the Growing Pains alum — who is also the proud mom of sons Lev, 20, and Maksim, 18 — says Natasha already “has a couple movies that are out now,” including Home Sweet Home, and she’s continuing to audition. “She’s doing her thing. She’s a really great, strong, independent woman and she’s got a good head on her shoulders … so she’s making great choices.”
While previously chatting with Closer in November 2019, Candace revealed Natasha would be making a surprise cameo in the fifth and final season of Fuller House — which premiered this past December. The blonde beauty gushed about having her daughter on set of the iconic TV show.
“As a mother, it was another dream come true,” she sweetly shared at the time. Although Candace insisted Natasha “did a great job,” she dished her daughter’s appearance almost didn’t even happen.
“She actually didn’t know if she even wanted to audition for Fuller House,” Candace revealed. “And I understood where she was coming from. But I was like, ‘It’s totally up to you, but you’d break my heart if you didn’t.’”
Despite any hesitation, Natasha auditioned for the role and “producers loved her,” Candace continued, adding how grateful she is to “have [her] buddy” on the job. “She’s my baby and we’re so close. It’s just a dream to be with my kids all the time, so to be able to work with them and share with them in the craft and the art is even more exciting and fun.”
We wonder if Candace and Natasha are planning to work together again in the future!
