9. How Val Met Candace
They met a charity hockey game back in 1995, which Dave Coulier was involved in. “[Coulier] was playing in a charity hockey game, and so he said, ‘Hey, there are these two really good Russian hockey players.’ It was Val and his brother Pavel [Bure]. He invited me to the game, he invited the whole cast, and I went with Lori Loughlin [who played Aunt Becky] and we sat there and were looking at these two really cute boys – two cute men, I guess – on the ice, and I was like, ‘I want to meet that one, the blonde one,’ which was Val. And that was it.” They went on a date the next day and then courted by phone for four months before they became a serious couple.
Candace married Valeri in 1996 when she was 20 years old and they had their first child when she was 22, daughter Natasha. Two years later, they had a son, Lev and two years after that they had Maksim.
