"He actually learned English from watching Full House," Candace said of Valeri, a 39-year-old former NHL hockey player. "He's Russian and he came to this country when he was 17." (Candace starred as D.J. Tanner on the ABC sitcom from 1987 to 1995.)

"[They've told me,] 'We're proud of you, we're so happy for you,'" Candace said of costars Coulier, John Stamos, and Bob Saget. "They'll be at the show."
