Candace Cameron Bure's daughter Natasha Bure grew up to be gorgeous

If you came of age in the late 1980s and early 1990s, chances are that Full House was one of your must-watch shows. The sitcom launched the careers of many celebs, including Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and Candace Cameron Bure, who played D.J. Tanner.

Fast-forward over 30 years later (feel old yet?) and you'll find that Candace, while she has aged incredibly well, has started sharing the family spotlight. In particular, her daughter Natasha Bure has been making all kinds of waves with her growing list of accomplishments and interests. Plus she looks so much like her mom that they could be sisters! 

So what is the younger Bure up to now that she's old enough to vote? Has she diverged from her parents' moral path or is she a chip off the old block? Has she gotten herself into any Hollywood shenanigans? Here's everything we know about Natasha Bure, who really has grown up to be gorgeous.

The firstborn of her celeb mom and hockey dad

Candace Cameron Bure married hockey player Valeri Bure in 1996, over 20 years ago — crazy how fast the time has flown! According to fellow Full House cast member Dave Coulier, who introduced the pair, sparks flew from the very beginning. "When Valeri first saw Candace, he just blushed," he told People magazine. The couple went on a date the next day and were engaged within a year, according to Us Weekly.

After the big wedding, the Bures decided to start a family. And on August 15, 1998, they welcomed their first child, Natasha, into the world. Two other children followed, according to Woman's Day: Lev, two years later, and Maksim, two years after that.

By the looks of it, Natasha enjoyed a happy childhood, and has expressed gratitude for her family — especially her mother. "I'm so glad God gave me you as a mom, because Lord knows no one else would have been able to handle me," she said of her in an Instagram post. Who wouldn't be happy with such a charmed childhood?

Christian to the core

Religion has been extremely important to Natasha Bure for as long as she can remember, which she affirmed in an interview with Harvest Show International. "My faith in general has just been a huge part of my life ever since I was born," she shared. That's no exaggeration, either. "I grew up in a Christian household, I was raised by Christian parents, I went to Christian school all the way up to tenth grade, so pretty much my entire life was always surrounded by it," she continued. No wonder it means so much to her.

Bure doesn't do anything without thinking about faith first. "I think with anything that I do and continue to do, I would want it to reflect me and my faith and the person that I truly am," she said in an interview with Fox News.

She's not at all shy about being a hardcore Christian either, thanks to her mother's example. In an interview with NBC News, Bure said her mom is "very outspoken about [faith], so it's obviously encouraged me to be that way." Looks like the apple didn't fall too far from the tree.

She felt the pressure from an early age

It might be glam growing up in a celeb family, but it's not all glitz all the time. In fact, Natasha Bure felt pressured to be perfect from a very early age. In an interview with Harvest Show International, she said, "Growing up, I was always very conscious of how I looked, how I dressed, how I acted — I always wanted to be cool because society tells us, 'oh, this is how you're supposed to look, this is how you're supposed to act.'" But that mentality wasn't healthy for Bure, as it caused her to fixate too much on her image. She continued, "I was constantly in my own head always caring about what other people thought about me." Sounds exhausting!

In order to break out of that mindset, Bure had to do some serious soul-searching. "I really had to get in touch with myself and know where I stand with my morals and what I believe in, and really stick to that instead of…following into peer pressure," she shared. That in turn helped her to cultivate her authenticity, which is super important to her.

Mom wasn't always her BFF

Natasha Bure didn't have a buddy-buddy relationship with Candace Cameron Bure growing up — quite the opposite, actually. In an interview with Fox News, she said, "I think for a long time my mom was just strictly my mother… we did not have a friendly relationship… she was somebody who was disciplining me and, you know, setting rules in our house." Or, in a nutshell, as Bure told Entertainment Tonight, "She's hip, but she's strict. Like, she's definitely strict." That pretty much sums it up!

But Bure's not mad about how she was raised, or salty about the experience. "I'm so happy that she set those rules in place," she continued. Those rules helped her develop into the person she is today.

Bure says she and her mom are more chummy now that she's older, and that they spend time together as friends — mostly. "There's still going to be that mother-daughter boundary," she noted.

A social media starlet

Natasha Bure is no stranger to the internet. "I love social media. I love Twitter, Instagram," she declared in an interview on The Rachael Ray Show. And she's been on both of those platforms for some time, developing a solid presence for her followers.

Bure's Instagram is chock full of selfies, throwback pictures of her and her family, Full House references, and some ultra-glam fashion shots. For that, she's garnered 375K followers — pretty impressive for such a youngin! 

Bure maintains an active presence on her Youtube channel as well. There you can find a wide variety of content, from makeup tutorials to vlogs with her friends to music videos. She also has a series called Girl Talk, where she gives everyday advice on health and beauty. The verdict? Wholesome.

Her Twitter account is more casual than her other social media presences. Like the rest of us, she complains about traffic, shares relatable gifs, and gushes about her favorite shows. 

Maybe she's born with it

When you're born beautiful, it seems only natural to give modeling a whirl. That's just what Natasha Bure did, and pretty early on to boot. "I actually started modeling when I was pretty little," she revealed to Naluda magazine. Just how little? "I have little Polaroid test shots of me when I was 5 or 6. I took a break from it when I was around 10, and now I just model for fun," she added.

However, that doesn't mean she's written off the prospect of a professional modeling career. "I would love to get back into it though. It's such a great art form and creating different looks for photography is always fun," she continued.

Bure once got some sagely modeling advice from none other than stunner Gigi Hadid — talk about modeling royalty! Bure told People magazine that Hadid said, "The only advice I would give is to just walk like you're walking on the street." Bure noted that she took that advice to heart.

Pitch perfect pipes

If you recognize Natasha Bure but can't quite put your finger on why, chances are you saw her perform on season 11 of The Voice. During a blind audition, she wowed judge Adam Levine, who selected her to be on his team after she performed a cover of the Elvis Presley classic "Can't Help Falling In Love." 

Although Bure was eliminated after a battle round with Riley Elmore, she looks back on the experience fondly. "I had a great experience on the show, meeting other artists and becoming best friends with them. I learned so much about myself during that season and I am so glad I was able to be a part of it," she shared with Naluda magazine. That's a super enlightened takeaway for someone so young — girl has some serious poise.

Bure's vocal resume includes more than being a contestant on The Voice, too. She sang an original song live on Billboard, and performed with Grammy Award winning Christian pop duo for King and Country live in concert. She also posts videos of cover songs on her Youtube channel. When's the album going to drop, Natasha?

Lights, camera, action!

As if singing and modeling weren't enough, Natasha Bure also has a blossoming acting career. For starters, she appeared in a commercial for Whimzy Pets when she was a kid — talk about a throwback! 

Additionally, in 2017, she acted in a film for The Hallmark Channel, entitled Switched For Christmas, along with her mother. "I was blessed to be a part of it, and I would love to continue doing these types of films," she said of the experience in an interview with iHollywoodTV

Even though Candace Cameron Bure starred in the movie, she stressed that she didn't want to get too involved with her daughter's acting on set. "It was really important to me to make sure I let the director do their job and not give Natasha any acting notes," she told The Christian Post. Who knew she was capable of turning off her famous maternal instincts?

Natasha Bure also acted in the 2018 film Faith, Hope, & Love, a Christian romance film. We can't wait to see what she does next!

"Let's be real"

Of Natasha Bure's many accomplishments, arguably the most impressive is that she wrote and published a manuscript at age 18 — something most people never do at all, let alone as a teenager. The book, entitled Let's Be Real: Living Life As An Open And Honest You gives wisdom and advice to girls and young women. She told Naluda magazine, "I wanted to use my platform to bring light to topics that teens struggle with every day," such as dating, peer pressure, body image, and matters of faith.

The book's core message is that authenticity and being true to yourself is of paramount importance. "It's all about being real, being open, and being honest. There is nothing better than doing just that," she shared with The Christian Post. "Living a life that is authentic makes having fun, making friends, and pursuing passions so much easier!" she added.

Bure really had to open herself up to the world writing this book, which wasn't exactly easy. "I want to be real with other people and not make my life seem like its filter perfect," she revealed to Naluda magazine. That's so refreshing in the Instagram age.

"Hopefully I'll have a boyfriend by then..."

Even though she has so much under her belt already, Natasha Bure has some ambitious plans for the future. She told Naluda magazine, "I see myself hopefully on some sort of music tour, releasing music, performing, and being in the most creative zone I've ever been in," all in the next five years. Clearly she's not slowing down anytime soon!

Bure also has a more personal wish in her five-year plan. "Hopefully, I'll have a boyfriend by then as well," she revealed. That's right — Bure has beauty, brains, and endless ambition, but alas, she hasn't found Mr. Right yet — or had a boyfriend at all, according to Entertainment Tonight. That's hard to believe, but maybe she just has super high standards.

So what's she looking for in a mate? We don't know much yet, but she did tell Entertainment Tonight that she's "looking for someone funny." Let the speculation commence!
