Candace Cameron Bure admits won’t be wearing skimpy costumes while competing on the 18th season of Dancing With the Stars because she is a mom and wants to be a good role model.
“The two most important things in my life are my faith and my family and I know that is what is going to get me through this competition,” Bure, a devout Christian, told partner Mark Ballas in a video clip from their rehearsals. “I’m not gonna be your sexy girl, I’m a mom of three kids so I want to look good and feel beautiful, but I will probably stay on the more modest end of costuming.”
Bure has three children, daughter Natasha, 15, and sons Lev, 14, and Maksim, 12 with her husband, Russian hockey player Valerie Bure.
“I won’t be the sexiest one out there,” she told Us. “I am a mom and I want to be a good role model for my children and my husband. But I think for each dance we’ll wear what reflects the dance but in the most classy way possible.”
Bure also hopes that her appearance on DWTS will motivate other moms.
“I want to represent all the moms out there and inspire them and encourage them,” she explained. “I’m just a woman, I’m not any different than all the moms out there — my priority is my family, my husband, my kids and so this for me is truly just a joy. It’s something I’ve never done and to get the opportunity to do this is fantastic. I’m just going to enjoy every moment. We’re working hard of course, but I’m thrilled to just be able to work hard and do this.”
The Full House alum made her dancing debut on Monday, March 17. She and partner Ballas came in second place with a score of 25 points.
