Candace Cameron Bure has revealed her son Lev is getting married – two years after calling off his previous engagement to Taylor Hutchison.
The Fuller House star, 47, – who sparked backlash with her ‘traditional marriage’ comments last year – told USWeekly Lev, 23, will tie the knot ‘just after Christmas’ with his partner, whose name has not been revealed.
She said: ‘We are gaining a daughter very soon. My son is getting married just after Christmas, and so we’re very excited.
‘She is definitely, definitely invited into the family, but we’ll see how the holidays work out in that way. Now it’s, like, two families. We’ll probably be vying for the kids every year.
‘Am I a [mother of the] groomzilla? No, I’m not. I promise you I’m not. I feel like it probably is different to be the mother of a groom than the mother of the bride.”

‘I’m definitely finding my place in the wedding and just being supportive and I love that. Of course, I want to help and do everything, but I’m learning to settle into my position of just being available and supportive.’
The star – who has been married for 27 years to Valeri Bure, said she had already imparted marriage advice to the ‘amazing’ pair along the way.
The star is also mom to daughter Natasha, 25, and son Maksim, 21.
In April 2021. Cameron Bure announced Lev had ended his engagement to Taylor.
She said: ‘We didn’t make an announcement, but yeah, he’s no longer getting married. It was a mutual decision, so nobody’s upset and heartbroken.’
Candace was only 19 herself when she first met her husband – retired NHL star Valeri Bure – after being introduced by her Full House castmate Dave Coulier at a charity hockey game.
Last year Cameron Bure previously stirred up controversy after she left her longtime home at the Hallmark Channel in April 2022 in favor of Great American Family, which she said would ‘keep traditional marriage at the core‘ following anti-LGBTQ backlash Hallmark received after releasing a TV movie with its first gay lead couple in 2020.
However, the actress was then slammed when she confirmed that she did not expect the network to feature same-sex couples in starring roles. ‘I think that Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core,’ she said.

Last year, Bure revealed that she left the Hallmark Channel party because of the stories it was telling.
‘My heart wants to tell stories that have more meaning and purpose and depth behind them,’ she explained. ‘I knew that the people behind Great American Family were Christians that love the Lord and wanted to promote faith programming and good family entertainment.’
She later added that she thought ‘Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core.’
Backlash: Bure prompted a backlash with an interview she did with the Wall Street Journal . She said her new TV network – Great American Family – would not be featuring gay couples in lead roles, unlike the Hallmark Channel (pictured) where she previously starred
Great American Family is a cable television network that broadcasts family-oriented programs, much like Hallmark.
Celebrities like JoJo Siwa and Maren Morris were quick to call Bure’s comments homophobic.
One Tree Hill star Hilarie Burton even called Bure a ‘bigot,’ and said ‘I don’t remember Jesus liking hypocrites like Candy. But sure. Make your money, honey. You ride that prejudice wave all the way to the bank,’ in a tweet.
Bure then released another statement to defending herself.
‘All of you who know me, know beyond question that I have great love and affection for all people,’ she told Fox News Digital. ‘It absolutely breaks my heart that anyone would ever think I intentionally would want to offend and hurt anyone.’
