Candace Cameron Bure received tons of birthday wishes specifically from her “Full House” co-stars. In celebration of her 44th birthday on Monday, her television family shared photos of themselves with the Hallmark actress. The Instagram posts were accompanied by heartfelt captions.
Among those to make a social media post was the actress’s television dad Bob Saget, who starred as Danny Tanner on the ABC sitcom.

He wrote, “My Dear Candace, Happy Birthday!! Here we are at a benefit and I’m dressed as Harry Potter having a midlife crisis. What an incredible woman you have become. But I knew you’d be one when you were ten and helped me remember my lines. So proud to have you as my dear friend for life. Wishing you the happiest of birthdays with your beautiful family. Love and love, Oh, it’s Bob”
Bure, who plays his eldest daughter DJ Tanner, replied to his post appreciatively, but not without correcting him for not calling her by her character’s nickname.
She added: “Hi Bob. It’s Candace- you just wished me a happy birthday. You already know how much I love and adore you- like crazy too much. Thanks for always being there for me not only to make me laugh, but to share my tears. Love you. It’s Deej btw.”
John Stamos, whom Bure and many others still refer to as Uncle Jessie, also gave the mom-of-three some Instagram love on her special day.

Stamos wrote: “Happy Birthday @candacecbure! Remember when we were allowed to be this close? Love you UJ (need a good caption for this pic)
Bure wrote the “You” star back with a special request for his 1-year-old son.
“Thanks Uncle J- I love this post and I love you back. But if you really love me, you’ll get Billy to sing me happy birthday,” she replied with a winky face.
Jodie Sweetin seems to be just as close to Bure off-camera she is on-camera in “Full House” and it’s spinoff “Fuller House.”

She captioned her photo: “Happy Birthday to the best tv-sister, She-Wolf, bestie I could possibly ask for! Love you lots and I wish I could celebrate with you today!! #fullhousefamily #shewolvesforever #happybirthday #missyou”
Bure commented, “I love you little sis SO DANG MUCH,” with a series of red hearts.
Andrea Barber’s Kimmy Gibbler is Dj Tanner’s hilariously odd best friend and neighbor in the sitcoms. Barber’s Instagram post stayed true to her character’s humor.

“Happy Birthday to this ageless beauty! 44 has never looked so great!” she wrote. “I love you SO much @candacecbure and can’t wait until the day we can finally hang out again and do ALL the facial masks!”
“OH my goodness!!! Mama, I love and miss you tons,” she wrote with laughing and heart emojis. “And I miss our she-wolf pack!!!! This Quarantine must end NOW.”
Sweetin also chimed in under Barber’s post: “Omg!!!!! This made me miss you guys so much!!!!”
Dave Coulier, who is known as the humorous Uncle Joey, also showed his sitcom niece some love.

“Love you,” Bure replied.
As previously reported, the “Fuller House” series, where many of the cast members have reclaimed their original roles, will soon be coming to an end. Bure revealed when fans can expect the final episodes of Season 5 during her live stream appearance on “The Talk Chat Room.”
“Everyone is saying like ‘please drop the last nine episodes’ [because] you know it’s like the farewell season…I don’t think that they actually have everything ready to be able to let those episodes go right now,” Bure explained to host Sheryl Underwood. “I know the fans want them while we’re all sitting home, but I think they’ll be ready in the summertime.”
All four and a half seasons of “Fuller House” are currently available to stream on Netflix.
