- Candace Cameron Bure posted a "touchy" photo with her husband, Val Bure.
- While some fans laughed at it, others questioned the Hallmark star's post.
- The actress responded to the backlash in her Instagram stories.
Although her husband, Val, who she often refers to as "the unicorn" on Instagram, likes to keep things private, he "gave her permission" to post a rather, let's just say, handsy photo over Labor Day weekend. The picture in question shows the couple looking straight at the camera as Val rests—possibly, grabs—Candace's breast.
Some of Candace’s followers simply laughed at the photos, while others criticized the actress for being “inappropriate.” As a result, Candace addressed the critics on her Instagram Stories.
In a series of videos, the Fuller House star defended her decision to share such an intimate moment with the world: "For all of you Christians that are questioning my post with my husband's hand on my boob—my husband of 24 years—thinking it was inappropriate, it makes me laugh because it's my husband, we have so much fun together. He can touch me anytime he wants, and I hope he does. This is what a healthy, good marriage and relationship is all about."
She then apologized for posting something that offended her followers, but then quickly took it back: "I'm sorry if it offended you ... I'm actually not sorry," she laughed. "I'm glad we have fun together after so many years. He can touch me all day long."
This isn't the first time that Candace has shared a PDA-filled pic with her husband. For her birthday, Candace asked if "the unicorn" would appear in a video with her. "Best birthday ever," she squealed as her husband gave her a kiss.
In honor of Valentine's Day earlier this year, she posted a photo kissing her husband, much to the disgust of the couple's three children: Natasha, Lev, and Maksim.
And while the two clearly thrive on laughter and physical touch to make their marriage work, Candace makes it clear that their Christian faith is the the true foundation of their love. "The reality is, the glue for us is Jesus," she told People in 2018. "It’s the Bible. You know, when there are arguments or we’re compromising, it’s always like, ‘Well, let’s just go back to the Bible.’ It’s the foundation for us. So it’s not about winning or losing, but doing this journey together."
If their journey together involves some laughs and PDA, who are we to judge? Exactly.
Correction: Candace Cameron Bure clarified she never deleted the photo as the original story stated, rather it was posted to her Instagram Stories where it expired after 24 hours. This story now reflects those changes.
