The Hollywood star Candace Cameron Bure took to Instagram this week to celebrate her 25th wedding anniversary with her husband, former professional hockey player Valeri Bure. The actress surprised many by thanking her former “Full House” costar Lori Loughlin for “being my wing woman” on the night the two met.

Cameron Bure took to Instagram to post a throwback photo of herself with Loughlin along with their former costars Bob Saget and Dave Coulier.

“This photo was taken in 1994 at the Luc Robitaille charity hockey game @dcoulier invited @bobsaget, Lori Loughlin and me to,” Cameron Bure wrote in the caption.

“Thank you @dcoulier for taking me to my first hockey game,” she later added. “Thank you Lori for being my wing woman and thank you @bobsaget for watching out for me like a dad.”

Cameron Bure and her husband tied the knot in 1996, and they have since gone on to have three children: 22-year-old daughter Natasha and sons Lev, 21, and Maksim, 19.

As for Loughlin, she and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli plead guilty last year to charges related to them allegedly paying $500,000 in bribe money to have their two daughters admitted to the University of Southern California as members of the crew team, even though neither girl had ever rowed before.

Loughlin served two months in prison for her role in the college admissions scandal, and she was released at the end of December. Her husband served five months behind bars and was released at the end of April.

Last month, Cameron Bure was asked if she and Loughlin still speak.

“Yes, I’ve talked to Lori [Loughlin] many times. And she’s doing well,” she said.

Back in November, Cameron Bure took to Instagram to share a note that was seemingly sent to her by Loughlin after “Fuller House” came to an end.

“Dearest Candace, Congratulations on a great run! Have a fabulous last week. I love you and miss you,” the note read.

Cameron Bure later told Entertainment Tonight that the note was indeed from Loughlin and that “she sent me flowers and I believe a few other people some flowers.”

“It was so nice to feel and have her presence there at the show. … Yeah, it was really special,” she said at the time.
