Candace Cameron-Bure ''loves'' her body.

The 38-year-old actress, who previously suffered with bulimia, admits she's learnt to accept her figure and believes she's in better shape now than when she was 20.

She said: ''I've grown to love my body and I'm very happy with it. I'm confident with my body and at my age, not that I'm super old! But I feel like I look better now than I ever did in my 20s. I love my body.''

The former 'Full House' star believes her children Natasha, 16, Lev, 14, and Maksim, 12, whom she shares with her husband Valeri Bure, have helped her achieve the body she wants because they've kept her active.

She explained: ''I enjoy playing sports with my kids. It's just affected my body, so I love the way it looks now.

''It's self-confidence, but I've also gotten more in shape than in the past even 10 years since I had my kids.''

Meanwhile, the blonde beauty revealed her battle with her eating disorder in her book 'Balancing It All' when she admitted getting married at the age of 20 and her sitcom ending spurred on her unhealthy habits.

According to the Huffington Post, she wrote: ''That really was the time of identifying with being an actress and that being my whole life, and then now being someone's wife and moving to a new city, a new country even. I turned to food for comfort and had to find a different source, because clearly it wasn't a healthy way to deal with things.''
