Former child star Candace Cameron-Bure's beloved Tv show Full House helped her husband speak English.

The actress has been married to Russian ice hockey star Valeri Bure for 18 years and she admits she fell head over heels in love with him when they first met at a party when she was 18.

While they were courting, he told her that her hit show had helped him master English.

She says, "He's Russian and he came to this country when he was 17."

Cameron-Bure reveals her man still has a Russian accent but adds, "It's so small I hardly hear it."
