Five Things to Know About Andrea Barber — Kimmy’s Got a Full House of Her Own! (VIDEO)

Dave Coulier's wedding on July 2 got us waxing nostalgic about the whole cast of Full House — so we figured we'd share some scoop on Andrea Barber, who played Tanner family BFF Kimmy Gibbler!

Check out the video above for all the deets, and read on for more info!

1. She initially auditioned for the role of D.J. Tanner.

Candace Cameron Bure — who ended up playing D.J. and remains besties with Andrea — revealed on Katie that Andrea originally tried out for her part. "She's like the total opposite of Kimmy Gibbler on the show," Candace said of her co-star. "I mean, she's very intelligent and smart. I was like, 'I should've been playing Kimmy Gibbler. You should've been playing D.J.'"

2. She loves to race.

And Candace is her workout buddy! "We ran several races together!" Candace informed Us Weekly. "She runs marathons! I run shorter races, like 5K or 10K races … she likes long distances. Now that she's run a couple races with me, she's dragging me into doing a marathon."

3. She's married with children.

Dave isn't the only one filling out his house — Andrea is, too! The 38-year-old has been married to Jeremy Rytky for nearly 12 years, and they have a 10-year-old son, Tate, and a 7-year-old daughter, Felicity.
