Confirmed: Stephanie Tanner's got some seriously sexy moves!

Jodie Sweetin made her big debut on Dancing With the Stars on Monday night, ready to show viewers that she's now a 34-year-old woman with her sexy tango with partner Keo Motsepe. And guess what? She totally did it, dude, receiving a solid 20 points from the judges for her first dance of the season.

After the premiere, E! News caught up with Jodie and Keo backstage, where she revealed the sweet text messages her on-screen big sis and Fuller House co-star Candace Cameron Bure, who previously competed on DWTS, was sending her before and after her performance.

"I spoke to Candace actually during the taping, she was texting me right before," she revealed to Sibley Scoles. "She was like, 'Oh my gosh, go kill it. I love you. You're going to be amazing. Go enjoy it, have fun!' And then she was texting me, like, 'How did it go? What happened?!'" Best. Big. Sis. Ever.

While Candace couldn't make it to this taping, there was one Fuller House co-star in the ballroom audience: Juan Pablo Di Pace, who plays Fernando, Kimmy's hot hubby on the Netflix hit revival. 

"He was here tonight to support me," Jodie gushed, while adding that fans can expect to see Andrea Barber in the audience next week. "They're family, so they're all coming to support me," she said. "So it means a lot."

All together now: Awww!
