Early life and family
Candice Loren Crawford was born on December 16, 1986 in Lubbock, Texas, USA, so she is a US citizen and her zodiac sign is Sagittarius. Candice is the youngest daughter of Dana Crawford, a teacher, and Chris Crawford, a dermatologist, born in Dallas, Texas. Candice has an older brother, Chace Crawford, who is a popular actor, known for appearing in TV series such as “Gossip Girl” and “Blood & Oil”. When Candice turned three, her parents moved to Bloomington, Minnesota, because her father had to work there as a medical student for four years.
They later moved back to their parents’ hometown of Dallas, so Candice and Chace lived there until their matriculation exams.
From her early years, Candice felt comfortable being in front of the camera. She enjoyed singing, dancing and entertaining her family, friends and guests at their childhood home, and used every opportunity to perform when she had an audience. When Candice was about 14 years old, she competed in her first pageant – Miss Teen USA. She didn’t win the competition, but really enjoyed the process of entering it, and used that experience in her future modeling career.
Brother, actor Chace Crawford
Candice’s older brother, Christopher Chace Crawford, was born on July 18, 1985 in Lubbock.
Before starting his acting career, Chace attended Pepperdine University, majoring in television journalism and marketing; however, he dropped out of college to work as a car attendant just to raise some money for living expenses. In 2006, Chace got his first role in “The Covenant”, a supernatural thriller. In 2008, he appeared as Hayden Price in “Loaded”, and as Joseph Young in “The Haunting of Molly Hartley”. He later worked as a voice actor for such series as “Seth MacFarlane’s Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy”, “Robot Chicken” and “Family Guy”.

She later shared that it was only because of her parents’ unconditional love and support that she entered the competition again the following year – she was very busy studying, working as a personal trainer at the University of Missouri Recreation Center and also with her responsibilities as a sorority, yet she was brave enough to enroll for Miss Missouri a second time. Her father told her: “I think this is your year,” and Candice felt much more confident in her decision.
