Candice Michelle Beckman Ehrlich (born September 30, 1978) better known as Candice (Michelle) is an American model, actress, and retired professional wrestler best known for her time with World Wrestling Entertainment.

After spending years modeling and acting, Candice Michelle was hired by WWE in 2004, after she participated in the WWE Diva Search. Outside of wrestling, she is known as the Go Daddy Girl, performing in the company’s annual Super Bowl commercials. She also posed for a cover and nude pictorial in the April 2006 issue of Playboy. At Vengeance in 2007, she defeated Melina to win her first WWE Women’s Championship and became the first former Diva Search contestant to win a WWE title.  She was released from her WWE contract on June 19, 2009.

Beckman grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and she is of German and Costa Rican descent. She played varsity and college basketball and has an avid interest in many sports. Because she is from the state of Wisconsin, Candice is a Green Bay Packers fan.

At sixteen, Beckman won a modeling competition at her local skating rink. Around 1999, she moved to Los Angeles, California to become a professional model and actress. She studied Theater Arts at Santa Monica College and had on camera acting and Meisner technique training at The Piero Dusa Acting Studio. It was during this time that Beckman adopted her middle name Michelle as her working last name. She appeared in numerous bodybuilding and car magazines such as FLEX and Lowrider Magazine, as well as being named Cyber Girl of the Week in the June 2002 issue of Playboy. Beckman also made appearances on television programs such as Party of Five, 7th Heaven and Hotel Erotica, as well as appearing in such films as Tomcats, Anger Management, DodgeBall and A Man Apart.

On May 7, 2005, she married Ken Gee Ehrlich, a Los Angeles chiropractor. Together they have three daughters: AkiAnne Rose, born May 23, 2010, Ryumi Grace, born October 20, 2012 and Aloha Von Ehrlich, born July 17, 2015.

She has a tattoo of the word “faith” on her inner wrist, which she considers a “personal affirmation”. It is also a reminder, in her words, to “believe in myself and have ‘faith'”. She got the tattoo, which was documented on the reality show LA Ink, after breaking her collarbone in 2007. The tattoo is also related to her Christian beliefs. When Candice made her return, she had new tattoos on her back, her new tattoos are of five stars, which starts at the lower part of her back then finished at the middle of her back.

Candice, along with Batista, Shelton Benjamin, and Josh Mathews, represented WWE at the 2008 Democratic National Convention in an effort to persuade fans to register to vote in the 2008 Presidential election.
