From Demi Moore and Bo Derek to Goldie Hawn and Raquel Welch, you would not believe the ages of some of these women. They have all proven that if you take care of your body, it will take care of you. What are their secrets?
Despite coming from the block, Jenny was born beautiful and nothing has changed that ever since she became a pop sensation. If anything, turning 50 has just improved her looks.
After going beyond the barriers of 60, this beach babe still looks as flawless as she did in the ’70s. She even recently participated in a 3,000-meter swimming marathon, proving age is nothing but a number. The iconic actress from the movie 10 says aside from her open-water swimming, her secrets include horseback riding and tending to her 110-acre ranch herself. Derek also has a flexitarian diet, which is mostly vegetarian but occasionally includes meat. This diet is said to promote health and prevent diseases.
Former actress and model, Mia Farrow, received recognition for her role on Rosemary’s Baby and appeared in 13 Woody Allen films while they were dating. She later became a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and was considered one of the most influential people in the world. However, things took a turn for a worse and she and Allen battled for custody over their adopted daughter. The lawsuit settled in favor of Farrow and we have no doubt she is using her great fortune on pricey anti-aging creams for that glowing skin.
Everyone knows Kate Winslet for her iconic role as Rose alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in Titanic. She is now pushing forty-odd and we will be amazed if she has aged this well without any surgical help. However, during an interview, she explained that her diet is the reason she looks this good. To keep her skin glowing, Kate never consumes any salt or alcohol. While it seems like a hard thing to do, maybe seeing her flattering results are a tempting enough reason to start.
The Grease star sadly battled breast cancer in the ’90s, however, it helped shape the way she lives her life today for the better. She is a frequent gym-goer, exercising around three or four times a week, and plays tennis. However, her number one beauty secret is being happily married to her “compatible” husband for 10 years. The actress has revealed she has never gone through with plastic surgery because she did not want to look like “those women” in Hollywood.
Best known for her role in the James Bond film Live and Let Die as well as from Somewhere In Time and East of Eden, Jane Seymour is another of our timeless beauties. The almost 68-year-old is still acting, having recently starred in Let’s Get Physical. Her secret? The star says, “I don’t do any of the plastic stuff… Just exfoliate, take your makeup off and use a good cream.” She also revealed she does light exercise and limits her red meat intake.
American actress Jessica Lange is familiar for her TV and theater roles, especially King Kong and Tootsie. Whether she has miraculous anti-aging products or just knows how to work the camera, given she is a photographer herself, this almost 70-year-old is aging so gracefully. Although the mom of three has been through a few divorces as well as a recent breakup from playwright Sam Shepherd, she seems to be still holding her own and looking pretty while she’s at it.
Is it just us or has Demi Moore even improved with age?! “I think that laughter and smiling are one of the best antidotes to aging that you could possibly have,” she told Parade in 2010. Despite this, she is no stranger to trying a beauty innovation every now and then. Moore has opened up about getting non-surgical tightening treatment and leech therapy. If bloodsucking leeches hanging off your body for 40 minutes will make us look like Moore, then there is no harm in trying!
This Pretty Woman actress became a star for her charming smile and her magnificent acting skills, and nothing has changed in the 25 years since. People magazine named her the Most Beautiful Woman in the World five times! Surely her $200 million fortune helps towards expensive anti-aging skin care, however, Roberts claims her luminous skin “starts with genetics.” Julia is also known for her organic and gluten-free diet as well as her obsession with Lancome skincare products. She is all natural!
Lisa Bonet is a star from the ’80s who is most remembered for her roles in The Cosby Show and A Different World. She is also famous for her former marriage to rock star Lenny Kravitz. After being constantly compared to her daughter Zoe Kravitz, who is nearing 30, you would never believe that Bonet is in her “golden years.” Although she has reportedly undergone some plastic surgery to keep her face intact, it is hard to notice exactly what she had done, given her natural and youthful appearance.
Cindy Crawford was one of those girls in high school that you envied. Not only was she beautiful, but she was smart and a valedictorian. She later became a supermodel and actress. Now 51, the beautiful actress is often photographed with her 15-year-old up-and-coming model daughter. “There’s no secret. Looking good is about eating right, getting enough sleep and drinking lots of water,” she told Redbook, “Also, you have to get moving. I work out several times a week, and I hike and ride bikes.”
With her fortune estimated at $1 billion back in 2000, Martha Stewart was clearly able to afford expensive skin products and most likely treated herself to many other luxuries in life, resulting in her looking the way she does in her late 70s. Known for many things such as being a writer, television personality, and businesswoman, Stewart’s money could not save her when she was accused of a few shady deals and ended up in jail. Despite her experiences, she still looks ever so graceful.
She is one of the more familiar faces among this list and is often described as the “best actress of her generation.” While she is particularly known for her versatility, the same cannot be said for her beauty products. With a net worth as great as Streep, she does not indulge in expensive products for her beauty regimen. Instead, she refrains from touching her face to avoid the spread of bacteria. She also does not wish to have any surgery to avoid looking frozen.
For decades, Diane Keaton has taken on roles that proved she was Hollywood royalty. After being diagnosed with basal skin carcinoma at 21-years-old, Keaton realized the importance of staying out of the sun’s harsh rays. This really helped her skin and she has never once been under the knife. To fight any signs of aging, Keaton regularly exercises and especially enjoys using her treadmill. She also decided to flaunt her white hair as she feels it looks better on older people.
Jennifer Anniston has not aged a day since first appearing as Rachel Green in the hit sitcom Friends at 24 years old. In fact, she looks younger and younger the older she gets. The now-49-year-old actress has had a rollercoaster of events in her life from breakups to divorces to scandals, however, none of these has aged her. Her skin glows given her healthy diet, exercise, and lots of water. Who needs a man when you look this good?
She was America’s sweetheart during Hollywood’s Golden Age, and even after reaching her own golden age, she still looked as beautiful as ever. The actress, model, and humanitarian set the precedent for beautiful women all over the world to use their stunning looks in pursuit of public goodwill. From her carefully plucked eyebrows to her flawlessly applied eyeliner, Hepburn began to let go of the heavy makeup as she aged. After battling cancer, Hepburn passed away at 63 years old, still holding her legacy and natural beauty.
It is pretty hard to believe that this Hollywood ‘good girl’ is now 72. The ageless actress from Private Benjamin had an outstanding career and set precedent for her three children, who are all successful actors themselves. Her beauty also lies within as she set up a nonprofit organization for youth education. Her secret? Apparently, she has none! She stays active, eats healthy, and drinks her green juice every day. She also uses sheet masks which she once revealed on Instagram.
You may have heard of Gigi, Bella, and Anwar Hadid, but they are all children of this stunning model from back in the day, Yolanda Hadid. More recently, she has become known for appearing on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Yolanda has been battling Lyme disease since 2012, which has led to her being unable to write, read, or watch TV. However, her looks have not faded and she is still as beautiful as her model children.
After managing to juggle a career as an actress, model, fitness guru, and activist, there is no doubt that Fonda knows how to age too. Although she is not shy to admit she has had to combat some sagging skin through nip-tuck and has had work on her jawline and under-eye area, Fonda has alternative ways to looking good. Despite her many divorces, she still tries to keep active through exercise and carefully watches what she eats.
You would not believe that the same lady that appeared on our screens as the first Wonder Woman is slowly approaching 70. Not only did this natural beauty feature as a female superhero, but she was also crowned Miss World America in 1972. Her personal life, however, was not as successful. After a short-lived marriage and divorce, Lynda admitted to having an addiction and that she went to rehab. She may have had it rough, but you certainly couldn’t tell from looking at her.
After being honored with the title of People‘s first ‘World’s Most Beautiful Woman’ in 1990, it is no surprise that Michelle Pfeiffer has aged flawlessly. The actress who starred in Batman made many poor choices in her youth which would damage her aging skin, such as smoking, yet her lack of effort beauty-wise has not caught up with her. Pfieffer now embraces her vegan diet to live long and avoids having plastic surgery, as she claims she does not want to look like a wax figure.
She turned heads in the ’60s, and even to this day, this 78-year-old remains one of Hollywood’s best-looking actresses. Okay, we must admit Welch has had some assistance in the aging process, such as cosmetic dentistry. However, there is no denying she’s still got it. Welch revealed she uses a $9 udder cream to erase aging lines called Bag Balm which is the same ointment farmers use to soothe bruised or sore teats of cattle! Although strange, if it works for Welch, we want some!
When you think how long ago movies like Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music were released, you realize it is no surprise that Julie Andrews is 83. But how does she looks so good? Apparently, the only reported surgery Andrews has ever undergone was on her vocal cords. Despite her upset over the operation and an ultimate malpractice lawsuit, Julie still looks as youthful as she did in the ’60s and most likely found a skin treatment that works for her.
Sofia Vergara almost always comes up in conversation when you’re talking about actresses that have aged well. Although in her mid-40s, she doesn’t look a day over 30. The Modern Family star has made it very clear that she is not a fan of aging and will do anything to keep the wrinkles at bay, even if it means “applying cement around her eyes.” Apparently, her mom told her that the last bit of water in the shower should be cold to get glowing skin. Cold showers it is then!
Josh Peck – Drake & Josh
Nickelodeon series Drake & Josh first aired in 2004. The show’s main actors, Josh Peck and Drake Bell, had already starred on The Amanda Show. In the series, Drake and Josh are teen stepbrothers learning to live in their new blended family.
Josh was the clumsier of the two, but also the smartest. Now, actor Josh Peck is a dad. He and wife Paige got married in 2017, and welcomed son Max Milo Peck in 2018. Adorable!
Tatyana Ali – The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
It’s been a while since The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air aired, but we still see Tatyana Ali as little Ashley Banks. The sitcom first aired back in 1990, and continues to be loved by audiences today. In the series, Will Smith played a fictional version of himself that had moved from Philly to a Bel-Air mansion.
These days, actress Tatyana Ali is a mom to two sons. After the show, she went to college and is now married to Dr. Vaughn Rasberry.
KayCee Stroh – High School Musical
When TV movie High School Musical was first released in 2006, the world went wild. One of the movie’s biggest songs is cafeteria number “Stick to the Status Quo” where students warn each other to not step outside the usual high school stereotypes.
During this number, smart girl Martha admits she likes to “pop and lock and jam and break.” Now, actress, singer, and dancer KayCee Stroh is a mom to two daughters. Zetta Lee arrived in 2013, and Lettie Louise in 2015.
Tia Mowry – Sister, Sister
The Mowry sisters were extremely famous teenagers in the ’90s, starting with their roles in sitcom Sister, Sister. After they were spotted on the set of Full House with their brother, a producer made the series just for them. Tia Mowry played Tia Landry, the bookish one of the twins.
Hey, we know that Tia Mowry hasn’t gone anywhere, but we still think of her as a teenager! In reality, the actress is a mom of two — son Cree and daughter Cairo — with actor Cory Hardrict.
Rupert Grint – Harry Potter
The Harry Potter kids were also incredibly famous at a young age. The faces of Ron, Harry, and Hermione were plastered on billboards all over the world. Each time a new movie was released, fans eagerly rushed to theaters. That’s why it’s so strange to think of Ron Weasley as a father.
English actor Rupert Grint has a daughter with English actress Georgia Groome. Little Wednesday G. Grint arrived in 2020. The couple prefers to stay out of the limelight.
Joe Jonas – Camp Rock
Likewise, part of our brain knows that Joe Jonas is now a married man with a child. However, the other part of our brain still sees the youngest Jonas Brother as the kid with the awful hair in Camp Rock. In the 2008 musical movie, Joe plays the arrogant Shane, a lead singer who overhears a mysterious singing voice.
Now, Joe Jonas is coupled up with English actress Sophie Turner. The pair got married in 2019 and welcomed daughter Willa Jonas the following year.
Danielle Fishel – Boy Meets World
Here’s another blast from the past. In teen sitcom Boy Meets World, we follow the life lessons of Cory Matthews and the people around him. Actress Danielle Fishel played Cory’s love interest, the wonderfully named Topanga. Fishel stayed with the show from 1993 to 2000, and appeared on Girl Meets World.
Danielle Fishel and husband Jensen Karp are parents to son Adler Lawrence Karp, and don’t show his face much online. Plus, on the star’s 40th birthday in 2021, she announced she was expecting again.
Daniella Monet – Victorious
Actress Daniella Monet has appeared on several kids TV shows, including Zoey 101 and Victorious. On the Nickelodeon sitcom, the teenage Tori Vega (played by Victoria Justice), found her place at the Hollywood Arts performing arts school. Daniella Monet played Tori’s self-obsessed sister, Trina.
Daniella Monet stayed in the limelight, working on various TV shows. The child star is now a parent to her own children — son Gio James Gardner, and daughter Ivry Monet Gardner.
Daryl Sabara – Spy Kids
It may be an old-ish movie now, but 1992’s spy action comedy Spy Kids was a hit when it first came out. The family film followed brother and sister Carmen and Juni as they got tied up in their spy family’s shenanigans.
Oh, and Danny Trejo plays their estranged uncle Machete. It’s great! But little Juni Cortez is a man now, and he’s married to pop star Meghan Trainor! The couple is parents to son Riley, who was born in 2021.
Tiffany Thornton – Sonny With a Chance
Let’s get back to Disney, this time with sitcom Sonny With a Chance. This series aired from 2009 to 2011, and followed teenager Sonny Munroe. Part of the cast was actress Tiffany Thornton, who played Tawni Hart. Tawni is the show’s classic jealous girl who eventually becomes besties with Sonny. Classic!
Nowadays, Tiffany Thornton is pretty far from sitcoms. Since 2016, she’s been working in college recruitment. Thornton is mom to two kids from her first marriage, Kenneth and Bentley, and two more from her second, Juliet and Kimber.
Christy Carlson Romano – Even Stevens
Before he was hitting the headlines for all the wrong reasons, actor Shia LaBeouf was starring in Disney Channel comedy Even Stevens. The show was the usual sitcom setup, with a “manly” father, a no-nonsense mom, and kids with clashing personalities. Christy Carlson Romano played sister Ren, the perfectionist smart girl.
Christy Carlson Romano had a tough time when the show wrapped, but later met her husband at Barnard College. The couple is now parents to two daughters — Isabella Victoria, and Sophia Elizabeth.
Carlos PenaVega – Big Time Rush
We’ve already caught up with Juni Cortez from Spy Kids, but what about sister Carmen? Never fear! We’ve got an update for you! You see, actress Alexa Vega went on to marry Big Time Rush actor and singer Carlos Pena Jr. When they tied the knot, they became the PenaVegas. Cute!
The former Nickelodeon star and spy movie icon are parents to two sons and a daughter. Carlos, Alexa, Ocean, Kingston, and Rio all share their lives on the family’s YouTube channel.
Lisa Foiles – All That
Here’s another actress that made an appearance on Even Stevens. Lisa Foiles was also a cast member on All That, the sketch comedy show packed with child and teen actors. This series started back in 1994, and has since been revived with OG cast members Kenan and Kel as producers.
Lisa Foiles is now a presenter, author, and video game journalist. And, of course, a mom. The former child star is married to Shawn Cloninger, and has two children.
Jamie Lynn Spears – Zoey 101
If you know Nickelodeon show Zoey 101, then it’s likely you know about the show’s teen star’s controversial pregnancy. Sure — we know that Jamie Lynn Spears has been a mom for a long time, but it still bends our minds to think of the show’s Zoey having children.
Jamie Lynn got pregnant at 16, and gave birth to Maddie Briann Aldridge in 2008. Since then, she’s welcomed another daughter, Ivy Joan Watson, with second husband Jamie Watson.
Kevin Jonas – Camp Rock
In reality series Married to Jonas, we watched eldest Jonas Brother Kevin adjusted to married life. In the series, we saw the Jonas Brothers made their 2012 comeback, make an album, and eventually break up. Back then, Kevin was far from fatherhood.
No longer the fresh-faced kid who once starred on Hannah Montana, Kevin Jonas is now a proud father of two. Kevin and Danielle welcomed daughter Alena in 2014, and daughter Valentina in 2016.
Marguerite Moreau – The Mighty Ducks
It’s time to go down movie memory lane once more! Often, the casts of kid’s movies stay frozen in your head. We like to believe the Goonies are still running through booby-trapped tunnels, or that the Little Rascals are still racing in the Soap Box Derby.
We don’t want to believe they’re adults just like we are. Well, little Connie from The Mighty Ducks is not so little anymore. The actress became a mom in 2015, welcoming son Casper Hayes Redman.
Danielle Panabaker – Stuck in the Suburbs
And now for a Disney Channel movie you may have forgotten. Stuck in the Suburbs sees bored teen Brittany accidentally swap phones with pop star Jordan Cahill — because what else happens in Disney Channel Original Movies? Danielle Panabaker played the movie’s lead.
As an adult, Danielle Panabaker still works as an actress. The Scream Queen got married to Hayes Robbins in 2017, and gave birth to their child in 2020. Panabaker is very private and hasn’t shared her child’s name or picture.
Hilary Duff – Lizzie McGuire
How could we even talk about people we think of as kids without mentioning Hilary Duff? Like others on this list, we know that we’ve seen this celeb grow up, and yet we can’t accept they’re not also their fictional selves. Or is that just us?
Alas, Hilary Duff is a mom of three happy kids. Her first, son Luca Cruz Comrie, is from the star’s marriage to NHL player Mike Comrie. From her marriage to singer Matthew Koma, Duff is mom to daughters Mae and Banks.
Nathan Kress – iCarly
Nathan Kress was another onscreen kid that did the circuit of noughties TV shows and movies. The child actor and model starred in Drake & Josh, and then made his name on iCarly. In the Nickelodeon show, Kress’s character Freddie is the technical producer of Carly’s web show.
Well, now he’s all grown up. Freddie Benson married actress and stunt performer London Elise Moore in 2015. The couple is parents to two daughters — Rosie Carolyn, and Evie Elise.
Justin Chon – Just Jordan
Alright folks, what about Nickelodeon’s 2007’s show Just Jordan? On this teen sitcom, Jordan works at his grandpa’s dinner and deals with his eccentric family. That sounds like a sitcom premise to us! One of Jordan’s frenemies on the series is Tony, played by Justin Chon.
Whilst Justin Chon has since portrayed Eric Yorkie in The Twilight Saga franchise, we can only see that goofy Just Jordan face. The actor and wife Sasha Egorova welcomed their first child in 2017.
Danny Tamberelli – The Adventures of Pete & Pete
The Adventures of Pete & Pete was a Nickelodeon comedy showing the surreal adventures of two brothers. That’s right — both brothers were named Pete. Not just that, both brothers were named Pete Wrigley. Clearly, the ’90s and ’00s were full of bizarre child-filled content.
Little Pete was played by actor Danny Tamberelli, who now has a little one of his own. The actor, comedian, and musician married Katelyn Detweiler in 2018. They welcomed a child in 2019. We hope it’s named Pete!
David Henrie – The Wizards of Waverly Place
Selena Gomez was the lead in fantasy teen sitcom The Wizards of Waverly Place. The Disney Channel series aired for four seasons, starting back in 2007. In the show, three siblings train to master their magical powers. Brother Justin was played by actor David Henrie.
No longer a mere monster hunter, now David Henrie is a father. Trust us — that’s much harder. The actor and director has two children with wife Maria Cahill. As of yet, the names of the Henrie kids are unknown.
Tamera Mowry – Sister, Sister
We’ve checked in with Tia Mowry, so it only makes sense that we also catch up with Tamera. The teen sitcom star played the boy-crazy Tamera Campbell on Sister, Sister — and also starred in Disney Channel movie Twitches. Like her sister, Tamera hasn’t gone anywhere, but we still see her as a fresh-faced teen.
Tamera Mowry married Fox News reporter Adam Housley in 2011. The two are parents to son Aden John Tanner Housley, and daughter Ariah Talea Housley.
Kel Mitchell – Kenan & Kel
From one double act to another, it’s finally time for Kenan and Kel! This twosome entertained audiences in their self-named sitcom from 1996 to 2000. Set in Chicago, the series follows best friends Kenan and Kel as they get up to all sorts of hijinks.
He was an orange soda-obsessed teen back then, but now Kel Mitchell is a father. Kel has four kids from two marriages. With Tyisha Hampton he has a son and a daughter, and with rapper Asia Lee, he has the same.
Justin Tyler Berfield – Malcolm and the Middle
On Malcolm in the Middle, we saw a family’s hectic daily life. Eccentric father Hal and overbearing mom Lois were parents to four boys — Francis, Reese, Malcolm, and Dewey. Justin Tyler Berfield played Reese, the obnoxious and regularly violent brother.
Hopefully, Justin Tyler Berfield is nothing like his character in real life. The actor is now a father, as well as the series’ lead character Frankie Muniz. One minute they played terrors, and now, they’re raising them. Doesn’t time fly?
Raven Goodwin – Just Jordan
We’re returning to Nickelodeon comedy series Just Jordan to check in on actress Raven Goodwin. On the show, Goodwin played Tangie Cunningham, Jordan’s cousin. The tough character also nursed a massive crush on Tony Lee for the show’s duration.
The former child star announced her engagement to finance executive Wiley Battle in 2019, and they later welcomed a daughter. Once an on-screen teen, now Tangie is mom to Riley Rosa Bell Battle. And honestly, that makes us feel seriously old.
Jaleel White – Family Matters
Admittedly, we’re going way back here, to ’80s hit Family Matters. Obviously, none of the actors from this show are still kids, but one is still seared in our collective memory. As Urkel, Jaleel White became a breakout star. Incredibly, the character was only supposed to be in one episode.
Now definitely an adult, Jaleel White is a father of one. The star had daughter Samaya in 2009 with his now ex-girlfriend Bridget Hardy. We wish you all the best, Urkel!
Melissa Joan Hart – Sabrina the Teenage Witch
Our favorite childhood witch has also grown up and had some kids of her own. On Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Melissa Joan Hart’s character lives with her aunts Zelda and Hilda. And, lest we forget, with Salem the magical talking cat.
The show has since been rebooted on Netflix, and Melissa Joan Hart has become a mom. The actress has three kids in total with musician Mark Wilkerson — sons Tucker McFadden, Mason, and Braydon. Hopefully, they’ve inherited their mom’s powers!
Anna Chlumsky – My Girl
Child star Anna Chlumsky may have played foul-mouthed Amy in Veep, but she’s still Vada from My Girl in our hearts. The 1991 coming-of-age movie was Chlumsky’s big break, and she was only 11 years old! Of course, Chlumsky’s co-star was mega child star Macauley Culkin.
In 2007, the actress announced her engagement to soldier Shaun So. So had been deployed prior to this, and the couple got married in 2008. They have two daughters together.
Bindi Irwin – Bindi the Jungle Girl
Remember little Bindi Irwin? Well, she’s not so little anymore! Bindi first appeared on our screens with her famous father on The Crocodile Hunter Diaries when she was just two years old. By age nine, she was hosting her own wildlife documentary show, Bindi the Jungle Girl. Sadly, Bindi was just eight years old when her father passed away.
Now, Bindi Irwin is married to American professional wakeboarder Chandler Powell. The couple welcomed their daughter, Grace Warrior Irwin Powell, in 2021.
Chris Warren – High School Musical
It’s time to return to East High School and see who else in the High School Musical cast is a parent. We’ve already caught up with Kaycee Stroh who played the smart kid that loved to breakdance. Well, now we’re with the basketball player who loves baking.
Chris Warren Jr. played Zeke in the hit musical. He married to British-Amerian host Layla Kayleigh in 2019. The pair have a son together, and Kayleigh has a daughter from a previous marriage.
Sabrina Bryan – The Cheetah Girls
Based on a series of novels, The Cheetah Girls is a franchise that includes movies, video games, and lots of music. The movies, produced by Whitney Houston herself, follow a teen girl group’s journey from talent show to mega-stardom. The girl band featured Raven-Symoné, Adrienne Bailon, Sabrina Bryan, and Kiely Williams.
These days, Sabrina Bryan — aka Dorinda Thomas — is married to strategic accounts manager Jordan Lundberg. The couple welcomed their daughter, Comillia Monroe, in 2020.
Brenda Song – Stuck in the Suburbs
We’ve already mentioned iconic child star Macaulay Culkin, but did you know he’s married to another child star? Culkin started dating actress Brenda Song in 2017, and they welcomed son Dakota Song Culkin in 2021.
Perhaps because of their unusual backgrounds, Brenda Song and Macaulay Culkin like to keep their kid out of the spotlight. Dakota’s picture hasn’t been officially released or posted, but the infant has been papped while out for a stroll with his famous mom.
Kirsten Storms – Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century
For lots of ’90s kids, Zenon Kar was the coolest kid ever. In 1999, Disney Channel Original Movie Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century, the character is sent from her alien planet to live on Earth amongst humans. At first, she struggles to fit in, but eventually, she saves the world. Awesome!
Kirsten Storms married actor Brandon Barash in 2013, and together, they’re parents to daughter Harper Rose. The couple called it quits in 2016, but decided to stay amicable for their child.
Ashley Leggat – Life With Derek
Life With Derek first aired in 2005, and followed the daily happenings of a newly blended family. As we’ve seen before on many sitcoms, this series featured a newly married couple with kids from previous relationships. Ashley Leggat played Casey McDonald, the eldest child of Toronto-dwelling Nora.
In 2011, Ashley Leggat married hockey player Jeremy Williams, her longtime boyfriend. Now, the pair have two daughters — Olivia Patricia Anne, and London Marie. London is the name of the city the McDonalds move to on the series!
Bow Wow – Like Mike
He was once known as Lil’ Bow Wow, but now the rapper and actor simply goes by Bow Wow. This talented kid released his first album at only 13, as well as starring in various movies.
In sports comedy Like Mike, Bow Wow played an orphan whose basketball skills improve when he finds some special shoes. Now an adult, Bow Wow is father to daughter Shai Moss, who was born in 2011. In 2020, he revealed that he has another child.
Allen Evangelista – Zoey 101
In Nickelodeon series Zoey 101, Allen Evangelista played Wayne “Firewire” Gilbert. Weirdly, the tech geek wants to be Ryan Seacrest. However, he actually spends his time building robots and not letting Quinn join the science club. What else would you expect from a sitcom high school villain?
Now, Allen Evangelista is married to Christina Burhoe. The couple has two sons together — Hudson and Harrison. One day in the near distant future, those kids will watch their old man on TV.
Ross Bagley – The Little Rascals
Actor Ross Bagley has played several well-known child characters. The actor and comedian played Buckwheat in The Little Rascals, making lots of us fall in love with his adorable little smile. After that, Bagley was Nicky Banks on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, from 1994 until 1996.
In 2015, Ross Bagley revealed that he was working as a realtor. The former child star now has a child of his own, a son named Reece. Thankfully for all of us, little Reece just looks like his daddy.
Taylor Hanson – Hanson
When Hanson was on the charts, we were all singing “MMMBop” at any given opportunity. The band was made up of three blonde brothers — Isaac, Taylor, and Zac. However, there are more Hansons! The boys are actually from a family of seven siblings.
Now, Taylor Hanson (the keyboard player) is a father of seven himself! The singer married Natalie Anne Bryant in 2002 and is dad to Jordan, Penelope, River, Viggo, Wilhelmina, Claude, and Maybellene. Hopefully, they can sing!
Hayden Panettiere – Tiger Cruise
She’s been in other things since, but Hayden Panettiere starred in Disney Channel Original Movie Tiger Cruise back in 2004. The movie follows teenager Maddie as she goes on a military cruise with her family. Maddie’s enthusiasm about the military is challenged when the 9/11 attacks happen and the ship goes on full alert.
In 2009, Hayden Panettiere started an on-off relationship with then world heavyweight boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko. Though no longer together, the pair are parents to daughter Kaya.
Kenan Thompson – Kenan & Kel
We know that Kel Mitchell is now a father, but what about his partner in crime Kenan Thompson? Well, as well as pursuing a pretty successful career on screen, Kenan has managed to fit in parenthood too.
The Nickelodeon star appeared in various shows and movies as a kid, and hasn’t stopped since. He’s now married to model Christina Evangeline, with two daughters — Georgia Marie, and Gianna Michelle. Hopefully, he’s as fun a father as his TV persona makes him out to be!
Erik Von Detten – Brink!
Actor and singer Erik Von Detten has had all sorts of cool roles. He played the voice of villain Sid in Toy Story when he was just 13 years old. Then, he landed the lead role in Disney Channel Original Movie Brink! The movie followed high schooler Andy “Brink” Brinkner as he trained as an inline skater.
Erik Von Detten reprised his role as Sid in 2010, but retired from acting after that. He got married in 2018 and is dad to daughter Claire, and son Thomas.
JoAnna Garcia – Are You Afraid of the Dark?
For a kid’s show, Are You Afraid of the Dark can be really scary, including its creepy opening credits. The Nickelodeon series first aired in 1990, and then rebooted in both 1999 and 2019. JoAnna Garcia was a cast member in the original series, playing Sam.
Fittingly, Sam’s stories often revolved around love, especially for her crush Gary. Now, JoAnna Garcia is married to baseball player Nick Swisher. The couple has two daughters together — Emerson Jay and Sailor Stevie.
Jenna von Oÿ – Blossom
The creators of ’90s sitcom Blossom originally offered the role of Dorothy “Six” Lemeure to Melissa Joan Hart. However, when she instead opted for Clarissa Explains it All, the job went to actress Jenna von Oÿ. Later, the actress also appeared in 1999 The Parkers, the spin-off of Moesha.
In 2010, Jenna von Oÿ married computer data consultant Brad Batcher, though they later split. The actress is mom to two daughters — Gray Audrey, and Marlowe Monroe.
