Ever asked the question, “Am I that old?” Well, if you look back at the child stars of the 2000s, you will be asking that question. Most of them are now married with families of their own.
Take, for example, Josh Peck. He is no longer that chubby, cute boy from the Nickelodeon sitcom Drake & Josh but a lean, sexy “specimen.” Did I add that he is now married with one kid? Didn’t we practically grow up together? Yet, here I am. LOL.
Here are other 10+ child stars from the 2000s with families of their own.
Hilary Duff from the Disney Channel series, Lizzy McGuire, is not only a full-fledged adult but is now a mother of three! Can you imagine that? I can’t help but remember her as a teen idol.
She is now a mom to three adorable children: Luca, Banks, and Mae. She had Luca with her ex-husband, Mike Comrie, and the other two with her husband, Matthew Koma.
Did you think about Big Fat Liar, Agent Cody Banks, and Malcolm in the Middle? Muniz is a teen star in the ’00s that is hard to forget.
Well, not only is he now married to Paige Price, they welcomed their first child together in March. He wrote on Instagram: “I love my baby so much. And I love my wife more than ever.”
In addition to his years of acting and racing, he and his wife now run an online-only olive oil shop. What a family man!
Jamie Lynn Spears
The Zoey Brooks of Zoey 101 became a parent much earlier. When she was 16, she got pregnant with her first daughter. At the time, she told People: “I put myself in an adult situation, so I needed to handle it like an adult.”
Jamie has come a long way since then. She is now married to Jamie Watson and has another daughter, Ivey Joan. Her older daughter, Maddie, was recently involved in an ATV accident. She was unresponsive for a while but eventually pulled through.
I already gave you a glimpse of this. The child star got majorly ripped, a huge transformation that got many of us tripping. He is married to Paige O’Brien, and in December 2018, they welcomed their son, Max Milo Peck.
Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song
Home Alone was a huge part of our growing years, and we rightfully credit Macaulay Culkin for that. I even had a crush on the character Kevin McCallister. I can’t believe he’s now 40 and in a serious relationship with Disney queen Brenda Song. I’m sure you remember her from the movie The Ultimate Christmas Present and the Disney movie, Stuck in the Suburbs.
Culkin and Song now have a son together, Dakota Song Culkin. The baby was named after Culkin’s sister who passed away in 2008.
Christy Carlson Romano
I can’t get her Kim Impossible character out of my mind. How this Even Sevens star is not with one but two baby girls is still too much for me to digest.
She has two cute girls, Isabella and Sophia, with her husband, Brendan Rooney.
The Spy Kids franchise would not have been what it was without Alexa’s character, Carmen Cortez. Although she is now starring in Hallmark movies, we can’t forget her as a teen star.
In December 2020, she and her husband, Carlos, revealed that they are expecting their third baby in addition to the two cute boys, Ocean King PenaVega and Kingston James PenaVega, they have already.
On May 7, 2021, they welcomed their daughter, Rio Rey PenaVega.
Another Spy Kids alumni with a family of his own! And guess what?! He had his first child with singer, Meghan Trainor!
They welcomed their baby, Riley, this past February. This heartwarming video of him adjusting very quickly to his dad duties is one of the cutest things you’ll see today.
I feel so betrayed. I thought one of the Jonas Brothers from Camp Rock would be mine someday. Kevin is now a dad to two lovely daughters, Valentina Angelina and Alena Rose. I guess their screams are now giving him more joy than ours ever did.
He loves that he has daughters after being surrounded by boys all his life. Now, that is not all.
Joe also has a baby now. Joe Jonas welcomed his first child with his wife, Sophia Turner, in December. The cute little girl is named Willa. Well, we have just Nick left, and even that is not so certain.
Tia and Tamera Mowry
The twin sisters have gone from Sister, Sister to Mother, Mother. Both of them are married and have two kids each. There are no twins from any of them yet, but we are looking forward to it. There is still time.
Sister to Julia Roberts, she starred in Nickelodeon’s Unfabulous in the ’00s. She welcomed her first child with her boyfriend, Garrett Hedlund. Her son, Rhodes, is definitely her biggest gift.
She shared on Instagram: “Thank you 2020 for getting one thing right.”
After babysitting the twins on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody for years, she now has a child of her own. In March, she welcomed her first child with her husband, Christopher French.
Her baby’s name is so cute: Jupiter Iris.
Talking about waiting to have kids, she said: “After six years of marriage, we built a strong foundation, and the timing just felt right. I gave it to God and the universe and honestly didn’t feel stressed about it, and then it happened very quickly.”
Ron Weasley from Harry Potter is now a dad! Unlike his otherwise private self, he shared a picture of his baby girl with his longtime girlfriend. Talk about a proud dad. I literally hear, “I can keep every other thing, but I’m such a proud dad, I just have to share this.” Well, thank you.
