11 '90s Child Stars Who Have Children Of Their Own Now
Thanks to the relentless march of time, it's no longer the '90s and the years have moved on. Suddenly, all the things you love are now 10 and 20 years old — seriously, how did that happen so fast? — and there are so many '90s child stars who have children of their own now. That's right — those plucky kids who used to star in all those movies and TV shows you loved are now parents to their own kids. Are you feeling old yet? Yeah, me too.
It's so crazy to think that some of your favorite kid actors who would make you laugh (and sometimes cry) in movies and Nickelodeon stars have kids of their own now, but here we are. The good news is that many of these kids of former child stars are chips off the old block as well when it comes to appearance, because the resemblances between famous parent and child is uncanny. And who knows, soon we may be seeing some famous progeny popping up on our TV and movie screens as child stars in their own right, bringing life full circle.
