Hollywood celebrities usually pursue parenthood in their late thirties or forties after they have lived it up. Some stars though, became parents in their teens and even though their path ahead was challenging, they overcame adversities and beat odds to live the life they chose.
Here’s a list of the early timers:
- Sofia Vergara, the Modern Family star, gave birth to her son when she was all of 19! Manolo, her son is now a star in his own right, having featured in commercials and produced his own Youtube series. Manolo’s father and Sofia were high school sweethearts and though they’ve separated, they still co-parent their son. Now that’s sweet.
- LeBron James, the NBA all- star had to grow up really fast. The standout athlete found out he was going to be a father during his rookie year in the pros. Although he was very scared when he heard the news and thought it’s going to ruin his career, he went on to father two more children with girlfriend Savannah Brinson and eventually married her.
- Niki Taylor, the American supermodel had a big load on her plate by the time she hit her early twenties. She became pregnant with Jake hunter’s twin babies when she was all of 18 and by the time she hit 21 she divorced the kids’ father. She married Burney Lunar in 2006 and had two more kids. Quite a life this!
Parenting is a big challenge by itself, and to embrace star hood along with it must have been difficult for these celebs. Hats off to them for carrying on.
