Want to feel really old?

Just check up on your old '2000s movie and TV stars. Suffice to say, a lot has changed. Take Josh Peck, for instance. He's had a major glow-up over the years!

But that's not all. Most of these former child stars are now married with families of their own. Come check it out for yourself.

It's hard to imagine the Lizzie McGuire star as a full-fledged adult, much less the mother of three kids!

She had her first child, Luca, with ex-husband, Mike Comrie, and has two children, Banks and Mae, with husband, Matthew Koma.
