Since its launch in 1979, Nickelodeon has served as the tastemaker for generations of kids and tweens everywhere. If you were a TV-watching kid sometime in the last 30 years, chances are the stars of Nick's many shows served as important counterpoints to your own growth.

Catching up with your fave Nickelodeon channel stars who became amazing moms today can feel like checking in with an old friend.

These women prove it's possible to be a child star and go on to live a fulfilling family life. Hopefully, these moms have also introduced their kids to the wonders of old-school Nick shows.
