10+ Celebrities Who Had Children When They Were Young

Having children can be quite a divisive topic in Hollywood. There are those who can't wait to start families of their own and others that abstain entirely from the conversation.

Below are 10+ celebrities who had children when they were young. Have a look at what celebrity babes just couldn't wait to meet their famous moms and dads.

Lil Wayne

They call him Weezy F. Baby and the 'F' stands for fatherhood! The legendary hip-hop icon once dubbed the best rapper alive welcomed his first child into the world when he was only 16-years-old.

Wayne was seeing his high school sweetheart at the time.

Jamie Lynn Spears

Jamie Lynn Spears was a rising star with a promising career ahead of her. Then, the news of her teen pregnancy broke and effectively derailed Jamie's career for the foreseeable future — she was 16 at the time.

Back then, her pregnancy was considered a scandal.

Solange Knowles

When Solange was only 17-years-old, she met and fell in love with a man by the name of Daniel Smith. A year later, the couple was married.

Not long after Solange had her 18th birthday, she gave birth to her son Daniel Julez Jr.

Candace Cameron-Bure

Candace starred as DJ Tanner in the hit family sitcom Full House for the majority of the '80s and '90s.

She married her husband Val Bure shortly after turning 20 and the couple welcomed their first child two years afterward.

Aretha Franklin

Aretha Franklin was the legendary soul singer behind iconic hits like "Respect" and "Do It Right."

Life wasn't always easy for Aretha. By the time she was 15-years-old, she'd already given birth to two baby boys; Clarence and Edward.


No, Adele wasn't 21 when she gave birth to her firstborn son (but how cool would that have been?).

The Grammy-award singing pop star had just turned 24 before she let the world in on the news that she was indeed pregnant.

LeBron James

LeBron and his wife Savannah have been together through all of the ups and downs of life.

They began dating when they were still in high school and when King James was 19, they introduced the world to LeBron James Jr.

Will Smith

Fans tend to forget that Will Smith is a father three times over. Before he got together with Jada Pinkett, Will had a son named Trey with his first wife.

Will was only 24 at the time Trey was born.

50 Cent

50 cent was only 22 when his son Marquise was born. Sadly, both father and son remained estranged to this day.

The hip-hop mogul has lamented multiple times over in interviews how his fame cost him his firstborn son.

Britney Spears

I will never forget when the news first broke that Britney Spears and her then-back-up-dancer beau Kevin Federline were expecting.

It seems like an eternity ago — Britney was barely 23-years-old then! Where does the time go?

Lucky Blue Smith

Have you ever seen a more adorable daddy/daughter photo? I mean just look at those eyes!

Lucky was only 19 at the time that he and then-girlfriend Stormi Bree had their first child. His daughter Rumble (pictured above) isn't even a year old yet.

Lisa Bonet

Lisa Bonet had just turned 21 when she gave birth to her first child Zoë Kravitz. At the time, Lisa was starring in The Cosby Show spinoff series A Different World.

When news of her pregnancy broke, Lisa was fired.

Reese Witherspoon

Reese married young and was pregnant with her daughter Ava by the time she'd turned 22.

A little less than four years later, she and then-husband Ryan Phillipe introduced the world to their firstborn son — Deacon Phillipe.

Sofia Vergara

Talk about a throwback shot! That's Sofia Vergara playing on the swings with her eldest son, Manolo.

Sofia was only 18-years-old at the time, a single mother, and a struggling actress. You'll probably recognize the mother/son duo from their Head & Shoulders hair commercials.

Kylie Jenner

Kylie was only 20 when she informed the world that she and Travis Scott were expecting.

While speaking about motherhood to People magazine, Kylie said that "Everyone says you change completely when you become a mom, but I really feel the same, just better."

Natalia Vodianova

Natalia is not only a Russian supermodel, she's also an entrepreneur as well as a Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations. When Natalia was only 19-years-old, she welcomed her firstborn son Lucas into the world.

Just like his mother, Lucas has also become incredibly involved with the world of fashion.

Suzanne Somers

Suzanne Somers is best known for her role as Chrissy Snow on Three's Company. She gave birth to her son, Bruce Jr., at the age of 19.

Also, in case you were curious, the young girl Suzanne is standing beside — that's her granddaughter.

Roseanne Barr

Due to the fact that Roseanne was only 17 when she gave birth to her daughter, Brandi Brown, she was forced to give the girl up for adoption.

Years later, the pair rekindled and Brandi even wound up working as a PA on Roseanne.

Fantasia Barrino

I've never been a fan of American Idol but for as long as I live I'll never forget the voice of Fantasia Barrino.

This powerful diva was only 16-years-old when she gave birth. Fantasia defied the odds and has since become an incredibly respected vocalist and artist.


T.I. is the self-proclaimed "King of the South," responsible for hits like "Bring 'Em Out" and "You Don't Know Me."

The iconic hip-hop emcee has six children in total, the oldest of which was born before T.I. turned 20.

Taylor Hanson

The name Taylor Hanson may not ring any bells, at least at first, but I'm willing to bet that '90s kids still know all the words to the song "MMMBop."

Taylor and his wife Natalie have seven children together, the first of which was born when Taylor was only 19.

Keisha Castle-Hughes


Fans of the iconic high fantasy series Game of Thrones will no doubt recall Keisha from her time spent playing Obara Sand; a bastard daughter of Prince Oberyn.

Keisha had her first child back in 2007 when she was only 17-years-old.

Anna Nicole Smith

Anna Nicole Smith was a model and television personality who first rose to fame after being named Playboy magazine's "Playmate of the Year" back in 1993.

She late starlet first gave birth to her son, Daniel, when she was only 19-years-old.
