Sofia Vergara, Rod Stewart, Will Smith and More! See Hollywood Stars Who Became Parents at a Young Age

We wonder if these Hollywood parents knew what to expect when they were expecting! Tons of your favorite actors and actresses, like Sofia VergaraWill Smith, Kate Hudson, as well as many others, became parents at a super young age. Some of them were just starting out their entertainment careers and adapted quickly to the pressures of making it big while juggling their new responsibilities.

Rocker Rod Stewart became a father at 18, just as he was trying to get his music career with the group The Dimensions off the ground. He has since welcomed seven more children throughout his successful career, adjusting to parenting his kids who have large age gaps between them.

“I have to be several different fathers because of the different age groups of my kids,” the Grammy winner told People in November 2021. “You really have to treat all of them as individuals with individual problems.”

The “Sailing” singer went on to become one of the most successful performers in the entire world during his 60 years in the spotlight. Though Rod had to adjust to life as a new parent, he would not change a thing about his life.

“I couldn’t ask for anything better,” he said. “What makes me happiest now is seeing all my kids and my wife with big smiles on their faces.”

Actress Suzanne Sommers faced a similar journey as a young parent as she snagged minor roles in film and on television. The Step by Step actress shared what it was like to become a mom as a teen in a November 2018 Facebook post.

“I gave birth to Bruce one month after my 19th birthday. He emerged from my body looking nervous and in the delivery room my first words to him were ‘I promise I will make a good life for you,’” she wrote. “I worried being still a teenager that I didn’t have the skills. I have spent my adult life trying my best to live up to that promise. When I look at the fine person he has become I feel fulfilled as a person, as a mother,  to have given life to one of the finest people I have ever had the privilege of knowing and the profound privilege of loving him with all my heart.”

Although transitioning into be parenthood can be difficult, we can’t even imagine how much harder it must be while pursuing a Hollywood career. Luckily, these celebrity moms and dads have made parenting at a young age look effortless!
