"I spent Monday through Friday for seven important years with Alan Thicke as my 'TV dad.' I'm shocked and truly heartbroken today at the news of his death," Kirk, 46, wrote on Instagram. "Alan was a generous, kind and loving man. I am so blessed to have grown up with him. [My wife], Chelsea, and I send our love and prayers to his family tonight. We will cherish the memories… 'sharing the laughter and love.'"
Still most known for his role on the 80s sitcom, the star continued acting and appeared on shows like How I Met Your Mother and The Bold and the Beautiful. Alan sadly died at age 69 on Dec. 13, 2016 after suffering a heart attack.
At the age of 17, Kirk, now 45, became a born-again Christian, and in recent years has gained a lot of criticism after referring to homosexuality as "ultimately destructive to foundations of civilization." He now has six kids — Jack, Luke, Anna, Isabella, James and Olivia — with his wife, Chelsea Noble.
The 47-year-old took a break from the acting world after Growing Pains to focus on raising her three children, Dylan, Aiden and Sage. In 2004, she was arrested for drunk driving after she rolled her SUV — which carried her husband and children — down the road. After getting three years probation, she cleaned up her act and later welcomed another child, Bailey. In 2011, she publicly spoke out about her previous battles with anorexia and bulimia.
So, Leonardo kind of fell off the map after Growing Pains. LOL, just kidding… he's still one of the greatest and most popular actors ever. The 41-year-old has yet to settle down but has been romantically linked to several gorgeous stars including Rihanna and Bar Refaeli. Currently, he's rumored to be dating 25-year-old model, Kelly Rohrbach. Professionally, the heartthrob has starred in many successful films in recent years, including The Wolf of Wall Street, The Great Gatsby and Inception.
