We all remember that awkward stage, along with those of our favorite girls' next door. Who knew that America's sweethearts would turn out to be (eh hem) so grown?
Keshia (a.k.a. Rudy) reached her pre-teens as a Huxtable, but left the public eye to finish school and become a Spelman woman.
These twins have definitely blossomed and grown into their looks. Tia, in particular, has some game we can learn from.
Perhaps, Meagan was always the original good girl, gone bad. She has a body, and knows how to use it. Proceed with caution.
The real soap heads remember Nia from her Guiding Light days. Now, she's officially the black starlet we've been eyeing for years.
Maia has been a cutie since she hit the scene on In the House. We wish her well as she deals with recent issues in her personal life.
Olivia's sassy and determined demeanor may have been improvised by the young actress. This mogul in the making has not only grown into a beautiful woman, but she also runs it...That's so Raven!
Gabby brought it as a "teen queen", but her grown and sexy swagger has kept us in awe since the late 90s.
Ahh...Laura Winslow. The most chased after girl next door on the list. I wonder what Urkel (or better yet Stefan Erkel) would have to say now?
Kyla was a cute kid that packed a mean punch. Now she's stylish, but still able to maintain that down-to-earth quality. We can't wait to see what come next for our girl.
Zaria Peterson was the fantasy of many young boys back in the day. Since then, not much has changed. Reagan is still making them salivate thanks to KING Magazine.
Tatyana (aka Ashley Banks) always played a very believable good girl. When she grew up, recorded a few albums, and opted for an Ivy education, we weren't surprised. She makes being a child star look like a cake walk.
Does this surprise you as much as it surprised us!?! Jurnee used to talk smack on Full House, and she later commanded the big screen in Eve's Bayou, but wait...when did this girl get this old? Maybe she had a premonition and forgot to tell us.
