8 celebrities who had kids by the time they were 20 years old

8 celebrities who had kids by the time they were 20 years old

Because Kylie Jenner is pregnant at age 20, she now gets 20 straight revolutions around the sun of media cycles. It's the rule the old Gods cast down when the Cenobite Prince first rode the wings of Baphomet against fading starlight, and said: "You will follow the Jenners, you will follow the Kardashians. You will keep up with them until you lie low upon your belly, and inhale dust in your last days as the serpent-king."

Anyway, because 20 is now a number of such sacred geometry, it's time to bring up some other celebrities or actually talented people who were also pregnant by age 20, under wildly different and mostly way more difficult circumstances. Like obscenely different circumstances. Kylie Jenner is a pampered little hunk of porcelain compared to, say, what most people have gone through by age 20, let alone Aretha Franklin. More on her later.

So, here's the list of eight celebrities who also had children by age eighteen, and who were all probably way better than Kylie Jenner at what they chose to do in life.

8. Sofia Vergara

That's right, the famous leading lady of Modern Family was only eighteen when she had her son, Manolo Gonzalez-Ripoll Vergara. Now, he's all grown and is apparently turning heads with looks of his own. God, it must be awkward, taking your hot mom to an awards show.

7. Jamie Lynn Spears

Yeah, remember Zoey 101? Well, I'm pretty sure the show got canned cause Jamie Lynn Spears got pregnant. I seem to remember it, anyway. She was only 16 at the time. It was rather shocking. Zoey and Chase were meant to be, right? Oh God, what blithering tunnels of nostalgia that lead only to dehydrated fingertips, dropping the snow globe with a crack and a shatter (Her kid's name is Maddie Briann Aldridge, btw).

6. Solange Knowles

Long before there were Cranes in the Sky, Solange was a mother at age 18, with her son, Daniel Julez J. Smith Junior. She grew up fast, then came into her own better than most of her contemporaries.

5. Niki Taylor

Ok, literally do not know who this person is. But apparently she's a supermodel? It would be damn hard to balance that and kids, that's for sure. She had twins at age 18. Tough going.

4. Naomi Judd

The country singer had her first daughter at age 18. She named her Wynonna.

3. Aretha Franklin

Finally, a legitimate star. I mean, uh, (cough). Aretha Franklin had her first child at age 14, and a second at age 16. Anyone who raises two children while she herself is a child, then goes on to be one of the best singers to ever do it, has a will of absolute steel. Nothing but respect.

2. Maya Angelou

Another American legend, a master poet and major civil rights hero, Maya Angelou was 16 when she gave birth to her son, Guy Johnson. What a phenomenal woman.

1. Shirley Temple

This child actress who played [God knows who] was married at 17 and had a child at 19. But then she went on to become a major Republican and Richard Nixon appointed her as a UN ambassador so idk.

So, well, uh, there you go. Are you not entertained?! Read this about the Cash Me Outside girl, because you know you now must if you've read through this.
