30 Celebrities You Never Knew Were Teen Parents

At 19, Niki Taylor was already approaching the peak of her modelling career when she gave birth to twins, Jake and Hunter following a relationship with AFL linebacker Matt Martinez.

Taylor, whose modelling career began at 13 meant her teenage years were far from average, though her 20s were probably less than ideal, with Taylor’s marriage ending aged 21 after just two years.

The Welsh crooner has been delighting people for years with soulful ballads about love and all things beautiful, with hits like “Sex Bomb” a mainstay anthem in many clubs throughout the world. However, Jones’ earlier life wasn’t one which suggested he would go on and sell over 100m records.

In fact, by the age of 17, Jones was living a more modest life in Wales and was already a father after the late love of his life Linda Trenchard, who remained with the singer till her death, gave birth.

American Idol favourite Fantasia Barrino didn’t have it easy growing up, and her storyline on the reality show made many viewers cry in disbelief. So brutal was Barrino’s life she dropped out of high school when she was only 17 after being raped by one of the students.

Shortly after dropping out, Barrino became romantically involved with a local man though she broke up with him before she gave birth at only 17 to their first child, Zion Quari Barrino.

The British playwright and legendary wordsmith William Shakespeare fathered a child at the tender age of 18, a fact few know of, which is surprising for a writer whose works have sold more copies than anyone else.

According to historians, Shakespeare had a shotgun wedding to Anne Hathaway (no, she didn’t travel back in time) after she discovered she was pregnant, with some even believing that Hathaway’s family pressured the young writer into marrying her following news of her pregnancy.

The fiery Columbian bombshell is the highest paid TV actress in Hollywood and is married to the Magic Mike and True Blood actor Joe Manganiello, undoubtedly making them one of Hollywood’s hottest couples.

But Sofia’s success in Hollywood came later in her life. In fact, she was still in Columbia when she had her first child, Manolo, with high school sweetheart Joe Gonzalez who married her a year later before they divorced aged just 19.

As you can see from the photo above, Manolo, who is now 26, has clearly inherited his mother’s good looks!

16. Lucky Blue Smith

The hottest property in male modeling is cartoonishly handsome, but his impenetrable gaze and chiseled cheekbones seem to run in the family, with his cohort of blonde sisters also models.

Still practising, the Utah native has, however, spurned the opportunity of multiple wives (a common practice with Mormon husbands) telling the Daily Mail, “One’s enough.” Sadly, one wasn’t enough in the literal sense, as Smith broke up with his girlfriend and fellow model Stormi Bree last year. However, the ex-couple do share a child, with Smith just 18 when son Gravity was born.

One of rock’s most legendary crooners was a notorious womanizer in his younger days, but even in his pre-fame days he got around the block and actually fathered a child when he was 17-years-old.

Sarah, his eldest daughter, would be the first of 8 children. However, Sarah was put up for adoption by the mother and only got back in contact with her father during the 1980s. However, it wasn’t until 2007 that they became close.

Remember her? Asia Nitollano was the winner of the reality show Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll. What made her victory even more remarkable was that she was an 18-year-old single mother at the time of the recording.

However, she left the band a few months later to pursue solo projects.
