Nostalgia Alert: Every Laguna Beach Alum Who Has a Kid — or 4
Let's go back, back to the beginning — well, back to 2004 to be exact, when Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County was the reality show to tune into week after week. More than 10 years ago, the lives of Laguna Beach High School students, including Lauren Conrad (LC), Kristin Cavallari, Stephen Colletti, Lo Bosworth, and more were all we could talk about — that and their terrible hairstyles. Remember the poof and the serious side bangs? We sure do!
Now, nearly 13 years after the show first aired, the cast of Laguna Beach are full-on adults. We knew this day would come, but knowing how many stars from the first two seasons of the MTV series are parents is making us feel very old. Lauren's costars from The Hills might be the current focus in regards to baby fever after she, Whitney Port, and Heidi Montag all announced their pregnancies around the same time, but it's actually the cast of Laguna Beach who is all about that mom and dad life, which is so wild.
OK, enough talking, here are the 10 stars you might not have known are parents (or soon-to-be parents) from seasons one and two of Laguna Beach. Prepare yourself for a serious trip down memory lane and to feel old as you read on. Oh, and maybe listen to Hilary Duff's "Come Clean" to really get into a nostalgic mood.
Lauren Conrad, aka LC to all diehard Laguna Beach fans, is the most recent LB alum to become a mother. After marrying William Tell in September 2014, Lauren spent the next few years focusing on her many career ventures. She has her own website, two clothing lines (LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's and Paper Crown), is the cofounder of The Little Market, plus she is the author of numerous books. Despite being a crazy, successful businesswoman, Lauren and her husband, William, decided to take on their biggest job yet ... becoming parents.
The duo welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Liam James Tell, on July 5, 2017 in California. “He's here! We're so excited to welcome Liam James Tell into the world!” Lauren captioned her sweet Instagram announcement. She and William debuted her baby boy in People magazine in early August.
When it came to the reality show, Kristin Cavallari was the bad girl that you couldn't help but love. The way she said "Steeee-vennnn" will forever be engrained in our minds, and we love her for it. Since the series wrapped (and she went on to star on The Hills), Kristin has become a force to be reckoned with. In addition to designing her own shoe line and writing a book, called Balancing in Heels, Cavallari has been happily married to former Chicago Bears quarterback, Jay Cutler, since 2013.
Her biggest accomplishment however might be being a mother to her three children. The former reality star has two boys, Camden (who is four years old), and Jaxon (who is three years old), and one little girl named Saylor (who is one year old). Together they are just the cutest little family!
You might remember the legendary friendship between LC and Lo on Laguna Beach, but there was a brunette BFF duo that also won over our hearts, made up of Christina Schuller and Morgan Olsen. Although Christina is now married and goes by her married named Sinclair, we will always remember her as the "Reverand's daughter," who wanted to make a name for herself on Broadway.
Nowadays, Christina is married to Chad Sinclair (they tied the knot in 2011) and mother to two beautiful children. She has a 3-year-old son named Christian and welcomed a baby girl named Cienna in January 2017. She is a fitness instructor, USC graduate, and is frequently at the beach with her children, just like any good Laguna Beach native would be.
Morgan Olsen (now Smith) is the other half of the brunette BFFs from season one of Laguna Beach. She was known for being a virgin (like her bestie Christina Schuller Sinclair), and for getting rejected from the only college she applied to. Life, however, has definitley improved for the Laguna Beach native since her time on the reality series. Morgan went on to graduate from BYU in 2008, and in September 2010, she married her longtime love, Joel Smith.
The two are now proud parents to two children, a boy and a girl. Their son's name is Theo (he's 3 years old), and their daughter Georgia will turn 1 year old on Sept. 24 (she was born on the couple's anniversary in 2016!). When Morgan isn't traveling with her children — to seaside cities like Nantucket — she is working on her baby bathing suit line called Minnow Swim. The suits are SO cute.
Out of the season one (and two) boys, Talan Torriero was the sweet, surfer boy, who was a friend and a love interest for many ladies on the show. Surprisingly, he is only one of two guys from the first season (the other being Dieter Schmitz) who is actually married. Talan tied the knot in June 2014 to Danielle Zuroski and they couldn't be happier together — their photos are seriously so cute. Although they aren't parents as of now, the Torriero family is expecting a baby boy in October of this year!
Jess-ka! Or, Jessica Smith to everyone else, was Kristin's best friend in high school and they did everything together on the show. Although Jessica (now Evans) dated Dieter Schmitz on the first season of the show, and later Jason Wahler on season two, she left behind the reality TV life as soon as she graduated from Laguna Beach High School.
The sweet — and at times very catty — reality star found love with Michael Evans, and the two have been married for years. Together they have four children, Michael (who is 6 years old), Brooke (who is 5 years old), Colton (who is 3 years old), and Emma, who was born in March of 2017. If you want to see more adorable pictures of this happy family, just scroll through the proud mom's Instagram account!
Alex Hooser, or Alex H. as she was known on the MTV series, was one of Kristin's other best friends throughout the show (along with Jessica Smith Evans), and eventually became friends with many of the season two cast additions. Although Alex has been keeping a low profile since the show wrapped, she has remained friends with a few of the season-two ladies, despite moving to Hawaii and getting married in 2015.
She is now the mother to an adorable baby boy named AC (Andrew Chevy), who is 1 year old, lives the island life, and reunites with her girls for weddings and big events (like being a part of Alex M.'s bridal party).
When season two started, all eyes were on Kristin and her senior class. This included the queen bee of her rival girl squad Alex Murel, or Alex M. (who was mostly an issue because she was into Kristin's BFF's man, Jason Wahler). Over the years, Alex (now Johnson) has kept in touch with her high school BFF Taylor Cole, Morgan Souders, and Alex H., all of who were in her wedding.
After she tied the knot in 2014 to Kyle Mark Johnson, the two got ready to have a family. They are now proud parents to a 1-year-old son named Levi William, and we're in love with his fiesta-themed birthday bash that they threw in July.
Casey Reinhardt (now Brown) might've been the new girl in town when Laguna Beach started its second season, but she isn't last to the baby party. In fact, Casey had a big year in 2016. First, she married Sean Brown on Feb. 20, 2016 and on Aug. 16, 2016 the couple welcomed their daughter Kensington Kelly into the world.
"We are beyond in love with our sweet girl and I absolutely love being a mommy! I feel so overwhelmed with joy every time I look at her...This is what pure happiness feels like," she captioned her "welcome to the world" post last summer. "I love you so much @seanmbrown1 thank you for giving me the best gift I could ever imagine! Life is so amazing and we are so blessed 🙏🏻🎀💖💗."
Like the other male star on this list, Jason Wahler is not a father ... at least not yet. Jason, who caused a LOT of controversy during his time on both Laguna Beach and The Hills, by dating three of the show's ladies (Jessica, Alex M., and Lauren) eventually settled down and is now ready to be a two-woman man.
After marrying his love Ashley Slack in Malibu in October 2013, Jason has become a suburban, soon-to-be dad, having bought a house in Laguna Niguel in 2015 and being sober for a few years now. The happy couple is expecting a baby girl in August, according to their cute Instagram reveal, which Jason posted in two separate parts. Congrats you two!
