As a person who writes daily about pop culture and celebrity, I try not to look at stories that make me nostalgic and think “I’m so old!” Because, really, what’s the point? But sometimes I can’t help feeling alarmed by how swiftly life moves.
On the heels of Melissa Joan Hart, teenage witch and explainer of all, announcing she’s expecting her third child, Taylor Hanson of the handsome Hanson brother band revealed to People that is going to be a dad for the fifth time.
Hart, 36, has two sons with her husband Mark Wilkerson. Hanson, 29, ( I repeat, 29) has four children with wife Natalie.
I realize this is good news. And I’m happy for both of these people who clearly had an impact on my childhood.
But I mean, come on!
If you need me, I’ll be listening to “MMMBop” while watching this clip of Hart playing “Sonic the Hedgehog” on “Nickelodeon Arcade.”
