  • Sofia Vergara was married at 18, had a son by 19, and was divorced a year later. Of course, she went on to rack up a number of Emmys for her role on Modern Family.

  • Aretha Franklin was just 14 when she gave birth to her first son and 15 when she had her second, with another man. She now has two more sons, and 18 Grammys.
