Mayim Bialik made waves across the Internet recently, not for her role on the hit CBS sitcom "The Big Bang Theory," but for her startling admission on the Kvell website that she still breast feeds her 3-year-old son as part of her "attachment parenting" philosophy. In honor of finally realizing that the former teen star of "Blossom" is all grown-up with kids, let's see how the cast has fared since the show ended in 1995.

Bialik first came to fame as a fresh-faced teen with a penchant for flowered hats as the title star of "Blossom." After the series' five-season run, Bialik escaped the child-star curse and according to her website went on to study Neuroscience at UCLA, where she received her Ph.D. in 2007. Although Bialik took a break from acting as she finished her studies, she returned to the small screen with her role as the nerdy Amy Farrah Fowler on CBS' "The Big Bang Theory." In addition, Bialik has just released a new parenting guide book "Beyond the Sling: A Real-Life Guide To Raising Confident, Loving Children The Attachment Parenting Way" that draws on her experiences raising her two young sons.

With his trademark "Whoa!" Joey Lawrence stole the show as the dreamy older brother of Bialik on "Blossom." In his post "Blossom" years Lawrence shaved off his trademark locks and reappeared on silver screens in a very different format for the 2006 season of "Dancing with the Stars." In 2010 Lawrence joined teamed up with fellow 90's teen star, Melissa Joan Hart in the ABC Family sitcom "Melissa & Joey."
