Hollywood Children Celebrate Birthdays in Tinseltown

Birthday wishes go out to two very famous children of Hollywood. Our first birthday wishes goes to former Full House Star Jodie Sweetin. Sweetin, age 30, was the middle sister Stephanie Tanner on this sitcom Full House.   Set in San Francisco, the show chronicles widowed father Danny Tanner, who, after the death of his wife, enlists his best friend Joey Gladstone and his brother-in-law Jesse Katsopolis to help raise his three daughters, D.J., Stephanie, and Michelle. The show originally ran in primetime from September 22, 1987 to May 23, 1995 on ABC.  After lots of ups and downs with career, marriage and drug addiction Sweetin seems to look better than ever. She seems to have overcome the Hollywood downfall of a lot of child actors succumb to.

Our second birthday wishes goes out to Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise’s adopted son, Conner, now 17. Connor and sister, Bella, adopted at birth spent the night celebrating at Staples Center. It was in the younger days of Cruise and Kidman that I can remember them being photographed in Tinseltown with the kids. Now, at 17 and 19 both children seem like well adjusted successful adults.  Cruise and Kidman divorced after 10 years of marriage and each re-married, Cruise to Katie Holmes and is now proud papa of the best dressed 5 year old Suri. Kidman married country singer Keith Urban and have two daughters.
