Prepare to have your minds blown, people, because Nathan Kress is turning 28 years old on Tuesday, November 18. The actor was only 14 when he starred in iCarly, which means it has been more than 13 years since the Nickelodeon show came out. That’s right, it premiered on September 8, 2007, and we cannot believe how fast time has flown by.
As fans know, the iconic series went on for six seasons before coming to an end on November 23, 2012. It also starred Miranda Cosgrove, Jennette McCurdy, Jerry Trainor and Noah Munk, and it was about a young girl named Carly Shay who is propelled into stardom after her Internet show became a huge success. It was a huge part of a lot of our childhoods, so the fact that it’s almost been two decades since it came out is seriously making us feel old.
But wait, what are the stars doing now, you ask? In honor of Kress’ birthday, we decided to check in on them all, and boy, have they come a long way. Get this — some of them have become parents and welcomed kids of their own! Here’s what the cast of iCarly is up to these days…
