Believe it or not, it's been 12 years since "Cheaper by the Dozen" was released in theatres. Over that time, the cast of 12 crazy kids have grown up to have successful careers and even have kids of their own! So how did all this happen over 12-years' time? Let's take a look at the cast and where they are now.

Piper Perabo as Nora Baker

Age: 38

Before she played Nora Baker, the eldest sibling, you probably recognized Piper Perabo from her starring role in "Coyote Ugly," alongside John Goodman and Tyra Banks. Since then, Perabo has landed a number of other roles in movies such as "The Prestige," "Because I Said So," and "Looper." Most recently, the 38-year-old played the lead in the TV series "Covert Affairs," which ended its final season last year.

Tom Welling as Charlie Baker

Tom Welling gained fame for his role as Clark Kent in the TV series "Smallville." After a few years on the show, he then landed the role as Charlie, the Baker's rebellious oldest son, in "Cheaper by the Dozen." Welling has appeared in a few other acting roles since then, the most notable being his role in "Parkland," a film drama recounting the events of U.S. President John F. Kennedy's assassination.

Hilary Duff as Lorraine Baker

You just know that any film with Hilary Duff is going to be good. By the time Duff appeared in "Cheaper By The Dozen", she was already the star of her own TV show "Lizzie McGuire", had her own movie spinoff ("The Lizze McGuire Movie"), and had appeared in a number of films (remember "Casper Meets Wendy"?). But most impressively, she did all this by the age of 16! The 27-year-old continues to act today and is also a mom to a three-year-old son named Luca.

Kevin Schmidt as Henry Baker

You'd hardly be able to recognize the boy who played Henry Baker all those years ago. No longer the chubby child, Kevin Schmidt has grown up to be a successful young man with good looks to boot! Before the film, Schmidt played a number of minor TV roles. Today, the actor is recognized as Noah Newman on "The Young and the Restless."

Alyson Stoner as Sarah Baker

Alyson Stoner is also known as the little girl from Missy Elliott's "Work It" video. In February, the 21-year-old proved she still had the moves and released a YouTube clip paying tribute to the rapper who made her famous. Since her backup dancing days and her role in "Cheaper by the Dozen," Stoner has done a lot of voice acting for video games and TV shows such as "Phineas and Ferb" and "The Legend of Korra."

Jacob Smith as Jake Baker

Although Jacob Smith is no longer an actor, he did appear in a number of movie and TV roles in the late 90s and early 2000s. That's why you might recognize him as Owen Salinger from "Party of Five" or Hansel in "Hansel & Gretel." Besides his role in "Cheaper by the Dozen 2," one of Smith's final movie appearances was as the messenger boy in "Troy."

Liliana Mumy as Jessica Baker
