Before we tell you how old Liam Payne was when he became a father for the first time, can we just say that we’re absolutely shocked that it’s been a decade since One Direction’s first album? Where in the world did the years go? Anyway, Liam Payne, of the English boyband, became a father in 2017, when he was just twenty-four years old.
He welcomed the child into the world with none other than X-Factor judge, Cheryl Cole.
It’s no surprise that Charlie Sheen has a few kids, and you might have heard over the years about his custody issues with ex-wife Denise Richards. The reason Sheen makes our list, though, is because he was in fact a younger man (read: a much younger man) when he became a father for the very first time.
He was just nineteen when he welcomed his firstborn, Cassandra Estevez, with his high school sweetheart, Paula. He then of course went on to have a few more kids, bringing his total to five!
The next spot on our list goes to a twenty-four-year-old father. We basically consider anyone under twenty-five to be a young celebrity parent for the first time.
Anywho, Louis Tomlinson, who, you may remember from British boyband One Direction, welcomed his first bub in 2016, when he was just 24! In a tragic twist, he lost his mother shortly before his baby Freddie was born.
Born in Waco, Texas, Ashlee Simpson is best known as the sister of Jessica Simpson. At the time her sister was popular, Ashlee was on the radar, and seemed as though she’d be the next big thing in pop. We can’t believe her 30th birthday was so long ago!
She had her first baby, Bronx Wentz, with Fall Out Boy member Pete Wentz, in 2008. Ashlee was just shy of her 24th birthday — not a teenager, but still pretty young.
Now John Lennon, the famed Beatle, is well known for his highly documented relationship with Yoko Ono — but first, did y’all know that the two started their relationship when John was still married to someone else? It was a lady called Cynthia Powell, with whom he had his first child, Julian, in 1963.
At the time, Lennon was just twenty-two years of age. He then, of course, fathered another child with Ono, a son, Sean.
