Here Is What The Young Siblings From The ‘Spy Kids’ Look Like Now

When thinking back on the films of our youth, most of you probably remember the classic Spy Kids. Even now, after many years since the time it was released, we can’t help but watch to reminisce. I mean, it was exactly the kind of movie children preferred. Or at least, me. Kids who were spies, isn’t that awesome? It was colorful, a bit strange, fun, multicultural, and exciting as it gets.

Our favorite characters (apart from the Cortez couple who was played by Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino as Gregorio and Ingrid Cortez, and the great Danny Trejo as Machete) were, of course, the siblings Carmen and Juni Cortez.

But, 2001 is far away from 2019, the world has changed a lot, and our favorite spy kids are not kids anymore. Daryl Sabara and Alexa Vega, who played the characters of Juni and Carmen are all grown up now and married.

Here’s a glimpse from 2001. Weren’t they simply adorable?

Even though he is not a spy kid anymore, he has still continued acting. Recently, he appeared in Netflix’s Medal of Honor, a docudrama series which re-creates inspiring true stories of eight recipients of the nation’s highest military honor.

Moving on to their ‘spy mother’, Carla Gugino, she has also played an iconic mom yet again. She has played the character of Olivia Crain in Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House:

Finally, we are glad to see the Cortez family is doing fine, and Gregorio and Ingrid’s kids are having the time of their lives.

But, you know, a sequel of ‘Spy Kids’ would do no harm to nobody. The All Grown Up Spy Kids, maybe?
