When Spy Kids hit theaters 15 years ago, pretty much every kid thought, “OMG I wish that could be my life!” Because, duh, wouldn’t it be cool to not just have spies as parents, but you know, become a spy yourself?!

The most literally kick-ass family.

But it’s been just a biiiiit of time since we last thought of our young heroes, Carmen and Juni Cortez – played by Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara, respectively. So, we thought it’d be fun to take a look at what our favorite young spies are up to now.

Here’s Alexa Vega (Carmen) in the movie then…

…and on the red carpet at the premiere.

Here’s Alexa now.

Alexa recently starred in Nashville, and off the set is expecting her first child with husband Carlos!

Here’s Daryl Sabara (Juni) in the movie then…

…and on the red carpet at the premiere.

Here’s Daryl now.

These days, Daryl does a ton of voice work for the TV series Ultimate Spider-Man and spends less timing kicking butt, but more time catching more Pokémon.

Kids…they grow up so fast!
