Then And Now: Chances Are You Won’t Recognize Some Of These Celebrities From Their Childhood Pictures

As you transition from childhood to adulthood, one of two things happens when it comes to your facial features. You either maintain the same exact baby face as you get older, or puberty gets the best of you and you transform into a completely different looking person.

And when it comes to these Latino celebrities, chances are you might not be able to recognize a few of them.  

1. Selena Quintanilla

Before her long hair and signature front bangs, Selena used to rock this mullet-style pixie cut. Definitely only she could rock this hairstyle, don’t you think so?

2. Shakira

Even though Shakira is recognized for her long blonde locks, her hair doesn’t naturally look like that. Before the start of Shakira’s pop-color hair evolution, she used to rock simple black hair. She looks like a completely different person!

3. JLO

4. Marc Anthony

Talking about Jlo, check how her ex-husband Marc Anthony used to look like! He kinda looks like Kenny G’s doppelgänger, but if Jlo married him, I guess we all have a chance!

5. Juanes

6. Demi Lovato
