Latino Celebrities Before And After: These Photos Will Leave You Wondering What’s Real In Life

Yes, at some point or another celebrities were like us ‘normal’ people. It’s always nice to see celebrities sharing their photos from the past on the internet because it proves that we all have to start somewhere. Here’s a couple of celebrity throwbacks that will make you look twice.

Ba-Ba-Ba-Baby Bad Bunny! The Latin trap star shared a picture of himself as a child on Instagram and it’s absolutely precious! His curly hair is totally non-existent now as he shaves his hair into that recognizable v-shape we all know and love.

At a young age, Becky G knew she was going to be a star! If you dive into the depths of YouTube, you’ll stumble across Becky G’s videos from eight years ago. From teenager to mujer, we saw Becky G grow up in to one of the most popular artists. Before entering the Latin music scene, Becky G’s greatest hit was “Shower,” which was released 5 years ago. 

Maluma

Maluma BABY! The Colombian singer recently shared a picture of himself as a kid that will make you say ‘awww, que lindo.’ There are people that look nothing like their younger selves, but there are others who still have that same baby face⁠—Maluma is one of them. Despite the beard and dyed hair, the youthful expression on his face remains. 

Cardi B

Ah yes, the picture of Cardi B as a young girl that went viral as a meme for all the right reasons! First, Cardi B was a super cute kid. Second, the picture of her, hand on her hip and forcing a smile, is relatable. We’ve all been in that kind of situation as a kid. On top of all of this, Cardi B still looks the same and the sass she served when she was 5-years-old has only magnified. 

J Balvin

J Balvin is almost unrecognizable in this picture! However, his nose really gives it away. Throughout the years, J Balvin’s hair has seen an evolution of its own. From afro, to short, and even a bright pink, we have seen his hair change drastically.

This a a double before and after, can you guess why? J Balvin is also in this picture. Before they both became the stars that they are now, the two sang together at a party hosted by Karol G’s family. What a small world, right? Although Karol G looks noticeably younger in the photo, a lot of her features have remained the same.

Look at that hair! Before becoming Rogelio De La Vega on the popular show, “Jane the Virgin,” Jaime Camil was a big celebrity on Mexican television; he starred in the well-known telenovela “La Fea más Bella.” 

America Ferrera


The movies that come to mind when I think of America Ferrera are a “Real Women have Curves” and “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.” Since then, Ferrera has come a long way in her career. She is also into activism and in 2007, she was named as one of Time magazine’s Most Influential People. 

Sofia Vergara

Sofia Vergara recently shared this throwback picture of herself in Miami Beach, Florida. The now 47-year-old has aged gracefully, not looking that different compared to when she was 18. 

Diane Guerrero

Looks familiar? “Orange is the New Black” star, Diane Guerrero, mirrored her childhood photograph for the cover of her memoir, “In the Country we Love.” The two images, side-by-side, are a reminder of the youth Guerrero lost due to the deportation of her family. Guerrero has become a well-known actress that advocates for the rights of immigrants. 

Shakira

These hips don’t lie and Shakira does not look a day over 40. In this picture, Shakira is 21 years old and she still has the same care-free and youthful look. Kind of hoping we see the red hair make a come back one day. 

Natti Natasha

Natti Natasha looks unrecognizable in this picture! If she wouldn’t have posted this, I would have never guessed that this was a throwback of the Dominican singer. 

Jennifer Lopez

It goes without saying, Jennifer Lopez has aged like the finest wine ever existed. J.Lo recently turned 50 and went all out to celebrate in style. 

Pitbull

Mr. Worldwide, took to Instagram to share a super cute photo of himself with his mother. 

Zoe Saldana

Can you spot Zoe Saldana? She’s the little girl on the far left. Saldana looks a lot like her mother, proving that it’s all the genes. 

Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita Nyong’o had bangs way before they became popular. In the Instagram caption, Nyong’o gives a shout-out to her fuller eyebrows. #ThickBrowsForTheWin!

We all went through our awkward stages (some more so than others) ⁠— it’s a fact of life. Also, transformations don’t happen over night! It takes time to find the right style for you.

She Moved Up The Ranks From Janitor To Nurse Practitioner, Now She’s Viral

She Moved Up The Ranks From Janitor To Nurse Practitioner, Now She’s Viral

Talk about a dream fulfilled.

For ten years, Jaines Andrades harbored her desire to move up from her custodial position at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, Massachusetts to nurse. Now, ten years later, as an RN she’s excelled well past her drams.

Andrades worked her way through nursing school while working at Baystate Medical in Springfield, Massachusetts, as a janitor.

Ten years ago, Andrades accepted a position as a custodial staff member at Baystate Medical Center with big dreams of being a nurse. Born to Puerto Rican parents Andrades moved from her family home in Springfield, MA in 2005 when she was 14 years old. From there she and enrolled as a student at Putnam Technical-Vocational Academy with hopes of moving up the ranks as a nurse.

“As I got older and approached graduation I just didn’t see how a little girl like me could ever become a lawyer. I didn’t see it as something that was possible for me, so I got discouraged from the idea,” Andrades explained according to Masslive.com.

That all changed after she struck up a conversation with a nurse during a doctor’s visit for her mother. According to Andrades, the nurse tipped her off on the benefits of nursing. “He told me about the program to become a nurse, and, the more he talked, I just thought, ‘Yeah, I can do this.’ It’s a respectable profession, and I could provide for myself financially, so the idea grew from there.”

Soon after she enrolled at Holyoke Community College, ticked off all of her pre-requisites and a handful of introductory nursing classes. Then, in 2010, she transferred to Elms College.

The same year she transferred, Andrades applied for a job in Baystate’s Environmental Services Department and became a custodian at the hospital.

Facebook

“It’s tough to be the person that cleans. If I had to go back and do it again, I would. It’s so worth it,” Andrades explained in an interview with WBZ-TV.

In a Facebook post, Andrades wrote about her journey from hospital custodian to nurse practitioner and posted a picture of all three of her IDs.

Andrades’ story went viral after she shared her experience to Facebook.

Speaking about her journey from custodian to nurse practitioner, Andrades shared a picture of all three of her IDs.

“Even if it was cleaning, as long as I was near patient care I’d be able to observe things. I thought it was a good idea,” the RN explained in her interview before sharing that her favorite part of being a nurse has been her ability to provide patients with comfort. “I just really love the intimacy with people.”

“Nurses and providers, we get the credit more often but people in environmental and phlebotomy and dietary all of them have such a huge role. I couldn’t do my job without them,” she went onto explain. “I’m so appreciative and like in awe that my story can inspire people,” Andrades told WBZ-TV. “I’m so glad. If I can inspire anyone, that in itself made the journey worth it.”

There’s A Reason This Brutally Honest Adoption Ad For A ‘Demonic Man-Hating Chihuahua’ Named Prancer Went Viral

There’s A Reason This Brutally Honest Adoption Ad For A ‘Demonic Man-Hating Chihuahua’ Named Prancer Went Viral

Adopter be ware.

That’s the message that a desperate New Jersey foster mom shared in a recent plea to animal lovers potentially interested in adopting a Chihuahua named Prancer. In a viral post shared on Facebook, animal foster mom Tyfanee Fortuna attempted to make an appeal to adopters on behalf of the dog whom she describes as a “haunted Victorian child in the body of a small dog that hates men and children.”

The post didn’t take long to go viral.

In a shockingly honest post, Fortuna spoke on the personality traits of the dog named Prancer on social media.

“There’s not a very big market for neurotic, man-hating, animal-hating, children-hating dogs that look like gremlins,” Fortuna underlined in the post shared to Facebook. “But I have to believe there’s someone out there for Prancer, because I am tired and so is my family. Every day we live in the grips of the demonic Chihuahua hellscape he has created in our home.”

It didn’t take long for Fortuna’s comedic Facebook post about Prance to amass nearly 64K shares.

“Prancer only likes women. Nothing else,” another portion of the post explained. “He hates men more than women do, which says a lot. If you have a husband don’t bother applying, unless you hate him.”

Smitten viewers of the post who were interested in Prancer were thankfully quick to request a chance to adopt him.

“We are still accepting applicants who are within a 3- to 4-hour radius of New Jersey, as we are still sifting through applications and trying to pick out his best fit,” Fortuna explained to Today in an interview. “A lot of people have applied who have husbands and pets, and we’d prefer he go to a home with just women and no other pets.”

Fortuna works as foster mom for the Oak Ridge, New Jersey-based Second Chance Pet Adoption League and is hopeful that someone will help Prancer find a suitable and loving home. 

WhileFortuna was sure to underline some of Prancer’s more intense traits, she also listed those that plenty would find loveable.

“He is loyal beyond belief, although to tell you a secret his complex is really just a facade for his fear. If someone tried to kill you I can guarantee he would run away screeching. But as far as companionship, you will never be alone again,” she wrote of the sweetie. “He likes to go for car rides, he is housebroken, he knows a few basic commands, he is quiet and non-destructive when left alone at home, and even though we call him bologna face he is kind of cute to look at.”
