Do You Recognize These 12 Latino Celebrities From Their Childhood Photos?

If you’re like us, you love going into that “treasure chest” in your garage that your mami has kept forever: the one with your baby book inside, maybe a baggie with your baby teeth (it’s actually a thing, we swear) and of course, tons of childhood photos. Whether that treasure chest in question is actually a beat-up plastic storage bin, those photos are always pure gold.

Our passion for childhood pictures isn’t just reserved for our own family — turns out, looking at old celebrity photos is just as fun. You’ll never guess who many of these stars are from their childhood photos, but there’s no doubt you can see star quality in all of them. Here are the 12 best Latino celebrity childhood snapshots possibly ever.
