This Is What The Cast Of ‘Cheaper By The Dozen’ Look Like Today.
In 2003, a movie called Cheaper by the Dozen was released in theaters. The story centers on the Baker family, and they're unlike any other family. The parents face the daily challenge of raising 12 kids. To make matters worse, football coach Tom (Steve Martin) and his wife Kate (Bonnie Hunt) decide to move from their small town of Midland, Illinois, to the larger city of Evanston when Tom is offered a higher paying position.
Despite their protests, he promises the family that the move will make them happier and stronger. Shortly after, Kate departs for a national book tour, leaving the kids in Tom's hands. As you can guess, this is a recipe for disaster. Did we mention that there are some troublesome twins in the mix? Don't forget the teen hormones.
Some fun facts: Even though Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt played parents for 12 kids, neither of them had any real life parenting experience at the time. Also, the film was based on the real-life Gilbreth family, who had six boys and six girls.
Below we've included some photos of the cast 13 years later. Can you believe it's been that long?

Ashton Kutcher as Hank, Nora's Boyfriend
Ashton Kutcher plays Nora's boyfriend who is obsessed with his looks, not unlike his role as Michael Kelso in That '70s Show.
Who could forget about the scene when the dog attacks him after the kids soak his underwear in meat? By the way, that was Steve Martin's idea.
Today, he continues work as an actor but is also a producer and investor. He is now married to former co-star Mila Kunis and they are expecting their second child.
