The "Cheaper By The Dozen" Cast Re-Created Their Most Iconic Scenes On Instagram And I'm Crying

Kyle and Nigel seriously Neville Longbottomed up.

So, one of my favorite movies as a kid was Cheaper by the Dozen.


It's been almost two decades since the Baker family graced our screens with their antics, but it's still one of my favorite comedies to this day.


Well, on Wednesday, Hilary Duff (who played Lorraine) surprised fans on Instagram with a virtual cast reunion!

The actors made a joint video re-creating their most iconic scenes, and it's so pure. The song "I'm Just a Kid" by Simple Plan also plays in the background — before that was a TikTok trend, it was on the Cheaper by the Dozen soundtrack!

Remember those little red-headed twins, Kyle and Nigel? They're all grown up now!

I don't know about you all, but I feel EXTREMELY old.

Steve Martin himself didn't appear, BUT his character still managed to make an adorable cameo!

Bonnie Hunt (who played Kate, the mom) said the cast reunited to promote the charity organization No Kid Hungry.

Surprise! From the Baker family to yours. We are all in this together. ❤️👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 #wearefamily Help feed families with us: @NoKidHungry

Also!!! Morgan York (who played Kim) and Bonnie had the sweetest interaction on Twitter, and I'm crying:

Also, count how many scenes I’ve placed myself right next to @BonnieHunt_real. My mom had to work her day job during filming. Bonnie truly was my second mom 💛

♥️And always oh so proud of you, then and now! #wearefamily @disney+ @morganyorkwrite #CheaperByTheDozen

On behalf of '00s kids everywhere, thank you to the Cheaper by the Dozen cast for making me smile today!!!



An earlier version of this post misidentified Hilary Duff's character. It has since been corrected. Our bad!
