Now, Kirk Cameron is known for being the voice of evangelism in the movie industry. He is most probably the most prominent Christian actors existing in today’s world. But there was a time he was a child star. Kirk gained worldwide attention and recognition while he played Mike Seaver in Growing pains (1985 – 1992) even though this was not his first TV appearance.
Date of Birth: October 12, 1970
Zodiac Sign: Libra
When Cameron was nine, he had his first acting job which was in a breakfast cereal advert. In a few years down the line, Kirk became a part of the Seaver family in Growing Pains and in this period, a lot changed for him. Cameron converted to Christianity from Atheism at 17; he was at the height of his fame in Growing Pains when this major change occurred. From that time henceforth, Thomas became conscious of scripts he was taking on; making sure the adult contents was reduced to the minimum.
He found his forever love in Growing Pains and they lived happily ever after. Kirk is an outspoken Christian evangelist and never shies from voicing his Christian based opinions on certain controversial issues. Kirk appears now in just Christian – themed productions like the highly acclaimed drama film Fire Proof (2008) and the Left Behind post-rapture series. Cameron is a family man and he gets his family values from the Bible.
Chelsea Noble (wife)
Duration of Marriage: July 21, 1991 till date
Date of Birth: December 4, 1964
Zodiac Sign: Sagittarius
Growing Pains was more than the series that shot Cameron to limelight; it was where he met his sweetheart. Mike Seaver (his role in the sitcom) had a girlfriend names Kate MacDonald. Yes! You guessed right, Kate was played by Chelsea Noble, his six years senior. Apparently the chemistry both teens shared was more than fictional as they quickly became a thing even while they were off set.
Growing Pains ended in 1992 but before the show ended, the young couple tied the knot on July 21, 1991. At their wedding, only family was present and years after at the Growing Pains reunion, Cameron admitted that if he could go back in years, he would have made a better decision. Kirk was already a born-again Christian as the show was rounding up so he taught it was right to just back out on relationships and friends that were not in same line with his religious views.
Chelsea was born Nancy Mueller and together with her husband co-founded the Firefly Foundation; an evangelical foundation that sponsors free summer camping trips for terminally ill children. In movies, Chelsea stars with her husband as a “kissing double”. Since Kirk became a Christian, he stands unshakably on the fact that he cannot kiss any woman that is not his wife. Because of this, Noble always replaces other actresses in scenes where Kirk has to be romantically involved with the original character.
Jack Cameron (adopted son)
Year of Birth: 1996
Jack was the first adopted child to the Camerons. This was definitely because Chelsea herself was adopted so she is passionate about adoption and sees motherhood as fulfilling. As a couple, Kirk and Noble decided to adopt first so the adopted kids would forever know they were the first choice.
Isabella Cameron (adopted daughter)
Year of Birth: 1997
Isabella has been a young actress on her dad’s Saving Christmas (2014) and Revive Us (2016).
Anna Cameron (adopted daughter)
Year of Birth: 1998
As much as Kirk does not support the idea of raising his kids in the entertainment industry, Anna seems to stand out. Cameron said of his daughter that he feels like she is destined to be a singer or an actress. The second Cameron daughter is exceptionally talented!
Luke Cameron (adopted son)
Year of Birth: 2000
Luke is the last of the adopted Camerons but no one knows any of them is adopted. They are loved equally by the sweet Kirk and Chelsea.
