Ha! Ohhh, her, I don’t know why when they said Winnie Cooper, I thought of Topanga(Danielle Fishel) from ‘Boy Meets World’. Haha, Congrats to Danica and her husband!!!

I’m really happy for her. Unlike other hollywood stars, she did everything right. After the show she finished school, had her career, wrote books, met the man of her dreams and now starting a family. Good for her.

Yay for Winnie! Loved her on the wonder years! And I agree, she did every thing right and didn’t become the child star casualty – Good for her!

Congrats Danica! I loved you on the Wonder Years! You are as pretty as ever. As a Mom of 3 boys, all I can tell you is to love and embrace every moment of every stage, because it will be gone before you know it! My boys are 20, 18, and 14. Where did the time go? Wishing you both much happiness!
