More than 40 years after the group of actors known as the Brat Pack reigned over Hollywood, the members now hold a few new titles, including Mom and Dad.

Ahead of the release of the upcoming BRATS documentary, spearheaded by actor Andrew McCarthy, see how all these actors have gone on to create families of their own. From Demi Moore's three adult daughters with fellow Hollywood icon Bruce Willis to Andrew McCarthy's three kids — one of which has followed in dad's acting path — meet the kids and spouses of the Brat Pack's stars.

Demi Moore, who starred 1985's St. Elmo's Fire alongside fellow Brat Packers Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson, Ally Sheedy and Andrew McCarthy, is now mom to three adult daughters, whom she shares with ex-husband Bruce Willis.

The former couple welcomed their first daughter, Rumer, in 1988, before expanding their family in 1991 with Scout and again in 1994 with Tallulah.

Though the couple divorced in 2000 they have remained friendly, and even lived together as one big family during COVID-19 lockdownswith their daughters, plus Willis' wife,Emma Heming Willis, and his two daughters with her.

After appearing in films like St. Elmo's Fire and The Outsiders, Rob Lowe starred in 1990'sBad Influence,where he met his now-wife Sheryl Berkoff. The two were wed the following year and became parents to sons Matthew, whom they welcomed in 1993, and John, who was born in 1995.

"My boys are definitely my greatest achievement," Lowe told PEOPLE in 2018. "I can only take half of the credit — maybe not even half! The rest goes to my wife Sheryl, who's been just an amazing partner."

Pretty in Pink's Andrew McCarthy is a dad three times over! He welcomed his first son, Sam (seen here with his dad in 2022), with college sweetheart Carol Schneider. The two split in 2005 and he later wed his second wife, Dolores Rice, and with her had two more kids, daughter Willow (seen here in 2017) and son Rowan.

McCarthy and his eldest son embarked on a 32-day trip across Spain that the elder McCarthy later documented in the book Walking with Sam: A Father, A Son, and 500 Miles Across Spain.

Molly Ringwald, who starred in beloved movies like The Breakfast Club and 16 Candles, wed her husband Panio Gianopoulosin 2007, though the two have been together for more than 20 years. In 2003, the couple welcomed their first child, daughter Mathilda, before expanding their family in 2009 with the birth of their twins, daughter Adele and son Roman.

15, though in more recent years, Ringwald has brought her kids along to various red carpet events.

Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club star Anthony Michael Hall became a dad for the first time in 2023 when his wife, Lucia, welcomed a son named after Dad: Michael Anthony Hall II.

"I couldn't be happier because I always knew, even when I was a young man, that I wanted to get started later. Here I am at 55, and I’m fully committed," he told PEOPLE of becoming a father. "I’m excited. My wife and I are really into parenting and diving in."

Starring in 1987's Some Kind of Wonderful was more than just an iconic moment for Lea Thompson — it led to her meeting and marrying her husband! Though she initially passed on the project, Thompson changed her mind after her 1986 filmHoward the Duckdidn't perform at the box office, and went on to star in the Howard Deutch-directed classic (written by John Hughes).

Thompson and Deutch married in 1989 and later welcomed daughtersMadelynandZoey Deutch, who are now both actresses themselves.

Jon Cryer, who appeared in '80s films like Pretty in Pink and No Small Affair, is a dad of two! He welcomed his first child, son Charlie, with his now ex-wife Sarah Trigger, and later welcomed a child via adoption with wife Lisa Joyner in 2009.

“What I've learned from raising kids is that control is an illusion,” the actor told PEOPLE in 2024. “You're bringing people into the world and who they become and where they go in the world is really up to them. It's a cliché, but it is all about letting go. It's all about realizing the limits of what you can do and seeing how this soul goes through their lives and the world.”

Martin Sheen's eldest son, Emilio Estevez — who starred in films like The Outsiders, The Breakfast Club and St. Elmo's Fire — has two children from his past relationship with former model Carey Salley: Taylor Levi Estévez (seen here with his dad in 2000) and Paloma Estevez.

Estevez was also married to Paula Abdul for two years in the early 1990s.

Timothy Hutton, who starred in 1981's Taps alongside Tom Cruise, shares one son, Noah, with his ex-wife Debra Winger and later welcomed a second son, Milo (seen here with Dad in 2008), with Aurore Giscard d'Estaing.

After starring in a slew of iconic films like The Breakfast Club and St. Elmo's Fire, Ally Sheedy went on to wed fellow actor David Lansbury. While the two would eventually split, they share one child, Beckett, together.
