Did you like your babysitter growing up? Do you even remember who they were or where they are now? Were they sweet and gullible or emotional and full of teenage angst? Or were they possibly a budding celebrity? We all have fond (or weird!) memories of those times left alone watching movies together. But what if the person looking out for you while your parents were gone turned out to be a future celebrity? Try and remember the teens that took care of you while you look at this amazing list of celebrities who babysat other celebrities.

Surprisingly, there are many celebrities who watched younger up-and-coming celebrities. This list of celebrities who babysat other celebrities includes a mixture of actors, actresses, musicians, journalists, and even a former presidential hopeful. This list will show you two celebrities, the first being the babysitter and the second being the child. 

Some of these pairings may totally surprise you! You’ll learn who did it for the money or just to be nice. You will also learn one celebrity had a major crush on his celebrity babysitter. Also, keep an eye out for which kids even usurped their babysitter in the more “famous” category.
