These photos of your mom's hottest childhood crushes are here as a reminder that some of today's DILFs were yesterday's heartthrobs. Some of these sexy celebrities have retained their good looks and there are even those who are even hotter than any young Hollywood celebrities today. Admit it, the men your mother dreamed about marrying one day were total babes. It's no wonder that the famous people featured in this votable list of guys your mom fell in love with as a teen are some of the greatest child stars of all time, while others like the four members of The Beatles, Mick Jagger, and the King of Pop Michael Jackson are considered some of the best rock bands and artists in history. You will also recognize today's top actors like John Travolta and Kurt Russell from their photos taken during their teens.

The votable list of your mom's teen crushes also includes current and long-gone celebs from classic TV shows like The Brady Bunch and The Monkees. These handsome boys and men come from different backgrounds, some were even born outside of the U.S., but one major thing that ties them together is that your mother, or perhaps an aunt, cousin, or possibly even (yikes) grandmother, had posters and kissable centerfolds of these guys all over their room. The popularity of teen idols gave rise to popular teen magazines such as Tiger Beat, Top of the Pops, and 16.

Who are the hottest Hollywood celebs that were so dreamy that your mom drew hearts all over their photos? This list of vintage teen idols features photos of these hot celebs at their prime. There are plenty of sexy photos of older stars on this list of your mom's hottest childhood and teenage crushes. Take your pick and vote for your favorite from the gallery below, or re-rank this list your way. Want to feel even more nostalgic?
