Melissa Joan Hart, Drew Barrymore, and everyone’s favorite Pink Power Ranger, Amy Jo Johnson, made hearts race in the romantic comedies and iconic ’90s TV shows. So who exactly did they end up happily ever after with? Sorry to ruin your dreams as we look back on the most popular ladies of the ’90s and who they’re with now.
Saved By Tiffani

Tiffani Thiessen was one of the most adored high school students in the ’90s. She starred as Kelly Kapowski, attending Bayview High on NBC’s Saved by the Bell. She has had good looks since she was young which is probably why she won the Miss Junior America pageant when she was just 13. Who’s the lucky guy who ended up with her?
Tiffani Chooses Brady Smith
In the beginning of 2017, Tiffani Thiessen celebrated her 12 year anniversary with actor Brady Smith. The couple has two children together who are still relatively young. She may have been the hottest thing walking the halls of Bayview but now she’s the hottest mother on the block. Tiffani posted a photo to Instagram on their anniversary with a sweet caption.
“Today is a special day. It is the day my husband and I celebrate our 12 years of marriage. I could not have picked a better partner to have beside me. Babe, you are the sails to my boat.” It sounds like this ship has sailed, and Tiffani is taken.
The ’90s Breakthrough Beauty
Kirsten Dunst was three years old when she began her acting and modeling career. Her first gig was a child fashion model for TV commercials. Three years later she made her first film appearance in the short film Oedipus Wrecks. Fast forward to 1994 and you have Dunst in her breakthrough role for the film Interview with the Vampire.
Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt were also in the film and it received ambivalent reviews. However, Dunst’s performance was complimented. Her performance got her the MTV Movie Award for Best Breakthrough Performance and you know once you win a moon man then you’re going places. So, who did she end up with?

Kirsten Dunst is a bit more private compared to others in Hollywood. In early 2017, it was revealed that Dunst was engaged to co-star Jesse Plemons. But getting information from her is like trying to take a toy from a dog’s mouth.
“We have a time frame, but that’s private!” Dunst said when asked about a set wedding date. She was also asked how she knew she met the one and gave a short but sweet answer. “You just do. You do!” Maybe they’ll perform the special Spiderman upside-down kiss at the wedding.
This list wouldn’t be complete without the beautiful Topanga Lawrence, played by Danielle Fishel on Boy Meets World. Fishel, like Tiffani Thiessen, roamed the halls of high school while being supremely adorable with Cory Matthews, played by Ben Savage. If you didn’t have a crush on her then, chances are you know of someone who did.
Topanga was smart, charming and considerate. She was the best girlfriend a boy could ask for. One could only hope she was as spectacular in real life. So who ended up taking this one from you?
He Found Her, But Lost Her
In 2013, Fishel was married to Tim Belusko. As of 2016, the two quietly went their separate ways. But before the split, and even before the marriage, Fishel admitted to having doubts. She put that in the back of her mind, however, because she really loved him and thought it would last forever.
“I was hesitant because he’s seven years younger,” Fishel said in 2013. “But he’s so mature. Now I just want to keep calling him husband. It’s awesome. We’re on the same team forever.” However, the couple ended up divorcing three years later. So there’s still hope that you can end up with her!
Say Hello To Alicia
During the 1990s, Alicia Silverstone was everywhere. The Wonder Years was her first credited acting role in 1992 alongside Fred Savage. One year later, she got her first film role when she landed the lead role in The Crush. Alicia won multiple awards at the MTV movie awards for her performance and boosted her career.
In 1995, she starred in one of her most famous films, Clueless. The movie was a hit and allowed her to sign an $8 million deal with Columbia-TriStar. The role of a sweet but spoiled girl from Beverly Hills allowed her to gain the many adoring fans she so deserved. So where is she now?
The Married Life With Alicia Silverstone
In 2005, Alicia Silverstone officially took herself off the market when she married musician Christopher Jarecki. Sorry to everyone who loved Clueless but these two appear to be the perfect match. The two married in Lake Tahoe and enjoy an outdoorsy, healthy lifestyle together, dating for eight years before they became engaged. Both Silverstone and Jarecki are vegans and animal rights advocates.
They welcomed a son in May 2011, named Bear Blue Jarecki. Of being a mother, Silverstone said, “I’ve been wanting to have a baby since I was two years old – I’m destined to be a mother.”
Your Favorite Witch!
Sabrina the Teenage Witch featured one of the hottest ’90s stars and one hilarious cat. Melissa Joan Hart was the star of this series and she rocked it. Sabrina’s magical complex made for great television and her looks made for great aesthetics. In the ’90s, Hart could do no wrong.
It’s okay to admit that you had a crush on a witch because the era before you had a crush on one as well. Bewitched star Elizabeth Montgomery started it all, so as far as crushing on top class witches goes, Hart is in good company.
The Highs And Lows Of Being Taken
Sorry everyone, this witch has long been off the market. You probably had a better chance before she starting doing Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Hart and her husband Mark Wilkerson have been together for more than a decade and have several kids together. When asked about their secret to a happy marriage, Hart was candid.
“There are highs and lows and I think you’ve got to go through the valleys to get to the hilltops,” Hart said. “You celebrate the good times when you make it through those bad times. My husband and I just accept that we made a commitment to each other and we’re going to stick it out.”
Too Spicy For You
The Spice Girls were huge in the ’90s. They had the love of all female teens and the attention of all guys. Each one of them had a uniqueness to them that made them attractive in a special way. That is especially the case for Posh Spice. The pop star caused many men to have a rapid heartbeat at least once.
You just had to wonder how long it would be until someone snatched her from you. Well, it wasn’t that long at all. Click next to find out who Posh is married to now.
From Spice To Soccer
From dancing on stage in front of thousands to sitting amongst thousands cheering for her man, Victoria Beckham ended up with soccer star David Beckham. They have four children together and somehow the media seems to always imply a narrative that she is not that happy.
“He’s my soulmate,” she said. “He’s the most incredible husband. We compliment each other. He inspires me every day, with the children, with the way he treats me; it just works. We are lucky to have each other. If I really was as miserable as I look in some of those paparazzi pictures, my children wouldn’t be as happy as they are.”
The Ultra Beautiful LeBrock
Take a good look at her. In the ’90s, Kelly LeBrock was all of that and a bag of chips. If you didn’t have a crush on her then your standards must be as high as the stratosphere because she’s got it all. If you recall her movie Hard to Kill with Steven Seagal then you know exactly how gorgeous she is.
She has a great list of films she appeared in during the ’90s but she is also one of those stars that doesn’t get that much recognition and that is partially by choice. She isn’t in the spotlight often but if she had been then, chances are she would be remembered as one of the most beautiful women of her time.
The Seagal Saga
Kelly LeBrock and Steven Seagal were married for nine years. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times and it got even worse after their split. LeBrock handled the aftermath the best way she knew how but it was probably the reason why she stepped out of the spotlight. She is now happily married to Fred Steck but she spilled on the aftermath of her divorce from Seagal.
“When I split with Steven, the divorce was very ugly and details of the case were on the evening news,” she said in an interview. “I didn’t want my kids seeing it, so I simply got rid of the TV. I moved my kids out of L.A. so they could grow up with real people.”
The ’90s Golden Child
Drew Barrymore played in so many great films during the ’90s that quite frankly, it’s hard to keep up. Her name first appeared in E.T. in the ’80s but as far the ’90s go, she was in Batman Forever, Wayne’s World 2, Scream and Poison Ivy just to name a few. Her role in Guncrazy earned her a second Golden Globe nomination.
There is much backstory to her life and upbringing but the word around town is that she was a bit of a wild child. Drew’s godfather is Stephen Spielberg and it is said that he had to tell her to settle down before she got killed. That didn’t stop the tons of men who were crushing hard!
Many Have Tried
Just like she has an extensive list of great films, she has a nice list of those who have tried to be one for her, but have failed. Jeremy Thomas, Tom Green, and most recently, Will Kopelman. After three years Barrymore and Kopelman called it quits in 2016 but Barrymore always spoke highly of him.
“It was never really love at first sight,” she said. “Will struck a lot of my pragmatic sides. He was someone who was always reachable on the phone, someone who was a classy human being, someone who had this incredible blueprint of a family that I don’t have.” Maybe she can find that now with you?
The Mighty Morphin Amy Jo
There have been several women who took on the persona of the Pink Power Ranger, but no one has done it as well as the original: Amy Jo Johnson. As far as everyone on this list goes, Amy Jo is probably top five in the rankings of the most popular ladies of the ’90s.
She had a glowing smile and an amazing body. If you ask anyone who knows about the ’90s then nine times out of ten they will remember this woman and how amazing she was. Who’s the lucky man to have made her theirs?
Olivier Giner Is One Lucky Man
The pink Power Ranger found romance with Olivier Giner and the two have been married since 2009. If you thought anybody else on this list was private, these two might take the cake. There is not much information out there about them other than the amazing fact that they welcomed their first child in 2008. Johnson is older than Giner by five years so that tells you that he must be mature for his age because what grown woman wants anything else? Once again, we’re sorry that you won’t be able to have the Pink Power Ranger to yourself.
Who Didn’t Love Sarah Michelle Gellar?
Sarah Michelle Gellar starred in one of the top TV series of its time, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and graced the big screen in romantic comedies and teen horror films like I Know What You Did Last Summer, Scream 2, She’s All That, and Cruel Intentions.
Sarah’s career started when she was four, discovered by a talent agent where she lived with her mom in New York City. Her career never slowed down, and the down-to-earth actress has achieved a lot of success. You may have never thought you had a chance with her because she’s been taken for a while now.
The ’90s Power Couple Is Still Together
Well, Sarah Michelle Gellar didn’t end up with you, because it was fate that she would be with Freddie Prinze, Jr. The two ’90s stars met back in 1997 while filming …Last Summer, started dating three years later and were married by 2002. The happy couple has stayed strong over the decades and now have two children together.
These two are the definition of ‘power couple’ with their strong acting careers and outside endeavors. Sarah and Freddie give back to charity often and Sarah also shares her love of cooking on TV and published a cookbook.
