Winnie Cooper

'Wonder Year's' Danica McKellar Is Having A Baby

danica_mcKellar_big_bang_theory_cbsWow. Winnie Cooper is going to be a mom. That's right, the kid we watched – some of us in original broadcast episodes and not reruns – is having a baby. 'The Wonder Years'' actress Danica McKellar is pregnant. It's the first child for her and husband Mike Verta.

Danica told People magazine, "I'm nearing the end of my first trimester and I'm so excited – I've been bursting to tell people." The 35-year-old veteran of 'The Wonder Years' -- and brainiac mathematician -- has been working on a new book, her third, called 'Hot X: Algebra Exposed.' It comes out in August if you're ready to pre-order it!

Big Bang Theory meets the Wonder Years

danica_mcKellar_big_bang_theoryDoes it take a brainiac to play a brainiac? No, of course not. But when Danica McKellar guests on The Big Bang Theory on January 11, that's what they'll get. Not only is Danica well-remembered as the nearly-perfect Winnie Cooper on The Wonder Years, Kevin's neighbor and the girl he always adored, she's also smart as a whip. She has the degrees to prove it.

A couple of years ago, TV Squad put Danica In the Limelight. Ryan learned that Danica had graduated Summa cum Laude from UCLA with a degree in Mathematics. She is the McKellar in the Chayes-McKellar-Winn Theorem.

The seven TV neighbors you'd want in real life

ned flandersThe wacky neighbor is a sitcom staple. Neighbors like Kramer from Seinfeld, Lenny & Squiggy from Laverne & Shirley, and Carl Brutanunanadilewski from Aqua Teen Hunger Force make for great entertainment. They're always part of some wild adventure or providing comic relief. But, let's face it: these people would make terrible neighbors in real life.

The real neighbors you want are ones who are courteous, quiet, and friendly. Or hot. Here are the seven television neighbors you'd want in real life:

Winnie Cooper becomes Inspector Mom

danica mckellarI realize that Danica McKellar is probably sick to death of being called 'Winnie Cooper', but how else was I supposed to get your attention? The actress, famously known for her role on The Wonder Years, will star in a funky online/broadcast experiment for LMN television, a sister network of Lifetime. McKellar will play the title role in Inspector Mom, a movie about a stay-at-home mother who bakes cookies, runs a carpool, and chases down criminals. She's either a 30-something Veronica Mars, or a 30-something Jessica Fletcher.

Here's where it gets funky:

The movie version of Inspector Mom airs on November 18th at 8 pm. Then the mystery moves to the internet, LMN.tv, where 8 short video segments will be released through April.

You are officially old: Fred Savage is a dad

Fred SavageOK, I guess it doesn't really make me feel old, since The Wonder Years was quite some time ago. But still, little Kevin Arnold is a dad? It probably doesn't help that I already feel old because my nephew had a baby a couple of weeks ago.

Fred Savage and his childhood sweetheart (awwwwww) wife Jennifer Lynn Stone welcomed a 6 pound, 13 ounce boy on Saturday night. Fred and Jennifer got married in 2004, but don't worry fans, he remains good friends with former costar Danica McKellar (Winnie).

Winnie Cooper, hottest math geek ever

by Anna Johns, posted Jul 14th 2006 8:02PM
danica mckellarYes, I'm a girl. But I'm not blind. I know that Danica McKellar, the actress who played Winnie Cooper on The Wonder Years, is drop-dead gorgeous. She's also wicked smart. As you may remember from Ryan's retrospective earlier this year, McKellar graduated from UCLA with a degree in Mathematics. She's putting that knowledge to work by writing a book for middle-school girls about how to master math. It's called 'Math Doesn't Suck' and it's being published next year by Hudson Street Press. McKellar said she wants to help break the stereotype about how only geeks are good at math. OK. So she probably wouldn't enjoy my headline.

If you're not into math books for middle school girls (and I would totally question you if you were), you can see McKellar soon on the Lifetime series, Inspector Mom, and on her new Yoga DVDs, Daily Dose of Dharma. You just saw the word 'yoga' and forgot everything I wrote about math, didn't you?

In the Limelight: Danica McKellar

by Ryan j Budke, posted Jan 6th 2006 8:39AM
Danica McKellarFor just about every guy growing up in the late eighties and early nineties, Winnie Cooper was your dream girl. She was gorgeous, intelligent, funny and always kind of had that "damsel in distress" aura about her. She was one of the best parts about tuning into The Wonder Years, and so was the actress who portrayed her, Danica McKellar.

Danica started acting early, with a couple of guest appearences on The Twilight Zone, before landing the role of Winnie on The Wonder Years. The show had a great, award winning five year run, but once it ended, Danica did what many child stars fail to do: bow out gracefully. Besides doing a few voiceovers for cartoons, Ms. McKellar spent the next couple of years at UCLA. In 1998, she graduated from there Summa cum Laude, with a degree in Mathematics. Remember the next time you use the Chayes-McKellar-Winn Theorem, because she actually discovered that! Yea, I've never used it either and I have no idea what it means.
