Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are marking another milestone.

The famous sisters turn 38 on June 13, 2024, and have truly grown up in the spotlight, joining the cast of Full House as Michelle Tanner when they were 6 months old, and going on to careers in movies, TV and fashion in the years that followed.

"We remember small things," Ashley said of their early acting days on a 2010 episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "I'm not sure if they're memories or old footage," added Mary-Kate.

Here, take a trip down memory lane with some sweet throwbacks of the stars.

"We grew up with three comedians who just had fun together," Ashley Olsen told Ellen DeGeneres in 2014 of the sisters' time on Full House alongside Bob Saget, Dave Coulier and John Stamos.

The sisters said they would watch the show once in a while if a rerun crossed their screen, but it was most touching to know how much fans still care.

"People who grew up with us are now having kids and their kids are watching it," Ashley said. "It's still relevant and that's amazing."
