Several readers remember Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar getting married and having a baby around 2003 or 2004.
When I first read a comment about that, I had to look it up. At the time (April 2011), Wikipedia didn’t mention either the marriage or children. It said that Freddie Prinze Jr. had dated Sarah Michelle Gellar, but they broke up. There was no mention of children.
That didn’t fit my memories, though I can’t claim that I thought the event was as far back as 2003. (However, it was prior to 2009.) I didn’t think about it again until I was writing this article. I always double-check my sources and try to link to them.
The couple have two children, a daughter named Charlotte Grace Prinze, who was born on September 19, 2009,and a son, Rocky James Prinze, born in September 19, 2012.
It seems odd that those events — the marriage or the first child — weren’t mentioned when I checked Wikipedia, back in 2011. However, I didn’t keep a screenshot, so I can’t claim it’s a “Mandela moment” or a “slide” from one timestream to another.
Here are the comments from this website, starting in April 2011, when — as I usually do — I double-checked (at Wikipedia) to be sure the comment really did describe something not in this current timestream.
I had a similar experience but it was regarding the birth of Freddi Prince Jr and Sarah Michelle Gellar’s child… I’m positive that I saw it mentioned on the news back in 2003-04 that they were expecting… It was either the longest pregnancy in history or something similar to the above events… Also, I’ve had a crush on Freddi Prince Jr since I was about nine… So it would have been something I was paying attention to…

And, as Lani above says, the Gellar-Prince child. I thought that happened years ago, too.

The Freddy Prince baby with Sarah also was in the news. I was so happy for him, since I loved his dad.
I remember … freddie prinze’s baby…
…Then I read the comments regarding Freddie Prince Jr and Sarah Michelle Gellars child. I immediately thought ‘what are they talking about, they have two children and there first was born quite a few years ago’. Then I searched it on google and see that their first child is only 3! Now I’m confused.
I remember them having a child a lot longer ago, as the previous posters said possibly around 2004 or 2005. And I remember them having their next child and thinking there was quite an age gap between them. I also remember their second child being born longer ago than September last year!
Now I just don’t know. I’m second guessing myself as I type this. Maybe I have it wrong. I do remember them being married for quite a while before having a child so maybe I just have myself mudded up. Things often seem to be either longer ago/not as long ago as you thought.
Can any readers shed light on this? The consistency of the time frame is the big issue.
