During the final moments of How I Met Your Mother, a gray-haired Ted Mosby asked his kids for permission to date their Aunt Robin. According to a Twitter interview with the actors who played Ted’s kids, Lyndsy Fonseca and David Henrie, the response they gave their TV dad was actually filmed nine years ago because the producers wanted them to look the same.
First of all, it’s pretty impressive that Fonseca and Henrie (both now 27 and 24-years-old respectively) managed to keep the ending of the show secret all of these years. It’s even crazier to think that the writers had always planned for Ted and Robin to end up together (and The Mother to become completely irrelevant to the show’s entire premise — but that’s a different story).
So, after nine long years, what do the two actors look like today?
Ted Mosby, you might have failed to deliver the punchline of your exasperatingly long story, but you did score a huge win by spawning these two cute kids.
