There's almost no one who hasn't heard about prolific comedian actress and talk show host, Whoopi Goldberg, born Caryn Johnson. Despite having hard times at an early age, she beat all odds and became an A-list actress, known in the entire world. 

She became a mother at 18 y.o.

After having undergone a serious treatment with her former drug counselor, Alvin Martin, the two fell for each other instantly and got married. A bit later, in 1973, Whoopi gave birth to her only daughter, Alexandrea Martin or simply Alex.
