In a world where tons of groups, shows and movies are having virtual reunions, like The Nanny and High School Musical, it was only a matter of time before one of our all time favourite kids movies got together virtually.

Almost two decades after the iconic flick ‘Spy Kids’ debuted with their first film, fans have been treated to a reunion on Instagram Live.

And it was pretty much as epic as you can imagine.

Alexa PenaVega and Daryl Sabara, who played Carmen and Juni Cortez in the films, had an impromptu catch up on Instagram Live after Daryl and his wife Meghan freaking Trainor just re-watched the Spy Kids movies.

Can we just take a moment to get our heads around the fact that little Juni Cortez is married to pop star Meghan Trainor?! We told you you’d feel old…


Anyway, so Daryl and Meghan were on his Instagram live chatting about fun facts from the film when Alexa sent a request to join in! And to the delight of fans, her face then popped up on the screen.

This was the actually first time that the 31-year-old actress had actually met Daryl’s wife Meghan, and Meghan was fan-girling HARD over Alexa!

“This is crazy,” Meghan said in the live. “Hi! Nice to meet you. I’m your biggest fan. This is insane!”

Alexa and Daryl then continued to reminisce about the film, with both admitting that they still own things from the set of the film. In fact, Daryl’s in-laws actually framed his Spy Kids costume for him as a gift.


Later on in the chat, Alexa’s kids, Coen and Kingston, and her hubby Carlos PenaVega from Big Time Rush, made a little cameo.

“Please tell him I love Big Time Rush,” Meghan said.


Honestly this should go down in history as one of the most iconic Instagram Lives of all time.

Spy Kids first came out in 2001, followed by three more films. And you know what? Self-isolation seems like the PERFECT time to go and re-watch them! BRB.
