She Played Kerry on "8 Simple Rules." See Amy Davidson Now at 42.

The actor went from TV teen to being a mother herself.

When 8 Simple Rules was airing from 2002 to 2005, viewers got to know the three teens of the Hennessy family. There was popular oldest daughter Bridget (Kaley Cuoco), youngest son Rory (Martin Spanjers), who liked to get his sisters into trouble, and middle child Kerry, who was sarcastic, smart, and often getting into disagreements with her big sister. Kerry was played by Amy Davidson, who is actually six years older than her big TV sister.

Davidson was in her mid-20s when she was playing a teen on 8 Simple Rules, and now, the actor is 42 years old. She is still acting today and also started a website where she documents life with her family. Read on to find out more about Davidson today.

She was already acting before 8 Simple Rules.

When Davidson joined 8 Simple Rules, she had already been on TV. She was in the television movie The Truth About Jane and on an episode of Judging Amy. Most notably, Davidson had a recurring role on the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen series So Little Time. It was getting this role that led her to 8 Simple Rules.

"At first it was a trip because I watched Full House growing up—remember I was not a child star," she told Sitcoms Online in 2013. "So working with these girls took a minute to adjust to! If it wasn't for So Little Time I may have not gone back to my roots and remained a redhead! I then decided to stay red and 8 Simple Rules came a few months later. So many reasons to say thank you."

She's still an actor today.

Davidson married Kacy Lockwood in 2010. The couple welcomed their son, Lennox, in 2016. The actor shared her birth story and experience with postpartum depression in an article she wrote for People.
