I was a little bit boy-crazy as a child, but one boy in particular stole my heart when I was about 9-years-old. The only problem? He was rich and famous. Needless to say, it didn't work out.

I desperately wish I had a photo of my childhood bedroom to show you here, but trust me when I tell you that all of my walls (and part of the ceiling) were COVERED with posters. When I got into middle school, I would use my allowance to walk up to Walgreens and buy M and J-14 magazine, and then I'd spend a good hour ripping out all the posters and sticky-tacking them to my wall. About 90% of those posters had cute boys on them. I had Chad Michael-Murray up there, Jesse McCartney, Usher, Ashton Kutcher, Orlando Bloom, Justin Timberlake, and a bunch of other guys that were way too old for me. But my crushes started before middle school. In 4th grade I fell for a singer by the name of Aaron Carter. I remember being totally obsessed with him for YEARS. I consider him to be my first REAL celebrity crush. I actually got to meet him about a year and a half ago in Iowa City, and 9-year-old Courtlin was ecstatic:


I consider myself to be pretty lucky, because a lot of people never get to meet their celebrity crush. Aaron Carter is still out there making music and performing, so I had the opportunity to go check out one of his shows, which was something I never got to do as a child.

Now it's your turn! Who was your very first childhood celebrity crush? It can be a singer, an actor, a character of some sort... heck, it can even be a cartoon! Leave your in the comments!
