Those who grew up in the '80s will always remember Soleil Moon Frye as Punky Brewster, but Frye doesn't mind -- she takes it as a compliment. "I'm proud of that role," she says in the above clip from "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" "I hold Punky very close to my heart." "I love that Punky was groundbreaking in her style and she taught me to very much be unique and to be who I am," Frye says. "Punky and I are so much this same person, in so many ways." These days, Punky is all grown up. Frye has been married to TV producer Jason Goldberg for 15 years and the couple has two children with a baby boy on the way. "When I became a mom, I was like, 'Wow, this is a lot harder than people make it out to be,'" Frye says. "I was walking out of the house with my clothes on inside out, with spit-up in my hair -- I was a mess.
