She was the ’90s sweetheart that made hearts flutter as the cheerleading queen, Kelly Kapowski, in the iconic sitcom, Saved by the Bell. Now, 30 years later, Tiffani Thiessen, 49, has proved she’s still got it, stunning fans with an age-defying swimwear snapshot.
Thiessen, mother of two, recently shared family holiday snaps on social media that included stunning selfies of her in swimwear. The actress joined her husband, Brady Smith, and their two kids in a hot tub against a picturesque forest backdrop, looking radiant in a chic black bikini and matching trucker hat.
This delightful family outing included a visit from one of Smith’s relatives, Jill Smith, who shared photos from her happy visit. One image showcased Thiessen in a wetsuit on the beach, flanked by her son and one of Jill’s sons. A selfie with Jill had the actress flaunting her flawless complexion as both ladies beamed into the camera, sporting chunky black glasses.
Aged eight, Thiessen broke into stardom with a commercial, encouraged by her family towards an acting career. Her rise to fame accelerated with Saved by the Bell, where she starred alongside Dennis Haskins and Mario Lopez. This beloved sitcom remains the hallmark of her career, despite her successful roles in other TV shows like Beverly Hills, 90210, White Collar, and Alexa & Katie.
Thiessen’s stint as Kelly Kapowski spanned from 1989 to 1993, after which she was part of two spin-off shows, The College Years and The New Class, which ran until 2000. Fans were thrilled to see the series rebooted in 2020, proving that our love for the ’90s never faded.
Whether it’s a hot tub in California or the high school halls of Bayside, Thiessen continues to dazzle fans with her timeless beauty and talent. Thiessen’s journey is truly the stuff of Hollywood dreams, from her humble beginnings in commercials to her established career on the small screen.
