Jaleel White (aka Steve Urkel): Where Is He Now? (VIDEO)

Can you remember the days when actor Jaleel White was a part of the TGIF lineup on the hit show Family Matters as annoying next door neighbor Steve Urkel? Yeah, we do too. Sigh, those were the days. But those days are long gone and they’ve got us wondering what did ever happen to the four-eyed super nerd. So, where is Jaleel now?

All grown up, of course! The now 39-year-old California native is still around, and made a return to the small screen over the years in bit parts as well as in a couple of short-lived TV shows. He did, however, make a big reappearance to TV on Dancing With the Stars Season 14 back in 2012 and made it to the Top 7 before being eliminated. That same year, Jaleel was also the host of the SyFy Channel original game show, Total Blackout.

These days, Jaleel is also the proud dad to his amazingly cute daughter, Samaya White, and is currently filming for the animated movie Guardians of Luna.

Looks like Jaleel’s left those over-sized glasses behind and grew into his suave Stefan Urkel alter-ego. Did he do that? He sure did!

Did you know what Jaleel White was up to since his Family Matters fame? Tell us in the comments below!
