And of course, BCKOnline was right in the middle of the premiere action with red carpet coverage and more.  Take a look below as our LA Correspondent @robinayers had the perfect spot on the carpet to talk to a few of the stars arriving for the premiere.

In addition to interviewing the stars on the red carpet, we got a first-hand look from one of the Cheaper By The Dozen stars themselves, Mykal-Michelle Harris, as she took over BCKOnline social media.

If the adorable Mykal-Michelle looks familiar, then she should. In addition to Cheaper By The Dozen, the talented young rising star has been seen on ABC’s Mixed-ish, the new season of Raven’s Home, as Alice Baxter, Big Little Lies, among others.
