It's hard to believe Keeping Up With the Kardashians first premiered all the way back in 2007. Long before Lamar Odom and Kris Humphries entered the picture, Ryan Seacrest saw something special in this not-yet-famous clan.

"At the heart of the series — despite the catfights and endless sarcasm — is a family that truly loves and supports one another," he told the press before the series premiere. "The familiar dynamics of this family make them one Hollywood bunch that is sure to entertain."

Nine seasons later and Seacrest has proved to be right on the money. Today at least one Kardashian family member is seen in the tabloids every week. Three spinoffs have aired, with Kourtney and Khloé Take the Hamptons coming soon. Finally, Kim, Kourtney, and Khloé Kardashian have more than 42 million Twitter followers combined. Yeah, we didn't expect that either.

As Season 9 continues Sunday night on E!, we're taking a look back from the original season to where the family is today. From pregnancies to divorces, there's still a whole lot to keep up with in this family.

Watch a clip from the new season:

Kim Kardashian

Then: After her infamous sex tape with Ray J was released, Kim was still getting used to her new status as a celebrity in Season 1. "I have 47 missed calls," she told her inexperienced manager, mom Kris  Jenner, "You might need some help." One of those calls came from Hugh Hefner, who wanted Kim to pose naked for Playboy. After getting support from her momager and boyfriend Reggie Bush, Kim agreed. It would be her first of many high-profile photo shoots.

Now: Playboy and Reggie Bush are so 2007! This season alone, Kim will grace the cover of Vogue with her fiancé (now husband), Kanye West. And while Kris may still be her momager, Kim is much pickier about what she decides to work on. She does, in fact, have 1-year-old North West to take care of.

Khloé Kardashian

Then: When we first met Khloé on the show, the outspoken sister was like a second mother to younger sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner. In true Khloé fashion, she explained to the girls all about getting older, including using tampons and becoming interested in boys. Personally, Khloé was still struggling with the death of her father. On the anniversary of his death, she got drunk and was arrested for DUI.

Now: Still dealing with her divorce from Lamar Odom, Khloé is trying to enjoy life again. With a new home and a rumored boyfriend named French Montana, this could be Khloé's time to shine. "You're a hot item in the rap community," Scott teases in the season trailer. Go Khloé!

Kourtney Kardashian

Then: All the way back in 2007, Kourtney was already having relationship drama with Scott Disick. After dating for only a year, rumors began circulating that Scott was unfaithful to his girlfriend. Tensions rose even more when Kourtney missed her period and thought she was pregnant.

Now: Today, the twosome is still together thanks to Scott's improved behavior. Instead of late nights out at the club, Scott chooses to stay home with his woman and their two kids, Mason and Penelope.

Reports just surfaced that Kourtney is now expecting baby No. 3. Does that mean a wedding could be happening soon? "They're very happy as is," an insider told E! News earlier this year. "The tabloids revisit [wedding rumors] constantly but there's no truth to it and never has been."

Watch a sneak peek clip of the new season:

Kris Jenner

Then: From the very beginning, Kris was on a mission to expand her kids' brands and careers. But did she really know what she was getting into? "Every day I run my business, manage two careers, and look after my own family," she said in the show's second episode. "It just gets so insane to keep everything on track."

She also loved being in control. When a nanny was brought into the home to help Bruce take care of Kendall and Kylie, Kris immediately fired her. It also didn't help that she was a very attractive nanny.

Now: Kris still loves to be a part of everyone's business. But it may prove to be too much for Khloé. "I'm going to get someone new to run my sh-- because you're not on it," she tells her motherin a sneak preview. At least Kris can still help raise baby North.

Bruce Jenner

Then: There were early signs of trouble when it came to Bruce and his relationship with Kris. When the three Kardashian sisters traveled to Mexico for a sexy photo shoot, Kris didn't ask Bruce for his OK and didn't tell him the real reason why they were going. "I can't believe my wife of 16 years lied to me," Bruce declared when he surprised the family on location. "This really upsets me."

Now: Although Kris and Bruce claim to still be "best friends," they are now officially separated after 22 years of marriage. This season, Bruce will continue to live in the beach house in Malibu while most of the family will remain in the Calabasas mansion. Bruce will also continue to undergo a physical transformation as he grows out his hair and recovers from plastic surgery.

Rob Kardashian

Then: While studying at the University of Southern California business school, Rob tried his best to stay out of the family drama. In fact, he just wanted to find a hot girl to date. That didn't happen until Season 2, when we were first introduced to Cheetah Girls member Adrienne Bailon.

Now: It's no secret that Rob is struggling with his weight and self-esteem. It reached a low point when he bailed on Kim Kardashian's wedding to Kanye West at the last minute. Now single and on a mission to get healthy, Rob will try his best to become the guy we first met in Season 1.

Kendall Jenner

Then: When she wasn't cheerleading with her friends, Kendall was causing trouble with her sister. One memorable scene happened when Bruce and Kris went away for a couple of days. Being young, hyper girls, they decided to drive babysitter/half-brother Brody Jenner almost insane. Let's just say he was more than happy when the couple came home.

Now: In addition to her projects with Kylie, Kendall is thriving as a professional model. She's walked New York Fashion Week, developed a relationship with Anna Wintour, and was even featured in Vogue.

Most recently, she moved into her very own place. As for having a relationship with best friend Jaden Smith? That's something we're still trying to keep up with.

Kylie Jenner

Then: Before she asked for a huge Sweet 16 birthday or fancy car, Kylie just wanted a dog. When she traveled to a local pet store with her friends in Season 1, she fell in love with an adorable puppy. Unfortunately, Kris's answer to getting an animal was a firm "Hell no!"

Now: When she's not posting Instagram pics for her 9 million followers, Kylie is hard at work on her fashion collection for PacSun. She also just became a writer, releasing a new novel, Rebels: City of Indra. We have to remember she's only 16. She still has to participate in some homeschool.

Keeping Up With the Kardashians airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. on E!.
