Pamela Anderson's Sons Had Zero Idea Mom Was a 'Baywatch' Babe

There are certain celebrities that are known for more than their, um ... star quality. People like Madonna, Prince, and others who have come and gone tend to have a standout attribute that helps make them unforgettable.

In a way, it's a good thing Dylan, 17, and Brandon, 19, didn't grow up knowing their mommy was a coveted sex goddess. From the sound of things, this helped them have somewhat of a normal life that included soccer games and PTA meetings.

At least now they know.
