Molly Ringwald, who plays the anxious mother of a pregnant teen on The Secret Life of the American Teenager, is expecting twins, a boy and a girl!
It will be the second daughter and first son for Molly, 40, and husband Panio Gianopoulos, 33. They have a 5-year-old daughter Mathilda Ereni. The babies are due in August.
A spokeswoman for The Secret Life of the American Teenager said Molly’s pregnancy will be written into the storyline.
Her pregnancy came as exciting news on the set, said Shailene Woodley, who plays Molly’s daughter on the show.
“Molly’s first child is so gorgeous!” Shailene said. “She’s got the dark hair like her Greek dad but she’s got Molly’s beautiful features. Whenever she brings Mathilda to the set, everybody’s happy.”
Molly starred in such teen classics as Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club, and Sixteen Candles.
On Secret Life, she plays the sympathetic but overwhelmed Anne Juergens – a woman reeling from her husband’s affair, her mother’s Alzheimer’s and, most poignantly, her 15-year-old daughter’s pregnancy.
