Congratulations Molly!  The 80s Brat Pack star delivered twins Adele and Roman on July 10th, and made 5 year old daughter Mathilda a big sister twice over.  Now the mother of 3 will be playing mom to a much older daughter in The Secret Life of the American Teenager, which airs a new episode on ABC Family tonight.

Ringwald plays mother to a teenager handling her own baby in this drama nominated for several Teen Choice awards.  but I’m not sure how I feel about my teenage role model playing the mom of a teenager.  And Molly wasn’t so sure herself, according to her interview with Fit Pregnancy.

I took on the role of playing a mother of a teenager before I was there in my own real life. Age-wise, it certainly works, but in our society most people are having kids when they are older, so it feels like I skipped a few steps.

Tune in and let us know what you think.  We bet Molly still looks Pretty in Pink.
