Molly Ringwald plays the mother of a pregnant teen on ABC Family's The Secret Life of the American Teenager
– but in real-life she's a new mom to twins!
The 80s icon delivered daughter Adele Georgiana and son Roman Stylianos on Friday, July 10 in Los Angeles.
Born naturally, Adele arrived first at 9:01 a.m. followed closely by her brother at 9:04 a.m.
The twins join big sister Mathilda Ereni, 5 ½. As for the age difference between the siblings, "I actually think it's a good thing considering we're having twins," Ringwald, 41, told Fit Pregnancy
"It would be so much harder with a toddler than with an almost 6-year-old," she explains. "It's exciting, especially since it's a boy and girl ... It’s the best of both worlds."
The Secret Life of the American Teenager
airs Monday evenings at 8 p.m. on ABC Family.
