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 recently.

Molly Ringwald may be the most nostalgia-inducing star for a generation of movie-goers, but she is not one to get sentimental about things like, say, pregnancy.
When asked if she loves expecting twins, she tells Fit Pregnancy with a laugh, "No. I don't hate it, though. There is something wonderful about it."
Ringwald, who announced her pregnancy in December, says that the limitations of carrying twins takes getting used to. "I find it difficult to be restricted in my movements and to feel vulnerable all the time," she says. "I am used to feeling very strong and active."
