Molly is currently starring in television's The Secret Life of the Teenager, which includes a storyline about a teenage pregnancy. Ringwald also starred as a pregnant teen in the movie For Keeps. According to sources, the pregnancy will be worked into Secret Life. Ringwald joins a near endless list of celebrity parents with twins, although she seems to hang a little more under the radar than most.

Congrats to the happy couple!
