Pregnant Molly Ringwald–Pretty in Pink AND Blue!

molly.jpgI loved her in The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink, but my favorite Molly Ringwald movie is 16 Candles. One minute, she’s freaking out because her panties are being worshipped by a bunch of salivating, adolescent males in the school bathroom, and the next minute, she’s pregnant with twins. Not in the movie, of course.

Now 41 and playing a Mom in TV’s “The Secret Life of an American Teenager,” Molly Ringwald spent her own teenage years playing characters reflecting the lives of teenage girls in the ’70s.

She already has a six-year-old daughter with husband Panio Gianopoulos, and now she’s expecting twins–a boy and a girl. Must be something in the water out in LA, because it seems a lot of Hollywood celebrities are popping out two at a time these days.


Let’s see–there’s J-Lo, Angelina, Rebecca Romijn, Paulette Washington (Denzel’s wife,) Julia Roberts, Beverley D’Angelo, Angela Bassett, newswoman Nancy Grace, Holly Hunter, Geena Davis, Marcia Gay Harden, Tracy Pollan (Michael J. Fox’s wife,) Holly Robinson Peete, Marcia Cross, and the list goes on. Some have two girls, some two boys, and some one of each. Hey, did you know there are far more fraternal twins born than identical twins?

Whichever way, they still require twin baby gifts, and Corner Stork has you covered for every combination. Below from the left, if it’s two girls, we have the gorgeous Girls’ Twin Deluxe Welcome Wagon; for one of each, I love the Twins Celestial Basket, and two boys gets the baseball-themed Boys’ Twin Deluxe Welcome Wagon. It’s double the giggles and double the grins, and double the trouble if you’re blessed with twins. As somebody once said, it’s double the giggles and double the grins, and double the trouble if you’re blessed with twins.
