Molly Ringwald Welcomes Twins! (But Neither Is Named Shaun Daily)

Try as he may, America’s favorite pod jockey can’t catch a break in his quest to, ah, break into showbiz.

On June 22 – just 18 days before the ’80s teen idol gave birth – TV Talk host Shaun Daily chatted with Molly Ringwald about her latest role, as Anne Juergens on ABC Family’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager.

“Congratulatons on the pregnancy,” said Shaun at the outset of the interview. “Do you have names picked out yet?”

CAPTION: "I actually preferred that," new mom Molly (above) told us pre-partum of having her pregnancy incorporated into her hit series.

"I actually preferred that," Molly (above) told us pre-partum of having her pregnancy incorporated into her hit series.

“Not yet, buy we’re keeping a list,” said Molly.

“I could recommend Shaun if you want,” added our unabashed host – prompting the ready-to-pop actress to chuckle.

But in the end, Molly and hubby Panio Gianopoulos elected not to make either one of their fraternal twins, born Friday in Los Angeles, Shaun’s namesake.

Instead, the proud parents named their daughter Adele Georgiana and their son Roman Stylianos.

Later in the show, Molly, 41, whose pregnancy was written into Secret Life, revealed her rationale for supporting that decision.

“I did not want to go a whole season walking around with towels in front of me,” she said.

“I also thought it was interesting, considering that my daughter [on the show] was pregnant in the previous season – having her go through the whole thing again.

“And having my grandchild be older than my new child is kind of funny, too.”

Becoming a Mother: From Party to Parent

Kristen Chase, host of Motherhood Uncensored welcomes author Rebecca Woolf to BlogTalkRadio for a discussion of her new memoir.

RockabyeMotherhood Uncensored hosts Becoming a Mother: From Party to Parent tonight at 9pm ET (click to listen), featuring author Rebecca Woolf and her new memoir “Rockabye: From Wild to Child.”

Rebecca makes the transition from life as an odd-job doing commitment-phobic, chain-smoking, irresponsible party-girl to life as a work-at-home mother with a different kind of social life. Throughout, Rebecca doesn’t relinquish the token qualities of her free-spirited, pre-baby self; rebelling against both the “soccer mom,” and “young mother” stereotypes, challenging herself to grow up without outgrowing her dreams, and most importantly embracing motherhood without a map.

Sound like you or someone you know? Join Kristen and Rebecca tonight for a lively chat about motherhood, uncensored.

As a side note, Kristen was recently featured and interviewed on The Today Show. Congrats on that achievement, Kristen.
