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.

“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.”

It’s a Devil-May-Care Edition of ‘The Mix’

In a Daily Mix first, we’re highlighting celebrities who throw caution to the wind in the interest of speaking up for what they believe in, be it social issues, artistic choices or just the plain old (if slightly cruel) need for attention.

Cases in point:

-Legendary fiddler Charles Daniels trashes a growing segment of our population. “There are people out there fathering one illegitimate child after the other,” says The Devil Went Down to Georgia singer. “Quit givin’ money to people that absolutely refuse to work.”

CAPTION: "Put that SOB to work. Make him support those children," Charlie (above) tells us of America's deadbeat dads.

-Rather than having to “go a whole season with walking around with towels in front of me,” The Secret Life of the American Teenager star Molly Ringwald recounts how she worked with the show’s producers to weave her real-life pregnancy into the plotline.

-Jaleel White knocks his show-biz contemporaries for not supporting aging entertainers like the late Ed McMahon, telling us, “We have this new culture that says if you’re not the youngest, hottest, we don’t care about you.”

-Screen idol Bill Pullman explains why, regardless of its uncommercial nature, he has selected as his current acting project a revival of David Mamet‘s 1992 play, Oleanna.

-Purely in the interest of generating a great sound bite, comedian Dave Coulier punks one of his Full House stars live on the air.

-Despite having the golden opportunity of starring in the Twilight series, Michael Welch tells us he’d never want to be a vampire – because they are “miserable, miserable people.”

Plus, a special let-it-all-out farewell to the great Michael Jackson.

So don’t miss The Mix, hosted by everyone’s favorite pod jockey, Shaun Daily, tonight – and every Monday – at 9 p.m. ET!
