Molly Ringwald is no longer the freckled young girl who thrived in teen movies. The "Facts of Life" actress is all grown now and also a mom at heart.


Molly Ringwald, who started her on-screen career at a young age, was fortunate enough to get recognition in family dramas like "Different Strokes" and "Facts of Life."

The 1980s flourished with teen movies that had Ringwald playing significant teen roles ranging from teen romance, teen struggles and peer pressure.

Ringwald appeared in several John Hughes' teen films such as "Sixteen Candles," "The Breakfast Club" and "Pretty in Pink."

Although the '80s helped Molly gain her acclaimed teen fame, the young girl stopped being a teenager at a point as she took on adult roles while she went on to become a wife and a mom.


In recent times, the former child star is often seen enjoying motherhood as she continually shows off her kids on social media.

In 2003, Molly gave birth to her first child, Mathilda Ereni Gianopoulos, whom she shares with her writer spouse, Panio Gianopoulos. She became a mom for the second time after giving birth to a set of twins, Roman and Adele in 2009.


Speaking on her experience of motherhood, Ringwald couldn't help sharing the stressful side of parenting as she told PEOPLE:

"You get up with one of the babies and feed and change that one and get the baby back to sleep, and the other wakes up, and then you feed and change that one."


She went on to add that:

"It is exhausting, but it's wonderful."

Mathilda seems to have picked the cue from her mom. Not only is she Molly's look alike, but she is also looking forward to a career in entertainment.


Rather than an acting career, Mathilda seems to be opting for modelling and her proud mom roots for her all the way.

The doting mom never hesitates to show off her pretty daughter on Instagram. While Molly is the ideal mom, she also makes sure her career thrives.

Presently Molly plays the recurring role of Mary Andrew on CW TV series, "Riverdale."
