For years, Molly Ringwald was the queen of teens thanks to her collaborations with famed director John Hughes. Between Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, and The Breakfast Club, the actress was practically an idol for a generation of teens across the country. But now, Ringwald finds herself the mom of three kids who are each coming into their own just as their famous mom did all those years ago.
Ringwald and her husband Panio Gianopoulos share three kids together — Mathilda Ereni Gianopoulos, born in 2003, and twins Roman Stylianos Gianopoulos and Adele Georgiana Gianopoulos, born in 2009. There’s no doubt that Ringwald is incredibly proud and close with her kids, as evidenced by her many snapshots of the trio on her Instagram page. And as they grow up, Ringwald’s kids are looking more and more like their famous mom each and every day.
But like any mom these days, famous or not, Ringwald has also hit some parenting speedbumps in her journey as a mom. “I thought I would’ve had a little bit more edge or info or intel or something,” the mom of three told Huffington Post in 2020. “But I feel like I’m very often just as confused and perplexed as anyone else.”
Indeed, Ringwald is on the same level playing field as a lot of moms in her generation, ‘80s teen queen status or not. Bearing all of this in mind, let’s dive in a bit deeper and learn more about Ringwald’s three kids!
