Molly Ringwald: The Secret Is In The Scheduling

“Brat Packer” turned mom-of-three Molly Ringwald is kept busy these days by both career and kids. Tackling motherhood on-screen and off, she stars in the ABC Family hit The Secret Life of the American Teenager and is raising daughter Mathilda, 6, and twins Adele and Roman, 8 months.

“I’ve had to get a lot better about scheduling,” Molly tells Entertainment Tonight of how she keeps up with her many responsibilities. “I used to be very spontaneous – I’d get on a plane, go anywhere I wanted anytime I wanted – and that’s sort of changed. I just have to think a little further in advance and that’s okay. I also have help – my cousin is also my nanny, which is nice, so I get to keep it in the family. … Luckily I [also] have a husband who’s incredibly involved and who’s a great father.”

Having recently partnered with Ragu for the Recipe for a Good Start scholarship contest, Molly reveals how she encourages her family to keep up a healthy lifestyle:

“For me, my recipe for a good start involves cooking and communication with my kids; I find that kids tend to be less suspicious of things that they had a hand in making,” she says. “Just being able to have a meal with the family and to sit around and talk about the day, it’s just so important. You just don’t get that time back.”
