Molly Ringwald Tells the Story of Her Daughter's ‘Iconic’ Conception

In an interview with the Times on April 3, Molly Ringwald revealed that she conceived her daughter, Mathilda, with husband Panio Gianopoulos in the dressing room of the Broadway theater Studio 54, which is truly some next level nepo baby stuff. Like, imagine being in show business from the literal point of conception. At the time, in 2003, Ringwald was playing Sally Bowles in the musical Cabaret.

“It’s so Mathilda to be conceived in such an iconic place,” the Sixteen Candles star told the outlet. Mathilda, now 20, wasn’t a child star like her mom, but it looks like she did eventually decide to follow in her footsteps and go into acting. Her first role, according to IMDb at least, is as Georgia in the upcoming Amazon Prime romcom, The Idea of You.

In the interview, Molly Ringwald continued that she’d always wanted to have children, but it took her “a while” to get pregnant for the first time. “I was 36 when she was born,” Ringwald said. “At that age the biological clock is a real thing and it had kind of become deafening. All I could think about was: must have kids.”
