Sarah Palin's daughter, Bristol Palin, will make her acting debut on The Secret Life of the American Teenager, ABC Family announced.
The 19-year-old Palin has a 1-year-old son, Tripp, with ex-fiance Levi Johnston. She will play herself as one of Amy's (Shailene Woodley) friends at a music program for teen moms. Palin said in a statement that she is "thrilled" to appear on the hit series.
"Bristol Palin is the most famous teenage mother in America," said Secret Life executive producer Brenda Hampton. "We're thrilled to have her join us, and I think she will bring additional attention to the issues facing teen parents that we've been exploring for a couple of seasons now."
Palin's episode is slated to air this summer when Secret Life returns for its third season.
