Bristol Palin, the eldest daughter of former Alaskan Governor and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, will guest star on ‘The Secret Life of the American Teenager‘ when the hit ABC Family drama premieres its third season this summer.

Touting 19-year-old Palin as “the most famous teenage mother in America,” ‘Secret Life’ executive producer Brenda Hampton says, “We’re thrilled to have her join us. I think she will bring additional attention to the issues facing teen parents that we’ve been exploring for a couple of seasons now.”

Playing herself, Palin will appear as one of Amy’s (Shailene Woodley) friends at a music program for young mothers.

“I am thrilled to be on this show,” Palin says, “and to be a part of a program that educates teens and young adults about the consequences of teen pregnancy.”

Palin is the mother of 14-month-old Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston, whose father is Levi Johnston.

‘The Secret Life of the American Teenager’ is currently airing the remainder of its second season on Mondays at 8/7c, and draws ABC Family’s biggest audience.
