Molly Ringwald alluded that her eldest child was destined for greatness based on where she was likely conceived.

The ’80s icon shared a wild factoid about daughter Mathilda Gianopoulos during an interview published Wednesday (Apr. 03, 2024) in The Times of London, saying, “I believe that Mathilda was conceived in the dressing room at Studio 54 right at the end of my run playing Sally Bowles in [the musical] Cabaret in 2003.”

The Breakfast Club actor said that, in retrospect, the New York discotheque-turned-theater made sense as a starting point for her child.

“It’s so Mathilda to be conceived in such an iconic place,” Ringwald said of the 20-year-old, who recently made her acting debut in the Anne Hathaway-fronted rom-com The Idea of You.
