LOS ANGELES, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- Bristol Palin has landed a guest spot on the television drama "The Secret Life of the American Teenager," ABC Family announced Tuesday.
Palin, 19, is a single mother and the daughter of former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.
The younger Palin will play herself in an episode of "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" set to tape this summer, the New York Daily News said.
"I am thrilled to be on this show and to be a part of a program that educates teens and young adults about the consequences of teen pregnancy," Palin said in a statement.
"Bristol Palin is the most famous teenage mother in America," the Daily News quoted "Secret Life" Executive Producer Brenda Hampton as saying. "I think she will bring additional attention to the issues facing teen parents that we've been exploring for a couple of seasons now."
