     Main Characters 

Amy Juergens

Portrayed by: Shailene Woodley

Richard "Ricky" Underwood

Portrayed by: Daren Kagasoff

Benjamin "Ben" Boykevich

Portrayed by: Ken Baumann

  • Nice Guy: Ben is constantly stated to be a nice guy by the other characters, although whether this is true or not depends on the episode.
  • The Dulcinea Effect: Ben has a tendency to protect girls, even if he just met them. Such as when he took the fall for Dylan when she got caught with pot.
  • Stalker with a Crush

Adrian Lee

Portrayed by: Francia Raisa

Grace Kathleen Bowman

Portrayed by: Megan Park

  • Hypocrite: Probably more so than the other characters. She tends to be pretty judgmental toward the other characters despite being no better herself.
  • Informed Attractiveness: Grace is supposedly the prettiest girl in school.
  • Odd Friendship: With Adrian.

     Minor Characters 

Margaret Shakur

Portrayed by: L. Scott Caldwell


  • Good Parents: To Ricky and Ethan. This might be because of the lack of screen-time she and Sanjay get.

Sanjay Shakur

Cindy Lee Enriquez

Portrayed by: Paola Turbay


Ruben Enriquez

Portrayed by: Philip Anthony-Rodriguez


John Juergens Underwood

Portrayed by: Joseph Levinson and Matthew Levinson

  • Ambiguous Disorder: While nothing is made clear, it should be noted that by the end of the show, John is 3 years old but is still not able to speak in complete sentences (and has a total of about 20 words in his vocabulary) and is still small enough to sit in a high chair.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Despite the show being about pregnant teenagers, John tends to disappear randomly and only cameos enough that you remember he exists. He hardly has any influence on the plot of the show, other than being the only child of Ricky and Amy.
