Cierra-Ramirez-gi.jpgThere’s definitely something in the water at Grant High School. When ABC Family’s “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” returns, “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” actress Cierra Ramirez will be joining the cast as Kathy, a freshman who is six months pregnant and plans to give the baby up for adoption, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Golden Globe nominee Shailene Woodley’s Amy, who of course dealt with her own teenage pregnancy on the show, will mentor Kathy in the show’s 100th episode.

This marks the fifth pregnant teen and/or teenage mother we’ve met on “Secret Life,” a list which includes Amy, Adrian (Francia Raisa), Heather (Rumer Willis), Bristol Palin and now Karen.

“Secret Life” returns on March 26 at 8 p.m.
