"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, 19, said in a statement.

"Bristol Palin is the most famous teenage mother in America," the show's executive producer Brenda Hampton tells People, "I think she will bring additional attention to the issues facing teen parents that we've been exploring for a couple of seasons now."

The episode will be filmed in Los Angeles and shown this summer during the third season, which airs Mondays 8 PM EST and co-stars Molly Ringwald, Mark Derwin, India Eisley and Ken Baumann.
