Adrian Lee

Played by Francia Raisa

Adrian Lee (Francia Raisa) from "The secret life of the American Teenager" is the daughter of Rueben (Philip Anthony-Rodriguez) and Cindy Enriquez (Paola Turbay) and lives next door to Amy Juergens (Shailene Woodley). Her parents are not together anymore and she has two step siblings. Her mother is a flight attendant and is away from home a lot, leaving Adrian in the company of the Grant High bad boy, Ricky Underwood (Daren Kagasoff). Adrian is the quintessential bad girl. She is best friends and secretly in love with Ricky who is her partner in crime.

When Adrian finds out that Ricky kissed Amy, she is heartbroken and seeks revenge by sleeping with Ben Boykewich (Ken Baumann). This only makes matters worse and Ricky breaks up with her. Soon Adrian notices that she has missed her periods and is pregnant with Ben's child as a result of the one night stand. Adrian is initially sure that she wants to get an abortion but eventually decides to keep the baby with Ben. Once Amy finds out that Adrian is in the same situation as her, she offers Adrian her friendship and Adrian accepts. Ricky and Adrian finally come face to face for the first time since their breakup and kiss. But both know that they can only be friends. At the end of the episode Adrian confesses her love for Ricky to her unborn child. However, by the end of Season 3, it seems that Adrian is finally falling in love with Ben.
