In addition, Secret Life features multiple guest stars each week, some having larger roles than others.
The plot focuses on the character of Amy Juergens after becoming accidentally pregnant at band camp.
She confesses her pregnancy to her two best friends, Madison and Lauren, who accidentally spread the rumor that Amy had sex with Ricky.
After being accepted into a summer music program in New York, Amy decides to go but is surprised to learn that the program is for teen mothers.
During this time, Ben reveals to Amy that Adrian had gotten pregnant from their one-night stand, and that he had been keeping her pregnancy from Amy for several weeks.
After Amy decides to keep the baby, Grace and Adrian throw her a baby shower, where Amy then goes into labor.
While in the hospital, Amy reprimands Ricky for getting her pregnant, but then realizes that she was equally responsible for what had happened.
Not knowing this at first, Amy thinks that Jimmy broke up with her because she was a bad kisser, and asks Ricky to kiss her just to be sure.
Adrian finds out about the kiss, and sleeps with Ben in order to get back at both of them (however, Adrian believed it was more than a kiss until Ricky informs her after Adrian and Ben's one-night-stand.) Amy and Ben quickly reconcile and get back together around the end of the year.
The next day, Ricky is surprised that Amy isn't in a hurry to marry, but is content with just being engaged until she feels the time is right for them to marry.
Later in the season, Amy thinks she is pregnant again and becomes very moody.
Halfway through her pregnancy, Amy's mother Anne informs her that in order to keep the baby, she will have to find a job and daycare.
Anne intends to get a job to replace the loss of her husband George's income as they prepare for divorce.
Later he proposes at their graduation, where he is also valedictorian.
