In brief: Not rare

Teens may envy parents who have it all together at a point you are not sure you ever will.
That envy may focus on kids, which is part of what they do well.They may decide its too hard to be an actress but with a baby you could show how great a mother you could be. Great idea, but timing is poor.These kids need counseling and help in career planning.
