The very vocal daughter of Sarah Palin is pregnant. Bristol Palin announced the news that she is expecting her second child, but has yet to reveal further details. Looks like Tripp is getting a sibling!
Bristol Palin, 24, revealed on June 25 that she is in fact pregnant with her second child. This comes as a shock to most, because she has strongly promoted abstinence after she gave birth to her son Tripp Johnston back in 2008. Did she have a change of heart?
Bristol announced the news on her blog with a long post that stated the following. “I’m announcing this news a lot sooner than I ever expected due to the constant trolls who have nothing better to talk about!!!” She went on to say, “I wanted you guys to be the first to know that I am pregnant.”
“Honestly, I’ve been trying my hardest to keep my chin up on this one. At the end of the day there’s nothing I can’t do with God by my side, and I know I am fully capable of handling anything that is put in front of me with dignity and grace.”
She went on to say, “Life moves on no matter what. So no matter how you feel, you get up, get dressed, show up, and never give up. When life gets tough, there is no other option but to get tougher.”
Bristol added that she wants this to remain out of the media. “I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you. But please respect Tripp’s and my privacy during this time. I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy.”
She finished her post by saying, “My little family always has, and always will come first. Tripp, this new baby, and I will all be fine, because God is merciful.”
Bristol didn’t mention if the dad was U.S. Marine veteran Dakota Meyer, the man she was supposed to marry back in March.
More news to come.
