Bristol Palin is set to become a mother for the second time. This most likely comes as a surprise to those who follow the Palin family happenings. Bristol recently broke off her engagement to Marine Dakota Meyer immediately before her May 23 wedding date. She announced her “big news” (a little earlier than planned) in a blog post on Thursday:
“(I’m announcing this news a lot sooner than I ever expected due to the constant trolls who have nothing better to talk about!!!). 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 … 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. 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, who recently went head to head with Miley Cyrus on the subject of religious tolerance, is already a mother to a 7-year-old son, Tripp. She was previously engaged twice to Tripp’s dad, Levi Johnston, before they went their separate ways in 2010. Bristol has not revealed the identity of her second child’s father.
