Bristol Palin: “I Am Pregnant” Again
Bristol Palin is pregnant with her second child. She announced the news Thursday on her blog. Palin began by writing, “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 added, “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.”
Palin, who’s already a mom to six-year-old Tripp Johnston, did not mention who the father is. As Gossip Cop reported in May, Palin and U.S. Marine veteran Dakota Meyer called off their wedding just days before they were supposed to exchange vows.
In announcing she was expecting again, Palin expressed, “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… When life gets tough, there is no other option but to get tougher.”
“I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you,” wrote the daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, before asking, “Please respect Tripp’s and my privacy during this time. I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy.” The unwed Palin, who split form Tripp’s father Levi Johnston in 2010, ended her blog post noting, “Tripp, this new baby, and I will all be fine, because God is merciful.”
