Bristol Palin Pregnant Again: ‘This Has Been and Will Be a Huge Disappointment to My Family’
Bristol Palin is pregnant with her second child.
“(I’m announcing this news a lot sooner than I ever expected due to the constant trolls who have nothing better to talk about!!!),” Bristol began. “I wanted you guys to be the first to know that I am pregnant.”
Bristol welcomed her first child Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston in 2008 — when she was just 18 years old — which was a major controversy between her and her conservative Christian family.
“I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you,” she noted referencing her first pregnancy. “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 continued, “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… When life gets tough, there is no other option but to get tougher.”
Just last month Bristol struggled through another hurdle. She called off her wedding with her then-fiance Dakota Meyer, just days before they were set to walk down the aisle. Reports circulated that she found out he had a secret marriage to another woman.
There has been no confirmation about whether or not Meyer is the father. Bristol simply concluded the 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.”
