Hopefully, they can be good co-parents for their children together. However, it seems like this couple cannot get along!
The newest member of the Teen Mom OG cast rose to notoriety in 2008 when her mother, Sarah Palin, announced her teen pregnancy at the Republican National Convention.
In the following years, Bristol Palin drew heat for her homophobic comments and hypocritical support for abstinence-only birth control. She popped back into the spotlight in July when she announced that she would be joining the cast of MTV’s Teen Mom OG. Her arc on the show will focus on the demise of her troubled marriage, but it seems like the relationship had been doomed from the start.
In 2015, the Celebrity Wife Swap alum announced her second pregnancy in a depressing blog post, writing, “I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you…I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy.” At the time, she did not confirm the identity of the baby’s father.
Just a month earlier, she called off her wedding to outspoken veteran Dakota Meyer, only days before they were set to walk down the aisle. Reports circulated that she found out he had a secret marriage to another woman.
After Sailor Grace’s birth late in 2015, a nasty custody battle followed between the reality star and the Medal of Honor recipient. She eventually eloped with Dakota in secret in 2016. They welcomed their second child together, Atlee Bay in 2017.
Unfortunately, it was not meant to last. He filed for divorce in February, noting on the papers it was due to “discord or conflict of personalities.” In the months following the legal action, the couple was all over social media with affectionate posts, leading Teen Mom fans to speculate on their relationship status, but in August, Bristol referred to herself on Instagram as “freshly divorced.” In a Q and A session on her story, she added that she was “single forever lezzbereal” and “not ready to date.”
