Here’s something you weren’t expecting. Bristol Palin, daughter of the infamous Sarah Palin, announced on her blog today that she’s expecting her second child. “I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you,” she says.
“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.”
Bristol had been in a relationship with 26-year-old Marine veteran Dakota Meyer. However, they broke up last month before their wedding day. The name of the father wasn’t mentioned in the statement. As most of you may remember, Bristol broke the Internet – and her mother’s campaign for vice president – back in 2008. That is because she got pregnant with her then-boyfriend Levi Johnston. Bristol was supposed to marry Levi, but that wedding didn’t happen, either.
She claims she decided to share this information sooner than planned because of “constant trolls who have nothing better to talk about.”
But don’t cry her a river. Bristol claims all will be well. “Tripp, this new baby, and I will all be fine, because God is merciful.”
