Asking for No Sympathy, Bristol Palin Announces She's Pregnant

By    |   Thursday, 25 Jun 2015 09:58 PM

Bristol Palin says she's pregnant with her second child, making the announcement in a blog post that concedes the news is "a huge disappointment" and asks for no "lectures" or "sympathy."

"Honestly, I've been trying my hardest to keep my chin up on this one," the 24-year-old daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin writes.

"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. Life moves on no matter what. So no matter how you feel, you get up, get dressed, show up, and never give up. When life gets tough, there is no other option but to get tougher."

Palin's first child, Tripp Johnston, was born in December 2008 when she was 18; she was engaged twice to her son's father, Levi Johnston. The pair split in 2010.

"I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you," she wrote in her blog post. "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 ends her post vowing "my little family … Tripp, this new baby, and I will all be fine, because God is merciful."

She made no mention of the baby's father.

Last month, Palin called off her wedding to 26-year-old Marine Dakota Meyer days before the wedding.

Palin's first pregnancy was announced on the opening day of the 2008 Republican National Convention after her mother was chosen as John McCain's vice presidential running mate.

She was later named an ambassador for The Candie's Foundation to raise awareness about teen pregnancy.

"It changes literally every aspect of your life, and if girls realized how hard it was to be a teen mom, they would think twice about having sex without the proper education and proper knowledge," she said in 2010.
