Palin announces she 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!!! 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. 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. I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you. But please respect Tripp’s and my privacy during this time. I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy. My little family always has, and always will come first. Tripp, this new baby, and I will all be fine, because God is merciful.
Palin shares her thoughts on Facebook about daughter Bristol Palin’s engagement
Our families couldn’t be happier for Bristol and Dakota! We’re honored to welcome Dakota into our family. He’s an American hero and patriot whose service to our country – like all his fellow Medal of Honor recipients – has been above and beyond the call of duty; but even more important is he’s a good and kind man who loves Bristol and Tripp, and is loved by them. They met last year when he was in Alaska to film an episode of “Amazing America,” and even then it was noticed that just as we like to describe Bristol as “an old soul” wise beyond her years, the same also applies to Dakota
Palin is involved in a drunken brawl during a birthday party she attends in Alaska. According to police reports, Palin punches home owner Korey Klingenmeyer in the face repeatedly after he pushes her to the ground. Neither side is pressing charges. Sara Palin defends her daughter:
I love my Bristol! My straight-shooter is one of the strongest young women you’ll ever meet. I have to say this as a proud mama: right up there with their work ethic and heart for those less fortunate, my kids’ defense of family makes my heart soar! As you can imagine, they and my extended family have experienced so many things (liberal media-driven) that may have crushed others without a strong foundation of faith, and I’m thankful for our friends’ prayer shield that surrounds them, allowing faith to remain their anchor. Thank you, prayer warriors! I love you!
Palin appears on the cover of People to discuss how becoming a mom is a full time job.
Abstinence is the safest way, but kids should know about everything else too. I didn’t think about getting pregnant. I don’t think anyone realizes that it really can happen to you.
