Bristol Palin, daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, announced Thursday that she is pregnant with her second child.
“I wanted you guys to be the first to know that I am pregnant,” she wrote in her blog.
“Honestly, I’ve been trying my hardest to keep my chin up on this one,” Palin wrote. “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,” she added.
“I know this has been and will be a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you,” Palin said. “But please respect Tripp’s and my privacy during this time. I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy.”
When the 24-year-old reality star became pregnant by her then-boyfriend Levi Johnson seven years ago, it became something of a national scandal.
Tripp Johnson was the result of that pregnancy.
Five weeks ago Sarah Palin announced that Bristol had called off her wedding with Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer.
“Bristol and Dakota couldn’t be more thankful for the love and support of family and friends over the past months while preparing for their wedding,” she wrote. “They have informed loved ones that unfortunately the announced celebration planned for May 23 will not be held.”
