Bristol Palin Is Pregnant With Baby No. 2: I Know This Is a Huge Disappointment
By Rosalyn Oshmyansky
Bristol Palin is expecting another child and she doesn't seem too excited about it.
"I wanted you guys to be the first to know that I am pregnant," the daughter of the former Governor of Alaska wrote on her blog. "Honestly, I've been trying my hardest to keep my chin up on this one."
News of the 24-year-old's pregnancy comes after she recently called off her wedding to Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer amid tabloid rumors in May that Dakota had a "secret wife." The couple was supposed to marry over Memorial Day weekend.
"I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you," she said of her second pregnancy.
"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. "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."
While she fails to mention Meyer's name, she does ask for 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," she ended the post.
