Bristol Palin Talks Newborn Daughter and 'Wonderful' New Life in Texas: 'My Life Has Never Been This Normal'
By Leena Tailor
One week after welcoming daughter Atlee Bay, Bristol Palin is opening up about her “breeze” birth, newly-strengthened bond with husband Dakota Meyer and new life in Texas.
“Her birth was a breeze and Dakota did amazing!!” Palin blogged about her bundle of joy, who entered the world weighing 7 lbs., 4 oz. on May 8. “[Dakota] held my hand, took care and encouraged me the entire time. I could not have a more supportive husband. This pregnancy has strengthened our bond and made our relationship stand even firmer on the foundation that we have proudly built up for our little family.”
The couple tied the knot last June, shortly after welcoming daughter Sailor, now 1. Palin also has an 8-year-old son, Tripp, with ex Levi Johnston, while Meyer has two other daughters.
Palin, who is the daughter of politician Sarah Palin, described how her older kids are embracing having a baby sister to help take care of.
“[Sailor] loves her little sister and just wants to help us with everything… :/,” shared the 26-year-old former Dancing With the Stars contestant. “She is still a little rough, but it is all out of love! Tripp has always been the best big brother, he has a heart of gold. He has become a pro at this point, this is his 4th little sister (yes fourth, his dad has two). He loves our new addition just like I knew he would!”
“When Dakota and I got married, we both agreed that we would ‘meet in the middle’ and move somewhere to dig our roots in a mutual, new, place,” she shared. “We decided on Texas, and I couldn’t be happier! The kids love it too.”
“I feel like my life has never been this ‘normal,’” Palin continued. “It’s been so wonderful and I give all the thanks to my husband.. he has shown me really what the definition of love truly is. He really is the most selfless man -- and has been my rock through everything this past year.”
